With The 26th Pick In The 2008 MHR Community Mock Draft...

WE HAVE A TRADE!!!

 

The Jacksonville Jaguars, represented by MHR Favorite Claaaaas has made a trade with Jon Tollerud and the Minnesota Vikings. The details are below --

Minnesota Gets - #26 Overall

Jacksonville Gets - #47, #113, #142 and #173

Claaaaas breaks it down this way - Our board was hit hard by the last couple of picks, so i don't see value enough among the currently available players. Receivers has to be extremely good for us to take him as we have invested a lot of money on the position in reloadingseason (Williamson, Porter). I don't see any pass rusher-value or corner value(Merling's injury-problems scare us a bit). DT is also a need (departure of Stroud), but i have 3 on my board, and at least one of the three will be available when we pick again.

With the 26th Pick, the Minnesota Vikings and Jon Tollerud select....

KENNY PHILLIPS, S - MIAMI Vikings' GM - Jon Tollerud -- The Minnesota Vikings were willing to take this chance to trade up and grab a well rounded player. We have Darren Sharper and Williams Starting at safety with two young guys here but Sharper is not getting any younger and the depth we have here is just that. Depth! We Select Kenny Phillips and will start from day one prepping him to take the place of Sharper when he retires in the next few seasons. You may criticize our trade of a handful of picks to move up but we have three real areas of concern, Safety, Defensive End and Quarterback. Addressing #1 (DE) earlier we now fix our #2 (Safety) and can focus on depth because we signed Frerotte and thus secured our belief in Tarvaris Jackson for at least one more season.
