With the twenty-second pick in the Canal Street Chronicles community mock draft, the Minnesota Vikings select...

Eben Britton, OT, Arizona

Looking at the Vikings, there are several areas of "depth" concern, however no major areas of "we need to take this player in first round." QB, OL, WR, DB are all needs. However, having acquired Sage "Rosencopter" Rosenfels from the Texans and having young players like Tyrell Johnson ready to step in at safety, and solid, albeit, average players at CB behind their probowler Winfield, OL and WR become their two top needs. With top receiving prospects such as Heyward-Bey and Britt available at this juncture, it was tempting. Furthermore, all the top C prospects were still available as well as 1st round tackle prospects Beatty and Britton. Considering the Vikings have Jonathan Sullivan ready to step in for Birk, OT is the obvious choice. If anyone has ever seen a Vikings game, you'd have seen what an abomination Ryan Cook was. The man cannot play. Period. Britton has the talent to play RT from day one and eventually move over to the left side when McKinnie is let go. Britton brings the ability to play both sides and a mean streak the Vikings line needs to go along with Hutchinson. Some of you may disagree saying that WR is a greater need, but they have solid starters in Rice and Berrian and there is a much larger market for offensive lineman than there is for WR's. It was a tough choice, but when it comes down to it, Britton makes the most sense.

The New England Patriots are now on the clock...
