I don't want him covering anyone, just clobbering the fool coming over the middle. Cush as he did before injury and Skov can cover TEs if there happen to be two playing.

But like we've seen the last 2 seasons injuries happen and backups are thrust into a starting role. Even your backups should fit your defensive scheme. I just think the old days of 3-4 ILB's purely stuffing the run are long over. It's become a passing league and 3-4 ILB's are called upon for pass coverage quite often. Even Ray Lewis lost weight the last few years of his career so that he could gain speed and be useful in the pass coverage game because he realized the league was changing.

I don't see this. Switching #4 & #8 is about a 400 point difference in value. So receiving #40, at 500 points, is close, but still about 100 points over valued. The Texans would likely have to give up something extra. But what really throws me is the addition of Minnesota's first & second in 2015. 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.
