The Minnesota Vikings are living for the now.
It seems as though they want to win a Super Bowl with Brett Favre, and they'll worry about everything else afterwards.
If the Vikings do believe that Favre will return, they should have dealt one of their current backups in an effort to retain some of their value.
By next off season, it's likely that the interest level in Sage Rosenfels and Tavaris Jackson will be nil.
Further, their offensive and defensive lines, while very talented, are aging. If I'm the Vikings, my primary concern in this draft is to focus on the future of my offensive and defensive lines.
2.(33) Chris Cook, CB, Virginia. As the 30th overall selection is approaching, there are three very talented cornerbacks remaining on the board. Kyle Wilson, Patrick Robinson and Devin McCourty.
If I'm in the market for a cornerback, I would most certainly consider trading up in an effort to land one of those guys.
Instead, the Vikings traded down, forfeiting their opportunity to land one of the first-round quality corners. They then proceed to leave numerous highly talented offensive and defensive tackles on the board and select Chris Cook.
Chris Cook isn't a bad player, but he is a considerable step down from Wilson, McCourty and Robinson.
Bad planning and poor draft board management from the Vikings with their top selection in 2010.
2.(51) Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford: No problems with picking Gerhart here. With a little work on his pass catching ability, he'll be a natural replacement for Chester Taylor.
4.(100) Everson Griffen, DE, USC. While most of us spectators were surprised by the dramatic fall of Everson Griffen, the people who scout talent for a living had no problem passing him by numerous times.
Everson Griffen's tape is unbelievable, but it's obvious there are some serious concerns about his off-field behavior and work ethic.
Drafting a second-round talent in the fourth round is great value, but other teams who were desperately in need of pass rush help passed Griffen by, for some unknown, but obviously serious issues.
5.(161) Chris Degeare, OG, Wake Forest: I imagine this pick took a lot of teams by surprise. I wouldn't be shocked if some teams hadn't even heard of him.
Chris Degeare could be a great player, but drafting him in the fifth round was unnecessary.
The rest of their draft consists of developmental prospects, but it's unlikely any of them will develop into full-time starters.
5.(167) Nathan Triplett, LB, Minnesota
6.(199) Joe Webb, WR, UAB
7.(214) Mickey Shuler, TE, Penn St.
7.(237) Ryan D'Imporio, LB, Rutgers
