    Xavier Rhodes did a great job against Brandon Marshall in our last meeting with the Bears,so I think Zimmer is happy to go with Xavier,Captain Munnerlyn and whoever steps up to claim the 3rd CB spot.I was happy with the Barr selection,we haven't had a great edge rushing LB in Minny for years.Also,by putting more pressure on opposing QBs will help the secondary.I do agree with you that adding another CB would be a prudent move.

    Barr is a DE in a 4-3. Will probably be a LEO as a rookie and then come into his 2nd camp 265-270 ( which wont be any problem for him) If I was a Vikings fan I would havr murdered an entire race og human beings if they picked Gilbert over Barr

    Vikings basicly replaced and old Jared Allen with young Demarcus Ware. Long term I wouldnt be surprised one bit if Barr winds up better then Clowney and Mack. He has there level talent, only 2 years on D killed his chances to be tiered the same place on draft day

    Vikings win the first round hands down
