Vikings “Love” Chris Cook

As we mentioned today, the Vikings curiously opted to work out Virginia cornerback Chris Cook on an individual basis today despite the fact that they usually work out prospect in a group format.  The group workout is scheduled for April 6th and 7th.

According to Wes Bunting of the National Football Post, the Vikings “love” Cook and could very well make him their first choice in April’s draft.

I find it hard to believe that the Vikings would tip their hand so early in the process, so it could very well be a smokescreen.

Then again, a big cornerback with sure tackling abilities and the ability to play safety could be just what the doctor ordered for this defense.

    I will stand by my thoughts. Don’t believe anything you hear at this time of year. Nobody has a 1st round grade on him. Can you say “SMOKESCREEN!”. If McCourty, and Kareem Jackson are still there it would be hard to believe the Vikes would draft Cook in the first round IMHO. I would buy trading down to the top third of the second round however.

      Norse, I was glad too, If he was so great, Why would the Rams and then the Falcons (Just 1 year) let him go???

    I can’t picture Childress and Company showing their hands…

    I do remember Tice showing his hand wanting DT Ryan Sims and Dallas and K.C. switching spots so K.C. could get him…

    PC,

    That was Tice though. He had an IQ of a tree. I just look back over the past few years. The Vikes have drafted just as good as anyone in the league under the “Triangle of Authority”. They never have tipped their hand under Spielman and I can’t seeing them doing it now.
