Since the recent departure of veteran CB, Antoine Winfield, the Vikings now have a need for another CB. With 2 first round picks and Banks declining stock, due to perform at the combine, the pair seem like a match made in heaven. Banks is a long CB, who is very physical against the run and is most comfortable playing zone coverage. If he falls to 23 or 25, I think we should take him.

Thoughts and/or opinions.

I wouldn't mind that. Go Allen, Banks, Sylvester, Dobson, Kiko, Winters... holes plugged!

I'd rather see the Vikings get David Amerson. Had 13 interceptions in 2011, he's a playmaker something we lack at the corner position. Cook and Robinson combined for 2 ints last year. If the first 4 picks go Justin Hunter, Sylvester Williams, David Amerson, and Robert Woods/Quinton Patton I think we're solid. I also like the idea of the Vikings signing Urlacher and Jennings to fill the holes on this team. But I do trust Spielman to make big moves, we'll wait and see what he does come draft time.

I'd take Hunter over Allen. Hunter and Dobson/Rogers/Bailey would make my life complete lol. I am excited to see how Kiko does tomorrow at Oregon's pro day. Dobson killed it today.

I like Banks a lot but I think corner is one position in this draft that is fairly deep.

I think Jordan Poyer is tailor made as a slot corner in a zone scheme. Though he has had some off the field issues and I question his desire as a tackler.

If you want an outside zone coverage corner I would rather wait until the third round and get a guy like Dwayne Gratz. He is very similar to Chris Cook and a young Cedric Griffin.

David Amerson just does not fit our scheme at all.

Amerson is a late 2nd early 3rd. His doesn't have the greatest hips, and if you watched the Tennessee game, you can see my boy Zach Rogers burning him.

I like Darius Slay, Dwayne Gratz, or Will Davis in the third more than Banks in the 2nd.

Give me the Honey Badger in the 4th, possibly the 3rd depending how the draft plays out.

Banks has the school record with 16 picks, at MSU. He's no slouch, trust me. He works best in man coverage against bigger WRs, and take a look around the divison, Megatron, Nelson, Marshall, Jeffery.

That would be too good to be true. I like him a lot, watched every game he played in at LSU. I would only take him with our 4th round pick, not the early DET pick though.

If we take the honey badger earlier than the 5th round, I will have lost all faith in Speilman.

Trufant personally. He just seems like a much better natural athlete.

For our system? Banks, and it's not even close in my mind.

My favorite CB in the draft by a long shot. And I believe he can play in any scheme.
