Dude. Stick with hockey. AJ played one year in San Fran. They didn't even make the playoffs that year.

He was saying he got thrown out of a game maybe like two times his entire career. He was as calm as a dead man for sure. Most mellow dude. That can work wonders for some clubs and some players.

He knew how to win with not the best teams though. Didn't hurt having Kirby come through during his time though and some other legends (Morris, Hrbek, Gaetti, Viola...) But their teams were never terribly impressive.

I know, it's just a guy who's analyzing based on need and his projection of talent and impact.

So, who else in convinced we are going to take Claiborne?

It could just be Spielman working the market, but he's got me convinced!

Thought it was a smokescreen at first, but I feel like they're telling the truth now. Trading back to TB's 5 slot is definitely their #1 choice. TB trades up to take Richardson, then Minnesota can be guaranteed Kalil or Claiborne at #5.

From what I've been reading the last couple days I'm thinking Claiborne or Gilmore might actually be a smarter move. But that OL still needs a lot of help at tackle AND guard.

I still think we need to get a WR in the first three rounds. Simpson is suspended(length?) and we never know when Percy's migraines will act up. Also I'd love to swap with TB and still get one of, Blackmon, Claiborne, or Kalil. And pick up a few extra picks.

Vikings trade their #3 overall to the Browns for their #4 overall, a 3rd rounder and one more pick that no one seems to know what it is.

I heard a fourth, fifth and seventh..

I like the move, tbh. We don't need a RB, so if we can get some return to move down one spot, all while still getting the player we want...not bad

Could still move down again. Some team might want Blackmon that much. I think Claiborne is too high up on Fraizer's list to risk him passing Tampa.. Because he won't. I have a feeling that Fraizer really doesn't want Kalil, but the other coaches/staff do.

Confirmed now that the trade was for their 4th overall, a 4th, 5th and 7th.

#3 for #4, 118, 139 & 211 ain't too shabby.

Un-frickin-believable first period at MSG. The Minnesota boys Sauer, McDonagh, Bickel and Stepan are looking to rep our state from here on out. They are my horse, although I love Craig Anderson as a goalie. Dang is he good and American to boot!

The Browns had 13 picks. Had to get rid of them somehow! Good deal for Vikes though.

i thought they did....Hmmm 2003...wait...2004 >.>

I got confused with the White Sox. My memory isn't what it used to be. 2004 is so long ago.

Yeah I'm sticking with football and hockey. Baseball and basketball sucks...

They have so many holes, should they use the extra picks to try move their existing picks higher, or just select more players?

Probably Stephen Hill or Janoris Jenkins.. But the Bengals might end up taking Jenkins. Seems to fit their MO.
