Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: It's certainly a risky pick, but Harvin adds a dynamic to a Vikings offense that has enough potential to make it one of the most dangerous in the NFL. That's especially true if either Tarvaris Jackson or Sage Rosenfels can put together a good season at quarterback. In addition to being a very dangerous catch-and-run receiver out of the slot, Harvin also could line up in the "Wildcat" and will be used on returns. His presence means that it isn't going to be as easy for opposing defenses to put eight men in the box in order to try and stop Adrian Peterson. A closer look at the Vikings' picks: Round 1/22 -- Percy Harvin, WR, 5-11, 184, Florida...Despite character and injury issues that surrounded the ultra-talented Harvin, the Vikings were enamored with his talent. The Vikings also did extensive background work on Harvin, who reportedly tested positive for marijuana in February at the NFL Scouting Combine. Coach Brad Childress visited Harvin in Florida last week before signing off on the decision to make the pick. - by The Sports Xchange
