The Vikings said they might take a QB in round 1. I would be very surprised to see Quinn still on the board following the Texans and Vikings picks.

They have Marshall Lynch going first ahead of Adrian Peterson? I'm not sure about that, and not everything falls into place the way they put it, filling what they think is the team major need. Alan Branch at #3 to Cleveland when Cleveland really needs a running back is a head scratcher.

Most QBs are a tool of whomever calls the plays. E.G. Rex's plays were called by Ron Turner. Peyton calls his own plays, (one of a very few). We have enough QBs on the team, and we need to see if Cam can make them work. I would select Ginn, as he is very fast and can catch the ball, and return the ball. If it doesn't work out, try to get Colt Brennan next year, he kind of reminds me of Marino, except way more mobile. JMHO

Cleveland needs a NG too. Probably just as much as they need a RB, and if Branch has amazing workouts, the pick doesn't seem unlikely. Irons or Bush should be around in round 2 for them to pick(or Hunt or Pittman in the 3rd).

Almost nothing about Brennan to me screams Marino, except his attitude and fire. :confused:

And we don't have enough QBs on this roster. We have one who is likely gone in the coming weeks (Joey) and one who I hope will have recovered completely from injury to regain his old form (Culpepper). That's 2 QBs right now, and only one who plans to factor into the teams plans for even the immediate future.

I don't know which is more surprising, that he had Jay Moore in the 1st round, or Landry dropping to 26. It has to be Landry dropping so far, especially behind Merriweather. Landry is top ten talent for sure.

Vikings | Childress leaves door open for rookie QB
Fri, 9 Feb 2007 08:42:40 -0800
<A href="http://www.kffl.com/link/195">Kevin Seifert, of the Minnesota Star-Tribune, reports Minnesota Vikings (http://www.kffl.com/team/23/nfl) head coach Brad Childress (http://www.kffl.com/player/8309/nfl) retracted an earlier comment that suggested the club would not invest a first-round draft choice on a quarterback in this year's NFL Draft (http://www.kffl.com/link/159).

But i think they will look at the wr position

and if he does, he's not getting past Houston, or Minnesota. Whatever Brad Childress says in public is of absolutely no consequence. If they said they weren't going to draft a quarterback I'd be convinced they were going to draft one. They have nothing remotely like a franchise QB in Minnesota, and if you don't have one, you don't have anything. If Houston trades Carr, they need a body at the position, and a good, young promising one. Kubiak comes out of that Bronco system that views every part as interchangeable, except the quarterback.

I've seen a few mock drafts that have the Browns taking Adrian Peterson and I just don't get it? Peterson has major injury concerns, and a quality running back can be acquired just about anywhere in the draft. Maurice Jones-Drew was a second-round pick. Frank Gore was a third-round pick. Running back is usually one of the last pieces a team acquires before their window to contend opens. The Browns aren't anywhere near contention--they have a dreadful offensive line, poor quarterback play, and erratic skill position players. To say nothing of the defensive woes. If any franchise is snake bit, it is the Browns--the severity of injuries their draft picks and expensive free agent acquisitions have suffered is almost bizarre. It's been an uninterrupted parade of headcases and bad injuries. The Browns didn't fire Crennel this year, because they have every intention of hiring Bill Cowher next year.

Aside from Peterson having major injury concerns, and the Bill Cowher comment, this is a great analysis of the Browns. That's why they can go anywhere on draft day, whether Branch, Thomas, Quinn, whomever.

The possibility of Brady Quinn falling is there. Minnesota, Houston, Oakland, and Cleveland seem like the best possibilities for drafting a QB. Minnesota has other gaps to fill--pass rushing DE, playmaking WR, and DB help. Houston could sign Jake Plummer, and Oakland could trade for a QB and draft Calvin Johnson. Cleveland has Charlie Frye, but is that there guy?

Alot of things could happen. I think we will be prepared to select Quinn if he drops. There are so many wholes in that mock draft. No way Lynch is selected ahead of Peterson, or Landry drops that far, or Joe Thomas drops to #5. The Bucs, Browns, and Lions would all love to get their hands on a LT like Thomas. Again, anything could happen. I'll be interested to see the mock's after the combine.

First of all, all these mocks picking Quinn for the Phins is telling me there is no way in the world it's going to happen. I would love, LOVE Brady Quinn at 9, but anyone remember last year around this time? A plethora of mocks had Jay Cutler going 16 to Miami. This is starting to remind me of then.

Second of all, IMO, this is the worst mock draft I've ever seen. Mind you, this far away, any mock is plausible.

If you don't have a quarterback, and there is a "franchise" prospect in the draft available to you, you don't have any other needs. Although I could see a situation where Cleveland takes Thomas, you cannot pass up a franchise qb prospect for any other player as a general rule. If Quinn is there when Cleveland, Houston, or Minnesota drafts, he's coming off the board. I cannot imagine a scenario where a quarterback needy team passes on Quinn. Drafting a quarterback helps take the heat off of a general manager that might be on shaky ground, even if the guy can't play, he'll still get a few years to prove it, and right now, GM Phil Savage, envisioned as a savior two years ago, is taking some flak in Cleveland. I can see scenarios where the Fins, Vikings, Texans, or maybe a couple teams lower in the draft who need a quarterback could try to jump ahead of Houston if Quinn is still available. The real wildcard is Detroit, everyone says they won't take a quarterback, but they should. I just don't see any possibility of Quinn making it to us.

While it is possible the Vikings may draft a QB with their 1st round pick, it's also very possible this is a smokescreen to make teams consider trading up with them.

That seems like a smokescreen. They have Tavaris Jackson, why spend a high pick on a QB after you already did so the previous year?

Why 1st round on QB in 2007 too, after doing so the previous year? :wink:

While fans have perceived brady quinn's value dropping, i can guarantee (ok, i can't technically guarantee it... but you get what I'm saying) gms and scouts don't agree.

He is smart, makes good decisions, manages games well, and has the athleticism, arm, and vision to make for a good pro qb. He wasn't surrounded with talent, but turned notre dame into a title contender. He's been coached by charlie weiss, and is a great leader. He is mature. He has no off-the-field issues. No injury issues. He would be a role-model and an outstanding citizen (think this doesn't matter? Ask cincy :)

IF brady slid to us at nine I would be some combination of shocked and ecstatic. The only knock on him is that he couldn't carry notre dame past some of the very best programs in the country. Put peyton at the helm in oakland and see if he can take down the pats. Brady quinn is getting a lot of flak for jamarcus russel and a far superior LSU program dominating notre dame in one, albeit an important one, game. If this causes him to slide... great!! Their loss is our gain. I would still be shocked. IMO, Brady Quinn should be oakland's pick, but I don't think he will be :)

At lot of people probably didn't see the possibility of Cutler and Leinart making it past the raiders and lions last year. I personally don't see Quinn sliding all the way to us, but it is certainly possible.

Exactly, i was just going to say that. MIN has Jackson, they wont draft another QB, especially with their first pick so i dont think anyone has to worry about them taking a QB first.
