Baker Mayfield to the Panthers

Baker is simply not a top 16 qb in the league=top half. A team needs one to have a punchers chance at winning a SB. Colts could've traded for Baker easily but passed. Matt Ryan was the better choice based on leadership and durability. Matt is also a top half of the league qb still. Baker is immature and still has a lot to prove.

It's almost unbelievable. No other team would give up more for Mayfield? Is he injured? Has he been in trouble with the law? It is surprising that Cleveland gave up on him so soon. 

 

I would have given up a better pick for him to replace Kirk Cousins. 

Well I had been meaning to ask you what your thoughts were on Kirk Cousins extension, but I guess this post says it all.

 

Replace Cousins with Mayfield? Wow.

 

To answer your questions above. Yeah he has been dealing with injuries, he has been in trouble with the law(see Oklahoma incident) and his team(Browns) said they were looking to get an adult in the QB room(something to that effect)

 

Cousins is probably going to have the best year of his career this season.

 

Nobody wanted Mayfield, Panthers just took a flyer on  him for essentially nothing.

 

Seattle was willing to just roll with Drew Lock.

I would definitely take Kirk Cousins over Mayfield, I would take Cousins over Tannehill or Wentz as well, Cousins makes my top 16 going into this year. Had we had Cousins last season we would've made the playoffs IMO. Is Cousins a top 10 QB, NO, but I have him in the above average to good category = top half of the league. When he had guys like Diggs and Rudolph, the Vikings beat the Saints in the playoffs at New Orleans.

We were all expecting the Cousins extension. It was necessary to free up cap space. We have had to do this the last couple of years. He has the Vikes wrapped around his finger. It was a bad contract. I was a big fan of GM Rick Spielman but the Cousins acquisition led to his downfall.

 

I did not say Mayfield was better. But he is younger, less expensive and he plays like he wants to win. It is easier to get rid of less expensive players who are not helping a team win. We are not winning anything with Cousins and he is not bad enough to help us get the #1 pick.

 

I have been a fan for 30 years, but the highest we have picked during that time was 4th. I want to draft a QB in the top 3 picks in the draft.

The Vikings have a had a ton lf picks the last few years. More than enough capital to move up. I know it wouldn't make much sense with Cousins still in place. Drafting a QB in the top 3 doesn't guarantee anything though.

 

I was hoping during my absence you had started to come around towards Cousins, especially after little mini extension and support from new HC. Respect your conviction though when it comes to Cousins. Still don't agree, but that's ok. 

 

I do think with Zimmer gone, this year will be a good one for the Vikings.

    • My bad. Wrong prospect. I think I might be reading to many scouting reports and starting to mix information lol.   Keon Coleman went to Michigan St and wasn't spectacular there vs this last season.   Yeah its all opinion. To each their own. I agree that it won't be WR in the first unless Nabers or Odunze fall. BPA even at a position of need will point to a defensive prospect IMO.
    • I like the idea of addressing skill positions in free agency and doubling down on DE/DT if the value is there. Verse and Jenkins being who I like the most. 
    • Ever since that LSU championship team, I kind of have been a fan of the reverse theory - when you have another dominant receiver on your team, it's even more impressive if you manage to stack up such insane production. Chase and Jefferson were amazing together and at the time everybody thought Jefferson is benefiting from Chase, but the reality is... there is only one ball. And if it goes to one player at disproportionately high volume, commanding huge portion of the remaining volume is actually a huge positive. It shows that even if you are not the 1st option on this particular team, you are able to accumulate big numbers and there is possibly some hidden potential to be a no. 1 receiver. Kind of like Jefferson has been able to prove in the league. Kind of like Olave has been able to do, too.    Big production at high level, combined with high level traits is like catnip for me, when we talk about receivers, and the presence of another big time receiver on the team is not really something that will dissuade me from selecting that player. If anything, I feel like there is some unexplored value there. 
    • Walker might be the answer for us in round 2 if we go DE or CB in round 1
    • If he has a good week at the Combine, he'll start getting a lot more top 20 buzz. I agree that he could be the 4th WR this year. As for how much he benefited from playing with Nabers, there's no question that's a boost for him, but it's probably a two way street. And the stat sheet isn't what makes him attractive. I see speed, size, ability to separate, big catch ability, hands, toughness, explosiveness, and a lot of upside as a route runner/technician.    What do you mean by the bolded? He played all three years at LSU, and never played against Michigan State. What's the connection there?   Everyone will have their own ideas and opinions. It's not hard for me to see him as a good option at #15, but it's my opinion that we're not drafting a WR in the first round anyway.
