Vikings take another receiver

With their fifth-round pick, the Vikings selected East Carolina WR Aundrae Allison.
He is 6 feet tall, and he runs a pretty quick 40-yard dash. Here is what Pro Football Weekly said of him: "Consistently won one-on-one matchups at the Senior Bowl, and showed a lot of natural ability. However, he is very raw, not very smart, not very tough and may struggle to ever find consistency in the pros. Will require a patient coach."
Ouch. Is it me, or are these summaries from PFW brutal?
I hope they never do one on beat writers.
On a positive note, he does show potential as a punt returner, and he will play for a patient coach, George Stewart.

This is probably what PFW would say about you, Sean: "Jensen shows some natural ability with slightly above average football I.Q., but will often split his infinitives and his understanding of the participle forms is atrocious. Often gets caught in the general malaise and negativity that accompanies most Vikings fans. Requires a patient readership willing to work with him over time, but could someday blossom into an every-issue type journalist in the right system."

Ouch. I knew PFW was tough.

Other than getting open and catching the ball, our receiving corps is great. How much intelligence does one need from a WR? It doesn't take a Blalock wonderlic score to notice if one defender is following you, or if you are being passed off to another in a zone scheme. I'm happy to have another receiver who seems to be adept at getting open and catching the ball. . .
