Vladimir Ducasse To Visit

The word of scheduled visits of college prospects just keeps on coming.

The latest to add to the list is Massachusetts tackle Vladimir Ducasse.

At 6 foot 4 inches and 330 pounds, Ducasse has been able to play right tackle and guard during his college career.

He projects as a second or third round pick who possesses rare size and strength.  He is surprisingly agile and quick, which makes him a decent fit into the Vikings zone blocking scheme.  The big knock on Ducasse has been his tendency towards mental errors.

He would fill an obvious need for the Vikings since they lost Artis Hicks.  With Steve Hutchinson getting up there in age and Anthony Herrera coming off of a season in which he struggled, I don’t think anybody would complain if the Vikings drafted this big man.

    Yeah, he would be a good fit, however, a lot of the mocks I’ve seen lately have Iapati falling down sliding down in the first round for some reason which is surprising. Even a few have him sliding past the Vikes. If he’s there at #30, He would be a great fit. He’s mean and nasty and that would be a boost to the Vikes running game. Hutch is getting up there in age so he could be the heir apparent

    “Mental errors”?

    What exactly does that mean? Which type are we talking about here? These type:

    1) Forgets to block when his QB says “Hike”?
    2) Forgets to tie his shoes
    3) Forgets about practice?
    4) A Russian version of Todd Stussie? Off sides 12 times each game?
    5) Run blocks when he is suppose to be pass blocking?

    or like these:

    1) Smashes some jackass bouncer with a stop sigh during a night of drinking
    2) Schedules boat cruises on Lake Minnetonka
    3) Does the “happy dance” with skanks in stairwells at down town bars
    4) Fumbles 6 or 7 times during the big game?
    5) Throws a pic….you know.

    We need nasty, we need that bad… we don’t need stupid.

    AK… please tell me Boris isn’t a dope.
