    Where did they take him out to? Chuck E. Cheese? I like the singing mechanical bears.

    What's the point? He's not available at #12 regardless of whether he deserves a top 10 spot or not. Some team will reach within the top 8 spots to grab him. Vikings are wasting their time.

    It's not probable, but I guess it's possible that Gabbert could somehow fall to them.

    If I were Minnesota, though, I'd be more concerned with Cam Newton and Jake Locker, though.

    The Vikings have little chance of moving up in the draft top grab him. Besides, I have a feeling he is going to be another Andre Ware... great QB size, has the arm, can make all the throws, smart... but played in a spread offense. I don't want Newton either. Knowing my Vikings their QB pick will be Ralph Schmidlapp from the University of Dunk'n Donuts.

    Blaine Gabbert - He'll be off the board, but I think the fact he played in a gimmick offense, was constantly out of shape and he struggled with his accuracy, he will be a bust.

    Cam Newton - Cam has great size and athleticism to be a very effective collegiate quarterback, but like Dan LeFevour, will be downgraded for playing in a gimmick offense.

    Christian Ponder - This QB is a slightly better version of Tony Pike; his arm strength isn't very good, but he's a smart and accurate quarterback.

    Colin Kaepernick - He has nice size and athleticism, but Nevada's goofy offense hasn't prepared him for the pros at all.

    Jake Locker - This QB suffers from trademark inconsistency and poor accuracy. His passes are too high. He fumbles. His footwork is very poor. His decision-making isn't very good either.

    Ryan Mallett - His team may have a winning record and he put up good stats, but if you take a closer look, his accuracy is highly inconsistent, he has poor mechanics, and he struggles with mobility and has a hard time eluding pass rushers. Mallett is a bit of a statue in the pocket and doesn't create throwing lanes outside the tackle box when his receivers struggle to get open. Worst of all... he has character issues. The guy is a head case.

    I think the Vikings will be stuck with Mallet. *vomit*

    Just my .02 cents worth
