    I asked about word count yesterday, and this is the reply I got: "Quotes count, but all non-breaking news needs to be 300+ words." Sorry for the confusion! Thanks :)

    Brian, nice article on the Vikings needs. I would love for them to trade up a few spots if Jenkins starts to fall. I don't know that I would trade up for Gilmore or Harrison Smith though, I think their value is pretty much right around where we are picking. Tough call for Spielman, if those guys are all gone, you'd have to think that Sanu, Randle or Jeffrey??? might be there and would be pretty enticing. (I don't know what the hell to make of Jeffrey at this point.)
    Keep up the good work!
