Maurkice Pouncey. He has had mixed reviews on how high he may be going. He is predicted to be a mid to low 1st round selection.
With all the "expert" mockers out in the blogosphere voicing their professional opinion, that the Vikes should go the DB route.Why would the Vikes go this route? The aging Antonie Winfield and Cedric Griffin coming off of major ACL surgery. The player they have is: Devin McCourty, CB, Rutgers. He is being compared to Ronde Barber, Buccaneers.McCourty has a great combo of speed and physical play. The only dis again him was he may be taken advantage of by the Brandon Marchalls of the league(big and physical receivers). He is very competitive and durable DB(something that the Vikes need) a leader on the field and has a nose for the ball.
Another prospect that is being thrown around in late 1st round is Brian Price, DT UCLA. With the aging Phat Pat Williams,having durability issues the past 2 seasons and being bogged down with injures. Price has the ability to explode off the ball and battle til the whistle blows.The Vikes do not NEED a DT, but could gain good experience being a sub behind the Williams Wall. He would fit right into the Vikes 4-3 defense.
One of these three players cold very well be holding a Vikings jersey Thursday night. It is really anyone's guess who the Chilly squad in going to be selecting. If I had to choose it would be Devin McCourty. The whole country will know later this week.
