As much as I would love this to happen, I'm not going to get my hopes up. Thats a lot to give up to move to No. 2. There are going to be good receivers available at both spots they are picking at in round 1 and I bet they will gladly take whoever is there (Williams, Clayton (@18) and Williamson). I dont know who the jabroni is who ran with this story on Yahoo, but I'm really getting tired of these reporters messing with my emotions!!!!! :cry: :fire: :yell:

It seems like a lot but I mean do you not remember what the Giants gave up to San Diego just for Eli Manning? And Minnasota really needs Braylon to fill that gap that Randy left. Without a big reciever the Vikings are nearly hopeless for a chance to make a run for next season.

It's not any more then teams trade up with every year. Teams
fall in love with a guy and would rather have him then someone they think less of.

It all depends on how much in love they are with Braylon. I mean how much better is he than the other 3? (Williams, Williamson and Clayton)

There are big differences. Williams is big but slow, might be a TE or HB.
Clayton is small and more a over the middle, short passing game type. Williamson is more raw.

I wrote earlier in the week that people should expect no trade, it'll
be better for your mental health. If one happends, then be happy but don't expect one and be upset when one doesn't come through.

I agree. But when I see reports that we may be able to trade down and get more pickes I get excited. It's what we all REALLY want and NEED. Yet I would be just as happy taking Braylon at No. 2. More picks though equals more fun on draft day. It sucks that after picking No. 2 we have to wait 8-10 hrs. to pick again.

The waiting does stink but we've had lots of practice with WannSpiel
and their pick trading adventures.

I started to be like Spiel and Pornstache in not placing that high of a value on draft picks. Thank god we have a leader who values that again. Geez, the previous regime still makes me sick to my stomach.
