2007 Viking Draft Critique

Posted by LOTGK on July 22, 2007

With the 7th over all selection in the 2007 NFL draft, the Minnesota Vikings select Brady Quinn, Quarterback from Notre Dame. Yes Viking fans, that was a statement never heard at the draft. The Vikings drafted Adrian Peterson, Running back, from Oklahoma instead. But this draft selection will be analyzed for years to come. If Tarvaris Jackson falters this season, and he certainly may, and if Brady Quinn does well in Cleveland, there will be a lot of “What ifs” floating around. For the record, I think the Vikings made the right choice in Peterson, who could become the next Chuck Foreman for the Vikings.

First Pick: Adrian Peterson, RB. Peterson has all the skills, speed, power, vision, patience, a second gear, good hands, and that special knack to get through the line. With Chester Taylor also in the back field, it should take plenty of pressure off Tarvaris Jackson, who the Vikings do not want passing the ball 40 times a game. Taylor and Peterson will be a formidable one two punch for the Vikings. My prediction, Peterson runs for 1000 yards with over a 4.5 yard per carry average and 10 TD’s.

Second Pick: Sidney Rice, WR. The Vikings need wide receiver help in the worst way. Rice has the size, 6 foot 4 inches, speed, hands, yada, yada, yada. Although I believe Rice will be a very good receiver for the Vikings, for this year, he will be adequate at best. He is a younger Marcus Robinson, hopefully without the injuries.

Third Pick: Marcus McCauley, CB. McCauley is big, very fast, (Ran a 4.39 40 yard) and a hard hitter. He also has the size, six foot one inches tall and weighing in at 203 pounds. With Smoot gone, he will immediately provide back up depth to the rookie Cedric Griffin. I see McCauley fitting in to the nickel back battling Edwards and Whitaker.

Fourth Pick: Brian Robison, DE. Robison has the speed and a good first move that a defensive end needs to be successful. With E. James coming off a season ending injury and Udeze not recording a single sack all season last year, Robison will be given the opportunity to push not only for playing time, but as a starter, or at least significant playing time. Great pick.

Fifth pick: Aundrae Allison, WR. Allison is another receiver selected by the Vikings intent to improve that position. They can’t get any worse, but Allison has the speed to keep defenders honest. Look to see him as a return specialist and in a receiver rotation of mostly unproven players. Allison makes the team.

Sixth Pick: Rufus Alexander, LB. Yes, we get Chad Greenway back, our first round pick from 2006, but we also lost Napoleon Harris, acquired in the Randy Moss trade. Alexander led Oklahoma in tackles the last two seasons and is very consistent. Was surprised he was selected in the 6th round, should have went a little lower, but the Vikings received great depth at linebacker with Alexander. I see plenty of special teams play for him and limited action on the field.

Seventh Pick: Tyler Thigpen, QB. I am worried when coach Childress starts talking up our 7th round QB pick from Coastal Carolina. Yes, I typed Coastal Carolina. A college that two years before didn’t field a football team. I see Thigpen as scout team fodder and he will be cut as the Vikings must go after a QB with experience of more than 5 starts total. I see Thigpen getting cut by the end of pre-season.

Eighth Pick: Chandler Williams, WR. Williams is yet another receiver selected by the Vikings. Williams has exceptional speed and should find a spot on special teams as a returner and flyer. Williams runs excellent pass routes which is a bonus in the Vikings offense.

I think the Vikings did an excellent job in selecting this year. Peterson is the 2007 draft steal of the draft. I believe he will become a dominant force in the NFL and break all Viking RB records. A sure starter. The same for Rice and Robison.
