COACH CHRIS: If I Had My Way On Draft Day

If all was right with the world, and the draft fell the way Coach B wanted…… The Vikings would select at # 30….

1.       ROLANDO McCLAIN – Alas, the team would have to move up significantly to get him. But he’s the best MLB prospect in at least 5 years. He reminds me of Brian Urlacher. A great leader and a sideline to sideline terror. We still have E.J. Henderson (He’s awesome, but there is no guarantee he can return to any semblance of his former football self) and Jasper Brinkley (takes too many false steps and over-runs the play too often. Continuously fills the wrong gap. Is good against the run, but has little range and cannot cover.)

2.       Jimmy Clausen – Excellent prospect who can tutor under Favre for a year or two and would end the eternal quest for a legitimate future QB.

3.        Earl Thomas – Ball-hawking Safety/Corner who could end up being the best secondary prospect in the draft.

I would be very happy with:

1.       Joe Haden – CB

2.       Taylor Mays – SS

3.       Kyle Wilson – CB

4.       Devin Mcourty – CB

5.       Kareem Jackson – CB
