With the 22nd Pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, the Vikings Select...

Since you now have to pay ESPN to see Mel Kiper's mock draft, I decided to what other "so called experts" had to say about the Vikings 1st round pick:

ESPN.com bloggers: Eben Britton, T Arizona

NFL.com Experts
Charles Davis: Percy Harvin, WR Florida
Steve Wyche: Harvin
Jamie Dukes: Jeremy Maclin, WR Missouri
Pat Kirwin: Britton

CBSsports.com
Rob Rang: Britton
Chad Reuter: Vontae Davis, CB Illinois
Michael Lombardi: Brian Cushing, LB USC
Pete Prisco: Darrius Heyward-Bey, WR Maryland
Clark Judge: Michael Oher, T Ole Miss

FOXsports.com: Britton

NBCsports.com:
Britton

My guess is the Vikings will select a tackle (Britton) because that's boring and boring seems to be the theme of the Brad Childress era. I think there's an outside shot they'll take Kansas St. QB Josh Freeman and my dark horse (OK, dream) is a trade for Anquan Boldin.

I'd love to see them trade for Boldin as well. He'd have the biggest immediate impact. But I'm not sure I'd give up a 1st and 3rd round pick for him. If they can get him for the first round pick, they should do it.
