VIKINGS seem to be showing interest in the #1 pick

"TRADE WINDS BLOWING AGAIN?":

There were several indications throughout the day on Friday made to Next Level Scouting, Inc. that a new suitor for the top overall pick may have stepped forward, as the MINNESOTA VIKINGS seem to be showing more than a passing interest in obtaining the #1 pick in next weekend's NFL Draft... while the Vikings own a pair of first rounders of their own (#7, #18) that alone would not allow them to vault up to the top spot... as a matter of fact the team's second round choice, which is #49 overall would still leave them considerably short in terms of how most NFL teams judge potential trades of draft choices... "Well, they (Minneosta) certainly have the ammunition to try making a move like that, but it would likely be a costly trade in terms of (total) choices exchanged", explained one NFL scouting director who was posed the idea of the Vikings attempting to move up with San Francisco... using even our own version of the "Trade Value" chart, the one possible scenario that "On Paper" would be considered as a plausible trade option for both sides would include the 49ers sending the #1 overall choice, plus their own third round choice (#65) to the Vikings for their two first round choices (#7, #18), as well as their second round pick (#49) and third round pick (#80)... as on most "Trade Value" charts that would workout to a "Total Points" trade of roughly 3300 (3270) from the 49ers perspective and 3200 (3165) coming from the Vikings... should a deal like this get consummated than the Vikings would make MICHIGAN senior wide receiver BRAYLON EDWARDS the first overall selection... while the 49ers could then have several options available at #7, as there could actually still be one of the two QB's still on the board at the point, as well as Miami cornerback ANTREL ROLLE or possibly USC wide receiver MIKE WILLIAMS... the Vikings would catapult up to take possilby the #1 player on their draft board, while also obtaining back a third round choice that could be used to potentially grab Ohio State kicker MIKE NUGENT... a future replacement for offensive guard Dave Dixon... or another defensive player for depth purposes; defensive end or cornerback.

Man I sure hope the Vikings are not putting together a Hershel Walker style deal. I know they got rid of Moss, but they do not need to panic to get Braylon Edwards or Mike Williams. They could get either of those guys a few slots lower in the draft. I sure hope they do not panic. Burleson, Robinson, and Campbell are a pretty good receiving corps. Burleson especially, has the skills to be a #1 guy.

I agree, they have a solid WRs! They have had a solid offseason so far adding so many quality players on defense. If I was the GM I would trade away one of those backs if I made any deal.

Burleson may or may not be a Legit #1. Moss drew alot of the best coverage and reduced the pressure on his fellow WR. How much of an impact his absence will have is yet to be seen but Culpepper dropped to the bottom of my top 10 fantasy QB's with his departure. B. Edwards would put him back in the top 5.

Culpepper had a great season last year and keep in mind Mr. "I play when I want too" was on the shelf for a good portion of the year last year and he still put uo HUGE numbers. He would have been the NFL MVP in any other year had it not been for Manning.

Culpepper with or without Moss is still in the top 5 fantasy QBs IMO.
