Not sure which Vikings draft tendency is more troubling: Reverse affirmative-action or taking players from college teams I loathe (University of Syphilis California and Notre Shame)

It's likely Dennard came off the board after the Senior Bowl. As you know the Viking coaches were involved in that game and apparently Dennard struggled in the cover two scheme. That said the Frazier regime hasn't found personnel who can play the Cover 2 so is it Dennard or the coaching?

 

PA is right...this year needs to be about Christian Ponder. If he can be Chad Pennington with more mobility we have to protect him. I love the Kahlil pick. Look at Patrick Peterson, drafted #5 overall (also out of LSU) last year: Peterson lit it up in the return game but was ranked among the worst starting corners in the league according to Pro Football Focus. Kahlil will likely be no less that good his rookie year and likely elite after that. We need to improve NOW in both youth and depth at CB and only a balanced approach will do that.

 

While I understand your frustration that the Vikes didn't address CB more in the draft the fact we took a safety (also a glaring need) in the 1st round and Robinson with our next pick means we took the secondary more serious than any other team this year in the NFL. Couple that with the signings of Bowman and Carr I feel we've made leaps and bounds after last year.
