Our Picks So Far...

With the Vikings first round pick in the 07 NFL Draft they selected Adrian Peterson. Adrian was my second choice after LaRon Landry. However, the Redskins picked up Landry one spot ahead of us and left the Vikings with the choice between Peterson and Quinn. I am very glad that the Vikes took Peterson over Quinn. Everyone in the room thought that Miami wanted Quinn so at first we were disappointed that the Vikings didn't trade the pick down to Miami and received a 2nd or 3rd rounder. A few minutes later Miami made what could have been the worst pick of the draft by picking Ted Ginn Jr. with the 9th pick. Sort of reminds me of us picking Troy Williamson with the 7th overall a couple years ago.

Due to other obligations I was not able to watch the 2nd or 3rd rounds of the draft.

In the 2nd round the purple and gold took WR Sidney RIce and in the third CB Marcus McCauley.

I am a little surprised that the Vikes did not take Dwayne Jarrett in the 2nd round but what the heck do I know? These guys do this for a living and I am going to trust that they have valid reasons for picking Rice. I am glad the Vikings took a corner in the 3rd. I would be pumped if the kid can play nickleback.

Looking forward I hope to see the Vikings draft Troy Smith in the 4th round. The kid has got talent and I think would be worthy of a 4th round selection. I would also like us to take another wide out and a defensive end.
