That is crazy!! That's a lot of money for the first round picks.

Patriots RAPED them. 4 picks?? For Cordarelle Patterson?

Nice receiver, but hardly worth a 2, a 3, a 4 and a 6...

We need to pay attention and follow suit a little. Ted, do some dealing and get us up to get an extra pick tomorrow. We don't have room for many rookies because of your ability to draft well, good time for better quality instead of quantity.

The only pick that would have made this better for me would be if they had taken Te'o.

....then again hearing Mayock say 3 times the Vikings would take him and be wrong repeatedly was pretty enjoyable.

Anyway, I keep hearing about how after the elite 10-15 or so players there was a big drop off but then little difference through the next round or two. I hope that is the case. Would be the worst timing to take three late first round picks.

Money just isn't an issue regarding the draft anymore. There's a rookie cap and it is team friendly.

First, they hit a homerun with Sharrif Floyd. He fell because of short arms. That's a motivator. This guy is going to destroy EDS and T.J. Lang. I'm not looking forward to watching that.

With that said, they gave up too much for Cordarrelle Patterson. This draft’s value is rounds two, three, and four. You can get so many good players, especially at wide receiver (Markus Wheaton) in those rounds.

Would you rather have Robert Woods & Jon Bostic or Patterson?

I’ll take Woods and Bostic, but obviously, Minnesota really valued as many as four players in this draft, if we assume their interest in Manti Te’o was legitimate. They got three of them, so Viking fans should be excited about that.

Pisses me off. They didn't have a 4th, 5th, and 6th round pick this year and just like that they find a dipshit team to hand them 4 picks, doubling their overall amount. Incredible.

Billacheat is a draft guru and I don't care what anyone says. He always finds a way to pull trades out every year. As far as the Vikes I actually thought they did very well for them selves. All they need now is Ponder to be able to throw to wide open receivers (which there will be) and they helped their defense. Good thing they don't have an elite qb or their offense would be very scary. I will go on record and say AP will break the rushing record this year. They now have a wr corp with Jennings and Rudolph and Patterson, and of course AP out of the backfield.

I don't see them being done trading just yet.

I will go on record saying I doubt Adrian Peterson barely tops 1,500 yards rushing this 2013 season.

I liked their first pick. Didn't hear much about their second and their third everyone says was a big reach.

Their first pick might've been the best pick in the draft (so far).

Rhodes, their second pick, was great value at 25. A lot of people had him as their nr. 2 CB, usually going somewhere in the top 20 picks. Not as amazing a pick as Floyd, but still, very good.

Lastly, where are you hearing that they reached for Patterson? I would've been fine with the Packers trading up for him when he fell past the Bengals. Patterson's raw and, for the Vikes sake, I hope they're not expecting him to be a big contributor this year, but he's the receiver with the most potential in the entire draft, imo.

That said, they gave up a lot to get him. Too much, most likely. He was, however, a very, very good value pick at 29.

The deal with Patterson: The Vikings essentially gave up a 3 and a 4 for him. They swapped their 2nd for the Pats' 1st. That's a wash. And they gave up one of their 3 7th rounders. Not going to miss that one, either. Not super happy about that pick, but it wasn't the huge draft clearing trade that everyone's making it out to be. They have 5 more picks, starting out again in round 4.

They addressed a serious need, and they moved on it. Not mad, but not super happy.

I'm starting to think he was worth the picks.

I'd rather take Paterson over both Woods and Bostic.
