  8. Bills –  Bryan Bulaga, OT, Iowa
  9. Titans –  Joe Haden, CB, Florida
  10. Seahawks –  Sam Bradford, QB, Oklahoma
  11. Niners –  Ryan Mallett, QB, Arkansas
  12. Texans –  Donovan Warren, CB, Michigan

  27. Cardinals –  Terrence Cody, NT, Alabama
  28. Chargers –  Dan Williams, NT, Tennessee
  29. Bengals –  Ras-I Dowling, CB/S, Virginia
  30. Saints –  Jahvid Best, RB, California
  31. Colts –  Brandon Ghee, CB, Wake Forest
  32. Vikings –  Tony Pike, QB, Cincinatti


33.  Bucs –  Greg Hardy, DE, Ole Miss

34.  Rams –  Taylor Mays, S, USC

35.  Browns –  Jermaine Gresham, TE, Oklahoma

36.  Lions –  Sean Weatherspoon, OLB, Missouri

37.  Redskins –  Jonathan Dwyer, RB, Georgia Tech

38.  Chiefs –  Brandon LaFell, WR, LSU

39.  Raiders –  Carlos Dunlap, DE, Florida

40.  Bills –  Brandon Spikes, ILB, Florida

41.  Patriots –  Mike Iupati, G, Idaho

42.  Seahawks –  Trevard Lindley, CB, Kentucky

43.  Niners –  Everson Griffen, DE, USC

44.  Texans –  Joseph Barksdale, OT, LSU

45.  Bucs –  Golden Tate, WR, Notre Dame

46.  Panthers –  Jevon Snead, QB, Ole Miss

47.  Steelers –  Jason Fox, OT, Miami

48.  Jets –  Kareem Jackson, CB, Alabama

49.  Dolphins –  Vince Oghobaase, DT, Duke

50.  Ravens –  Patrick Robinson, CB, Florida State

51.  Chiefs –  Jeremy Beal, DE, Oklahoma

52.  Giants –  Nate Allen, FS, South Florida

53.  Patriots –  Von Miller, OLB, Texas A&M

54.  Patriots –  Arrelious Benn, WR, Illinois

55.  Eagles –  Trent Williams, OT, Oklahoma

56.  Packers –  Mitch Petrus, G, Arkansas

57.  Broncos –  Sergio Kindle, OLB, Texas

58.  Cowboys –  Greg Romeus, DE, Pittsburgh

59.  Cardinals –  Selvish Capers, OT, West Virginia

60.  Chargers –  Jared Odrick, DE, Penn State

61.  Bengals –  Brian Price, DT, UCLA

62.  Saints –  Marvin Austin, DT, North Carolina

63.  Colts –  Ricky Sapp, DE/OLB, Clemson

64.  Vikings –  Reshad Jones, FS/SS, Georgia

So I decided to only give analysis on the Vikings’ picks this time around.

Tony Pike is having a dream season and his stock will never be higher, meaning he’s almost a sure thing to declare for the draft.  While his arm strength will keep him from getting drafted too early, his intelligence and accuracy gives him enough potential to be worth a late first rounder.

Reshad Jones has a big frame for a safety and, unlike the Vikings current safeties, knows how to tackle.  He also has decent speed and coverage skills.  Jones would be value pick at this point in the draft as well.

    Where is Danario Alexander, the arguably best wide reciever this year? He has the most yards of any other wide reciever, amongst his innumerable other accomplishments this year, yet has been unexplainably cast aside, as he plays for a 8-4 Mizzou… He is an outstanding wide reciever, who, despite not catching a chase daniel pass (as he ascended to the NFL, whom has treated him and Graham Harell unfairly) has eclipsed the greatness of the previous season featuring Jeremy Maclin! This must be an injustice..

    Dude, Tony Pike’s a senior. I’m pretty sure he’s going to ‘declare’ for the draft.
