Per PFT: ViQueens wanted Patrick Robins

Last year around this time, Vikings coach Brad Childress crowed about snatching Percy Harvin one pick before the Patriots, who Childress believed was set to take him.

This year, Childress and Vikings G.M. Rick Spielman may have outsmarted themselves.

Both Judd Zuldad and Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune report that the Vikings traded down to No. 34 with the hope of selecting Florida State cornerback Patrick Robinson.

It looked like a safe move, but Saints surprised the Vikings (and everyone else) by taking a cornerback at No. 32.

With Minnesota's apparent favorite target off the board, a trade down early in the second round seems even more likely.

"May God have mercy on those who doubted his Saints."

BOOYAH suckas, we win again!! I am as surprised as everyone else but I have chosen to trust the FO.

In a pass driven league, where you can't even fart in the QB's direction, I guess you can't have enough fast DBs

I've heard this multiple times as well. Minny has to feel like they have egg on their face right now. It would be so fun to be a fly on the wall in Minny's war room as they try and talk themselves into Jimmy Clausen now.

Though we disagree on Cody, 100% agree on this. Would love have been there and invisible. I would have slapped Chilly's bald head before he could.

Ok, after reading this, I must say I just need to trust Loomis.

I love it Minnesota is on the 30(draft number) they roll right fading (trade down) chilly throws a shot across his body expecting the target to be there(Robinson)at the 34 (new position) Peyton steps in ...or sends his man Breesus in at the 32(draft number)to nab the target and go the other way.

That was fun!!! Now im liking the pick even more...I see an opening night interception of farve by Robinson as destiny in the making!!!
