    That's awful timing. I heard he had always wanted to go to LA.

    The Vikings have submitted pick No. 175 in this year's draft. And the winner is ... Georgia kicker Blair Walsh.
    For a team with as many needs as the Vikings have, this is the second head-scratcher of the day, following the fourth-round selection of fullback/tight end Rhett Ellison, a Southern Cal prospect who said he didn't expect to be drafted at all.
    Yes, to get Walsh, the Vikings are only using a sixth-round pick. And Walsh will provide some competition for veteran Ryan Longwell. But if Walsh doesn't make the team, it's not as if the Vikings can stash him on the practice squad.

    He was 20/25 inside 50
    Folk was 16/19 inside 50

    He was 6/10, with no field goals made longer than 40 yards away from the Metrodome.

    Both players missed one kick inside 40 yards last year.

    A dome kicker with stats comparable to Folk? No thanks.
