ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. says Trae Waynes going No. 11 to Vikings 'makes a lot of sense'

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has in his latest mock draft the Vikings taking Michigan State cornerback Trae Waynes with the No. 11 pick in the first round of the NFL draft. It might take a lot to change his mind. “Needing a corner the way they do … at 11 at Minnesota makes a lot of sense now,’’ Kiper said Thursday on a conference call. The Vikings, who have an emerging star in Xavier Rhodes at right cornerback but are shaky on the other side, haven’t done a lot to beef up the position […] The post ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr....

Zimmer, again: 'We have no plans to trade Adrian'

Mike Zimmer, speaking at the NFL owners meetings this morning, reiterated the Vikings’ stance that they expect disgruntled running back Adrian Peterson to play for them this season.

Zimmer says deal with Terence Newman is close

Mike Zimmer said this morning at the NFL owners meetings that the Vikings are close to reaching a contract agreement with free-agent cornerback Terence Newman, one of Zimmer’s former players.

After Newman’s play dropped...

Tom Powers: Adrian Peterson dragging Vikings into Neverland

Tom Powers: Adrian Peterson dragging Vikings into Neverland

Good to see Adrian Peterson dressed up like Aladdin and sitting atop a camel during his 30th birthday celebration down there in Texas. He's got the whole Michael Jackson thing going on, and the camel really was impressive -- although my guess is he spent all day trying to find a unicorn to rent before settling for the Dromedary.
