With the Vikings nearing their 15 minutes of draft day fame, they are keeping surprisingly mum about…
NFL Draft Preview
WR Andre Johnson: Johnson is the prototypical NFL receiver -- right now. Already being compared to former UM great Michael Irvin, Johnson has the speed and size of a pro with great hands to boot. As crazy as it sounds his talents were underused at UM due to an abundance of offensive talent. But Johnson is special and will make some general manager look very smart -- and happy. Would make a perfect match in Detroit (Joey Harrington) or Houston (David Carr).
DT William Joseph: Very strong player whose work ethic has come into question. Joseph's stock dropped during the season, but his combination of speed and size could make him a steal in the mid-to-late first round.
DE Jerome McDougle: Has impressed NFL personnel to the point that he could sneak into the first round easily.
DE Jamaal Green: Viewed small to play at defensive end in the pros but has proven he could handle the linebacker position. Another standout athlete coming out of Coral Gables that should find his way onto a roster somewhere.
DE Matt Walters: Smart player that isn't as gifted athletically as some of his former teammates but who should get a call in the third or fourth round.
DE Andrew Williams: Word is Williams won't be a DE in the pros and will instead be moved to LB. Wherever he ends up playing this kid could turn into a great one. Doesn't get cheated too many times and is always in good position to make a play. Could be one of those sleepers.
C Brett Romberg: Has made believers out of several teams with the same desire and charisma that he always displayed at Miami. Another of those players that isn't getting a lot of attention but is quietly moving up the charts. Looks like a solid third-rounder.
QB Ken Dorsey: Did well in the NFL combine but there are persisting concerns about his arm strength and overall size. As of this point Dorsey looks no better than a fifth or sixth round selection.
Others that could hear their name called are DE Cornelius Green, OL Sherko Haji-Rasouli, WR Ethnic Sands, DB James Scott and K Todd Sievers.
