    This scenario recently report by PFT.com. BTW, I realize now why this site has so much Vikings info - it's because the founder is a stinkin' Vikings fan. For awhile, it was turning into a Vikings website. Until we see how A.J. Hawk and D. Ferguson turn out, it's hard to say how this scenario would have panned out.

    From PFT:

    MARIO WOULD HAVE FALLEN TO FOURTH

    Another intriguing nugget on which we recently stumbled was that defensive end Mario Williams expected in the days prior to the draft to be taken not by the Saints at No. 2, but by the Jets at No. 4.

    This expectation gave Williams an even greater incentive to ink a deal with the Texans to become the first overall pick.

    Most assumed that Williams would be drafted by the Saints at No. 2, if the Texans took Bush at No. 1. But we're now told that in the days prior to the draft, the Saints opted to focus on Hawk instead of Williams.

    So if the Texans had stayed with Bush, Hawk would have gone No. 2 to the Saints, Vince Young would have been taken at No. 3 by the Titans, Williams would have gone to the Jets at No. 4, and the Packers likely would have selected tackle D'Brickashaw Ferguson at No. 5.

    The Jets, we heard, would have tried to develop Williams into a Richard Seymour-type fixture in their new 3-4 scheme.

    Unless DBrick turns into Orlando Pace or Jon Ogden, I would rather have a hard-nosed playmaker at LB who can be an instant leader and cornerstone of our D, which keeps getting better and better.

    Just shows that there was a lot of talent in the top 5 players of this draft. So much that the easy #1 pick of Bush fell to #2 and last year's #1 pick of Lienart fell to #10. Good draft to have the #5 pick and gather 12 selections overall.

    Hawk was arguably the best defensive player in the draft. He should help our defense to be strong for a long time. Every great defense in the NFL has a good LB corps.

    I think if this scenario played out TT would have tried to trade down to someone that wanted D'Brick.
