Mock Draft Really Wants the Vikings to Take Keenan Allen

I think this is the third straight week the mock draft has given the Vikings Keenan Allen. Josh Sanchez says:

The Vikings will be attempting to trade Percy Harvin, according to reports, so expect them to look for a dynamic wide receiver that has some added value in the return game. Allen would be that guy.

Receiver would be a target even if the Vikes don’t trade Percy Harvin. If they do trade Harvin, that just ramps up the urgency a little. Of course a Harvin trade would bring in an extra draft pick, probably a second, so that would give you the flexibility to not necessarily use your first pick on a receiver. Or you could try to trade up maybe.

Should the Vikings trade Harvin? Will they trade Harvin? It’s the all-consuming issue right now in Viking Nation. The draft seems like a distant thought right now.

    Harvin Gone. only player for player trade that I would try to make a jab at (wishful thinking on all vikings fans) would be harvin for fitz. most likely wouldnt happen but I would love to get a couple of draft picks. 2nd and 3rd. or 1st and 3rd.

    No way their gonna trade harvin already weak at wr this will hurt the team and set them back 2more yrs give him Wut he deserves money like AP these guys are our offense foundation if they trade 12 then trade 28 too cuz were gonna SUCK pay 12 his money

    No matter who they get from a trade for Harvin, they will not get the production they will loose. The franchise just started to improve and this will set them back years. Adrian, Jared, Antoine, Williams, etc. are not getting younger and have no time for rebuilding. Do the franchise a favor and get a QB, then we can compete. Trading your best players are not the answer. Their way is not working, they have won nothing in 52 years!!!!!
