we could get some quality interior line guys in rounds 2-4. Should we trade down a few spots and get some more picks? We still need a good 3rd receiver and a cover lb.

Don’t see those needs..

Fast tight end yes, #3 Wr, no..

Cover lb. what down and distance do we need this over a better coverage scheme in nickel or dime?

OL, OL, a TE, OL depth, OL depth, OL depth..

Ffs fix the thing that make our whole offense sputter and suck and threatens every QB’s health.

The OL.

It seems (finally) there is a consensus in here about acquiring a modern-day TE. Just think if we would have been ahead (or even) of the curve on that one?

Unfortunately, the Minnesota Vikings have yet to learn the importance of a modern-day TE, especially for a team with only two WR's.

Rudolph isn't going to be replaced.

Stu Voight may be game for a comeback. Joe Senser might need cash to pay his wife's legal bills. Jimmy K can probably still keep up with Rudy in the 40....

This is a very interesting article and addresses depth of the draft at each position and therefore the strategy of when to take them. From this my take is that we could take an OT in the first round and a OG and a DT in the third (one is a compensatory pick) with a TE sandwiched between in the second. In the fourth round we could take best player available at running back or wide receiver that is still available. I don't believe we will get any more selections until the sixth round, which is a crap shoot round. (We traded our fifth rounder.)

This is a really, really, really good draft for DT's. Either we beat up Richardson's asking price for re-signing or we select a good one in the draft. This is apparently not so good of a linebacker draft. Anthony Barr should have leverage from that. The problem is that he may price us out and I do believe he is looking for a better fit for his specific talents. That puts more pressure on the team to find a LB in free agency or to draft high.

Looking at the profiles, Mack Wilson looks like a good fit for what Zimmer likes:

And at OLB there seems to be some options early for the first or second day.

OG Chris Lindstrom (Boston College)
It was worth questioning how Lindstrom would adapt to playing outside of BC’s run-heavy scheme, but after this week, there should be no more questions. Lindstrom easily held his own against any defensive tackles that came at him in pass protection, and in the run game he looked very impressive moving forward and erasing linebackers. Lindstrom looks like an immediate starter for the team that drafts him.

I don't know if it is overriding enough, but since you never "lose" picks, it would seem like there is an advantage to be had by alternating years where you are signing FAs vs letting FAs go

I stand corrected. Sigh. Well, we'll have to see if we get extra picks from trading down or if we can get some quality free agents to sign this off-season. It feels like there are too many holes to fill.

Absolutely and an interesting point. So many variables come into play though. Be interesting, Patriots, I think lead in comp picks in recent years. Maybe signing 1 year contracts is advantageous as you have more opportunities for guys to be signed elsewhere. IF you are buying low, selling high (Keenum). Being a FA destination has to help. You gotta be pretty confident you can replace players on the fly. Be interesting analysis.

I don't get why Bradford is out of the equation. Yes they cut him, but it was late in the season and he earned most of his contract right? It makes no sense to me if somebody truly understands this please help me out.

https://www.dailynorseman.com/2018/11/3/18059562/arizona-cardinals-release-sam-bradford-minnesota-vikings-lose-high-compensatory-pick

It touches on my question, but doesn't IMO make much sense. They signed him for $20 million and I believe paid the majority of it. They did cut him a little earlier than I thought week 10. Players get paid for the bye week if I understand correctly even if he was only on the team for 8 game weeks so Bradford was with the team for over half the season. Maybe over half the season is the standard for compensatory picks and that is judged by game weeks only. The article said that if they kept Bradford one more week the Vikings would have held on to the 3rd round comp pick. Also by cutting Bradford the Cards gained a 6th round pick. So it looks like teams can manipulate the comp pick process by when they cut players. As a Vikings fan of course I'm biased, but IMO this is skullduggery and it stinks.

I think it's funny that any Vikings fan would be upset over "skullduggery" after the Steve Hutchinson "poison pill" contract.

I agree this is an interesting strategy, and one that I've never heard before. I wonder if it's on Spielman's radar, as it sure should be. Teams should be able to manipulate things in their favor to a meaningful extent.

I don't get why Bradford is out of the equation. Yes they cut him, but it was late in the season and he earned most of his contract right? It makes no sense to me if somebody truly understands this please help me out.


I don't pretend to understand it, but this article touches on your question.

It touches on my question, but doesn't IMO make much sense. They signed him for $20 million and I believe paid the majority of it. They did cut him a little earlier than I thought week 10. Players get paid for the bye week if I understand correctly even if he was only on the team for 8 game weeks so Bradford was with the team for over half the season. Maybe over half the season is the standard for compensatory picks and that is judged by game weeks only. The article said that if they kept Bradford one more week the Vikings would have held on to the 3rd round comp pick. Also by cutting Bradford the Cards gained a 6th round pick. So it looks like teams can manipulate the comp pick process by when they cut players. As a Vikings fan of course I'm biased, but IMO this is skullduggery and it stinks.


It looks like he needed to be on the active roster for at least 10 weeks.

It seems (finally) there is a consensus in here about acquiring a modern-day TE. Just think if we would have been ahead (or even) of the curve on that one?

Unfortunately, the Minnesota Vikings have yet to learn the importance of a modern-day TE, especially for a team with only two WR's.

Rudolph isn't going to be replaced.


The last "modern-day" TE the Vikings have had who amounted to anything was probably Steve Jordan and that goes back too far for many on here to remember. Some may say Joel Senser was a that type of TE but his career was cut short and he was never a fast TE who could outrun LB and maybe some of the secondary D-Backs. The Vikings have had guys like Jim Kleinsasser, primarily known for his blocking, Kyle Rudolph, known for one yd(s) after-the-catch, Bob Tucker (played with Tommy Kramer and Co.) and before that Stu Voigt. It has not been a position of notoriety for the Vikings over their history. Forgettable, for the most part.

Don't forget Jermaine Wiggins, Visanthe Shiancoe, and John Carlson. Wiggins had good hands. Shiancoe was not bad as far as Viking tight ends go. Carlson was a complete waste.
