This is way too much value, unless I'm missing something here.
I like the thinking and trading out of 1-1; and I like the pick at #8 of Watkins. But not enough to take him. My draft board through round 3 would be defense, with the exception of one OL'man.
But this is just person preference. The main point of agreement is trading down for extra picks and drafting the players needed to move our team into the new schemes.
Suggest not getting caught up too much in the point thing. Vikings #1 need is QB and at #8 the names are gone (I don't think Carr is a consideration for Minnesota). Quote from GM Spielman: "it's maybe the most difficult position to fill, but we're going to do everything and use every resource we can to try to get that corrected."
For a top rank QB you pay. A first and second round in 2015 is a 2nd and third this draft.
