08:01 AM ET 03.21 | Leslie Frazier, in Missouri to watch Blaine Gabbert throw a football, was just as interested to sit down with the young man for dinner. Frazier acknowledges that what he heard in the evening was just as important as what he saw during the day. The Vikings are giving serious consideration to selecting a quarterback in next month's draft. Minnesota holds the 12th overall pick but there is a possibility they could try to trade up or perhaps even trade back and take a QB. Players of interest include Gabbert, Auburn's Cam Newton, Washington's Jake Locker, TCU's Andy Dalton and Arkansas' Ryan Mallett. Gabbert and Newton are expected to be long gone by the time the 12th pick comes up.

It gets more interesting every day with the draft talk.

Gabbert will be a decent QB.

March 21, 2011  08:04 AM ET

Nothing is certain til draft day. On that note, the Vikes need a QB.

If they want Gabbert or Newton they'll have to trade way up.

Why the hell would they go with another rookie, they just end up not playing them and then trading them. (Like they did Booty.).

it would be better if they got a veteran and picked up some wide receivers. but that make too much scents.

I think there's a guy in Hattiesburg who might be interested. Put a pretty girl on the corporate jet with a contract, and I'll be he won't even read the fine text.

This is actually something that makes some sense unlike all the other stories about qb musical chairs.

Better shoot her in the leg first. There's no way Brett can run her down anymore, otherwise.

Everyone says that, but the surest way to start a 1,000 post thread is to mention the guy. When he's been out of the league a few years we'll still be commenting on his new tractor and what he had for breakfast.

His wife will find him in a corner randomly texting pics of his junk to women everywhere just so he can remain in the spotlight.

You can still go into any barber shop in Massachusetts and start a great conversation just by saying "Bill Buckner."
