With the news that Rick Spielman, Mike Zimmer and Norv Turner attended Alabama's Pro Day on Wednesday, some speculated what that could mean. 

From afar, it's obviously difficult to discern. I'd argue that it's dangerous to read too much into the composition of the group. If those were the only three Vikings staffers in attendance, I don't think it necessarily means they were focussed on offense, specifically quarterback A.J. McCarron.

Zimmer will run the defense, Turner the offense, and Spielman the personnel. speculated it could mean the Vikings will look at quarterback A.J. McCarron, perhaps in the second round.

To advance the conversation, we want to open it up to Vikings fans. Alabama had a lot of NFL-bound players on last year's team. Minnesota's staff may simply have been taking an opportunity to get an extra look at any of these players.

Here are the Crimson Tide players expected to go early in May's NFL Draft. 

Who would you like to see in Purple?

Linebacker: C.J. Mosley

Safety: Ha Ha Clinton-Dix

Offensive Tackle: Cyrus Kouandjio

Quarterback: A.J. McCaron

Any others you'd like added to add to the list in later rounds?
