With the 30th Pick in the 2010 Stampede Blue Community Mock Draft, the Minnesota Vikings select...

Maurkice Pouncey, G/C - Florida

Pick made by Dclark#44:

For the record, I think the Vikings would be fools to not at least try for one of the top 2 qb's in this year's draft. Farve or no Favre, they won't make the playoffs unless they address their biggest need. Their time is now, and Tarvaris Jackson and Sage Rosenfels should NOT be given keys to this Ferrari. A developmental project at qb is not the answer, either. The bust rate for 2nd round qb's is too high to gamble. Barring a qb, their second option should be to trade a first round pick for a 60 gallon drum of Stick'em and the gorrilla glue recipe... All Day, that's for you!

The Vikings really struggled to run the football last year. While center John Sullivan is still raw, right guard Anthony Herrera struggled in that department. Maurkice Pouncey coincidentally can play both positions. He'll be a great upgrade for Minnesota's interior. Pouncey can immediately bump Herrara and next year can challenge Sullivan for the right to snap to Tarvaris "Goal Line Jump Pass" Jackson.

If Pouncey is taken #30 by the Vikings, he would be the 1st G taken in the first round by the Vikings since 1998, when they selected Randall McDaniel #19 overall. He would also be the first Interior Lineman from Florida taken in the 1st round ever. That's very surprising to me. The last OL taken in the 1st round from Florida was in 2001 (Kenyatta Walker).
