I thought Anthony Castonzo was the cream.

I still like Smith or Pouncey at pick #12. Favre got pounded last yeat. It was tragic. Both Smith and Pouncey offer more speed and athleticism along the line. Sullivan and Herrara are both injury-prone. I realize the Vikes are getting away from Childress' zone blocking. That will make any set of linemen better in itself. But the Vikings need a serious upgrade along the O-Line. Vikings should not reach for a QB. That would be a huge mistake.

I don't know about drafting a lineman at #12...I'd rather they trade down and pick up some bodies if the plan is to get a lineman anywhere in the first round. Maybe they could use one of those picks they get to draft Marcus Cannon out of TCU as a guard in one of the later rounds.

There is no cream in this year’s crop. Smith was a starter for two seasons at one of the half-dozen most high-profile football factories in the country, but nobody was saying anything about him 3 months ago. He hasn’t done much of anything since then either, because he’s been inured. Yet, somehow, he has become the #1 prospect. I’m not suggesting that he’s a lousy player. If he stays healthy and plays up to his potential, he could be a outstanding, but you can say the same thing about pretty much any player selected in the first 3 rounds.
