Rumors are flying on the 2014 NFL draft; who should the Vikings actually take?

A lot of Minnesota Viking fans have been hoping and wishing somehow the team can draft former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. While I do agree Minnesota needs to draft a quarterback in the NFL Draft, I just don’t think it needs to be in the first round. If I was Vikings General Manager Rick Spelman, I would address the defense first before drafting a quarterback. The...

Minnesota Vikings sign CB Captain Munnerlyn

The undersized Captain Munnerlyn (5-8 186) has been a late bloomer in his career, after struggling mightily early in his career after getting drafted in the 7th round in 2009. Very similar to the way the similarly sized Tim Jennings developed, Munnerlyn has emerged as an above average cornerback in the NFL. He had a solid 2012 year and the Panthers wisely brought him back on a cheap...
