The Vikings will select runningback Adrian Peterson, University of Oklahoma.

Explanation:
As pseudo-GM of the Vikings, I had to run this pick by my wife. She is a Vikings fan and I felt that she should have the final say on the pick. Because of her, I get to see a lot of the Vikings games over the course of the season.

The Vikings D is great and they simply need to do a better job of controlling the ball and keep their defense off the field. The Vikings are going to need a better rushing attack to take the pressure off of QB's Brad Johnson and Tavaris Jackson and keep 3rd downs managable. Sure, the Vikes need a WR, but why pick one now when you can wait til the end of the 7th round . And I think current Viking RB Chester Taylor was overworked last year. He needs a runner backing him up that could physically wear down the defense. Peterson fits the bill perfectly and gives the Vikings the 1-2 punch at RB that is now popular in the NFL. The day of the feature back is dying - and overuse cost guys like Terrell Davis, Jamal Anderson and Priest Holmes their careers. The Vikings could have a great OL and Peterson is scratching the surface of his ability. And pairing him w/ Taylor will hopefully keep him healthy. Divison-wise, the Colts showed the Vikings that the best way to beat the Bears is to run at them. And we know the Packers and Lions can be run on.

Says Coach Brad Childress - "We're excited to have Peterson at RB. He's a good kid who has been well-coached at Oklahoma. Boy, this offseason has gone quick. Seems like the Super Bowl was just last week!"


"Things were so much easier when Peyton was still a Colt and Tebow was still a Bronco"

"You lose focus in this game for one second - and somebody gets hurt" ... Danny, Oceans Eleven

Despite a glaring need at WR, I'm going to select Levi Brown, OT, Penn St. Jamaal Anderson was very tempting but protecting Carr is priority #1.

My explaination:
Its very simple, I need someone to protect Carr's blind side. If yall remember Martz's offenses during his time at the Rams, Kurt Warner (when he played a full season) got sacked 29 times in 1999, 38 times in 2001 during those seasons he totaled 4353 yds, 41 tds in 1999 and 4830 yds, 36 tds in 2001. I know Kitna threw for 4000 yds, but threw 21 ints, and Carr didnt throw that many picks despite the fact he was running for his life in every pass play.

The Miami Dolphins select, Ted Ginn Jr., WR, Ohio State.

This guy will stretch the field for the Dolphins. Chambers has never really developed into the play maker we all hoped for and Boston and Booker, well need I say more. This Phins have had alot of other pretenders at WR but this guy is the real deal. The Dolphins have to give Culpepper at least one more season don't they and maybe some weaspons too. This guy is the weapon they have been looking for.

Minni is a surprise. considering the DE had zero sacks last year and could not get pressure on the QB even if a revolving door was in to do the blocking. but how can you pass on peterson.
Detroit reached a bit here. could not trade down?
Miami goes speed over hands. does not do any good for a QB when he is on his back. But it fills a need for sure. Throw it up there and let Ginn run under it.

Sorry for my tardiness guys, I've been in Shreveport attending a funeral. Gaines Adams was a good pick though hagan, that's who I would have gone with. Originally, I would have selected Joe Thomas to shore up that OLine in order to open up holes for Edge and give Leinart some time, but he was taken. And then I also think that Branch is a better prospect, but he too was taken. Well done hagan
