    With the 33 pick of the Draft, the New Orleans Saints would like to present Brooks Reed DE from the University of Arizona. Brooks’ brings an unparalleled energy level and work ethic, which combined with his athletic ability, will greatly improve our defense. Reed not only displays the athletic ability to play multiple positions, but has demonstrated an array of pass rush moves and counters. His ability to create turnovers and tackle in the open field and a dimension that has been missing from our defense and his versatility fits with the hybrid scheme we will use to reclaim our championship in 2012.

    With the #36 pick in the 2011 nfl draft, the New Orleans Saints would like to present Martez Wilson, OLB from the University of Illinois. In addition to possessing outstanding football speed, Wilson has demonstrated a knack for rushing opposing quarterback. His ability to get into the backfield and put pressure on the ball carrier will complement the aggressive nature of our defense.

    With the 35th overall pick, the Vikings select WR Jonathan Baldwin, Pitt. The Vikings have a bit of a conundrum at their top WR position. Sidney Rice has said he is looking to test free agency and the Vikings have shown a history of taking players in the draft to replace others (Griffin gets hurt, Chester Taylor Leaves>Draft Cook/Gerhart, Want to replace Cook at ROT>Draft Loadholt, Losing Darren Sharper>Draft Tyrell Johnson, etc). With Rice potentially leaving, the Vikings find another WR in the 2nd round (like Rice) who is a tall, athletic receiver that uses his frame to box out defenders and go up for the ball (like Rice). In an ideal situation, Rice will be resigned and the Vikings can sport dual 6’4″+ WRs on the outside with Harvin in the slot and Shanko at TE, which is a lot of weaponry for any QB to work with.

    With the 43rd overall selection, the Vikings select FS Rahim Moore, UCLA. The Vikings have had several issues at the safety position, but a lot of them stem from not having a play maker at the position. After some film study of his last two season, we believe that Moore was misused this past season as an in-the-box safety while he had his best year playing in over the top coverage where he could use his instincts/athleticism to play against the pass. A statistical example of this is his jump from #8 on the team in tackles in 2009 with 48 ( a good number of tackles for a FS) to #3 on the team with 77 in 2010 (a decent number for a linebacker). In the Vikings Cover-2 defensive scheme, Moore would be able to stay in the back end of the defense in zone and use his best traits as a safety to make plays in the passing game.

    After starting the draft with 3 picks in the top 106 selections, the Vikings finish the 2nd round with 3 picks in the top 43 selections and walk away with 3 day one starters. A top QB was elusive for us, but the Vikings aren’t done yet and there is a good chance they will find a veteran once FA becomes a reality anyways.

    The Bengals had the 35th overall pick but had when it came time to pick, we were hoping for a 1st round guy to still be available. This wasn’t the case and we had an offer to trade back to the 60th pick and gain two 4th round draft picks. When our pick finally arrived. We narrowed our choices down to two players (Ryan Williams and Bruce Carter), both players were in our top 40 on our board. We decided that Bruce Carter held slightly more value because of the LB position really take a drop off after him. He would easily be a top 20 player if he didnt hurt himself in the last game of his UNC career. Carter can come in and take his time to rehab. We dont need him in 2011 and feel like we will gain an extra first round pick when Carter plays in 2012.

  6. Gentlemen,

    Having not selected a QB in the first round, the Panthers found it necessary to beef up our receiving corps, giving Jimmy Clausen some viable targets to throw too. With the uncertainity of Steve Smith’s return, the Panthers decided to go with a tall, strong, and sure handed receiver in Leoonard Hankerson. Getting him near the end of the second thrilled us, as we thought he would have been snatched up earlier on in the round. We were really impressed with his long reach, as the film we viewed showed him capable of making practically any catch thrown his way. He isn’t great at creating separation, but with his strength and catching ability, Hankerson has the ability to become an elite possession receiver in this game. Along with emerging youngsters David Gettis and Brandon Lafell, the Panthers now have a receiving corps full of potential. We need Hankerson to step up and become a starter on day one, which will surely help our team improve in what was our weakest part of our game last year.
