& like I said, if Patterson would have gone at 24, the Vikings would have used 25 to pick Hopkins & tried to trade back into the first for Xavier Rhodes later.
What it looks like is that the Vikings had Shariff Flloyd and Xavier Rhodes way ahead of any receiver left on board at the time they took their first pick.
That was why they took those two, right?
Then they traded up to grab a receiver (Patterson), that's a fact right?
Who do you think they have higher on their board?
Hopkins or Patterson?
Let's say they have Patterson (and Hopkins might be the third, the fourth or fifth receiver on their board, whatever.)
Aren't they concerned that the Texans may take Patterson?
