Pompei has the Vikings taking TE Heath Miller with the 18th pick. Most people have Miller ranked as the top Tight End in the draft but even so, this is an odd choice, considering the Vikings resigned Jermaine Wiggins, have Jim Kleinsasser coming back from injury, and have the six foot eight soft-handed TE Richard Angulo, also coming back from injury, waiting in the wings.

Pioneer Press‘ Predictions

The Pioneer Press passes on the Mock Draft, but their writers do predict who the Vikings will take in the first round:

Sean Jenson: Jenson would take Mike Williams even if Braylon Edwards were available. If Williams were gone, Jenson would take Troy Williamson. Jenson leans toward DE Erasmus James with the 18th pick.

Tom Powers: Powers argues the Vikings should take Georgia LB Odell Thurman to replace Randy Moss as the team’s resident troublemaker.

Bob Sansevere: Sansevere thinks the Vikes will take Troy Williamson with the 7th pick but he thinks they should take Mike Williams.

Don Seeholzer: Seeholzer says the Vikings should take Mike Williams. Period.
