Position Battle to Watch: Quarterback
Until Favre does show up the Vikings have to move forward with a quarterback competition between Sage Rosenfels and Tarvaris Jackson. Rosenfels offers more experiences and perhaps is better suited as a game manager if they intend to rely on the running game. Jackson has far more upside and more playmaking ability.
Impact Rookie: Chris Cook
Antonie Winfield and Cedric Griffin both battled injuries last season and Cook must be ready to step into a starting role should either of them suffer setbacks. Cook has the size to be a physically dominant cornerback, but there are many scouts who feel he lacks the athleticism to play corner and is better suited at free safety.
