Don Banks reports for SI:
The Vikings could go a lot of different ways with their first of two first-round picks, but finding a big-play receiving threat to replace Randy Moss still seems the most logical place to start. Believe it or not, despite the team’s depth at running back, Texas’ Cedric Benson is also in the mix.
What is in the water at Winter Park? I know Mike Tice is no genius, but considering that he’s got FOUR solid running backs that he only uses 15 times a game against some of the worst run defenses in the league, why would you even THINK about drafting a running back. I don’t care if he’s the love child of Barry Sanders and Earl Cambell, for the love of Bud Grant, get another wide receiver!
This has to be a smoke screen. It just has to.
