WCG Mock Draft - The Minnesota Vikings Select...


Darrius Heyward-Bey
Wide Receiver

ANALYSIS: I don’t like the Vikings. At all. But since I was chosen for this pick, here I am. If I was truly in charge of the Vikings’ draft, there are numerous ways to sabotage that franchise. For example, if Josh Freeman was still on the board, that’s my automatic #1 pick. If I wanted to select someone who would have the same intellectual capacity as half of their team, Percy Harvin’s my guy. But alas, I have to do this with some form of logic, so Darrius Heyward-Bey is my selection. 

Why DHB? Well, the three logical positions the Vikings need are QB (No, Sage and T-Jack are not legitimate answers), WR to start opposite Berrian, and OT. I thought long and hard about Eben Britton, but DHB makes sense.  

Yes, I realize that DHB has the glamorous opportunity to be the next Troy Williamson. However, can you imagine a Vikings offense with ____ (insert QB here), Berrian, DHB, and AP? Dangerous, to say the least. They have the #25 ranked passing offense, and having DHB and Berrian would force defenses to stop stacking the line against AP.
