9:01 a.m. -- Dr. James Andrews, the man who operated on Adrian Peterson's torn ACL, joined the show
On Adrian Peterson's recovery from ACL surgery:
"Its a remarkable recovery for him. He's not the average athlete as you well know. He's got the right genetics, let's put it that way."
More on Adrian:
"The question with Adrian is, what is he going to do next year? How is he going to top that?"
9:32 -- Rick "The Goose" Gosselin from the Dallas Morning News joined
On former LSU safety Tyrann "Honey Badger" Mathieu:
"His interviews will be very interesting. There's a lot to explain. A growing number of teams put a premium on character. I think The Honey Badger will go lower than he probably should."
Is the Vikings' run-first plan a plan that can take them to a Super Bowl?
"That's the formula for success. They are a team like the 'Niners that have that particular formula. You have to run the ball and play defense. I like the direction the Vikings are headed. I think if they get another receiver it will make Ponder better. I like the direction the Vikings are headed."
On why he gave his MVP vote to Adrian Peterson:
"To have the best year of your life coming off the worst injury of your life -- he deserved to be the MVP."
9:47 a.m. -- Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier stopped by radio row
On holding pick No. 23 this year vs No. 3 in 2012:
"When you are drafting where we are this season there are a lot more variables that you are going to face."
Can Adrian Peterson average 150 yards/game next year?
"If he wanted to Paul I wouldn't put it past him. What he did this last season -- there's no way I could have predicted he would have rushed for 2,000 yards. It's possible."
On the importance of re-signing right tackle Phil Loadholt:
"I know he wants to remain a Viking and I'm confident we'll get it done. We need him on our roster in 2013."
On Percy Harvin:
"There's no intent to move Percy harvin, and that's the truth. He's very valuable to our football team and I hope that I get to coach him next season."
Frazier also said he's requested to meet with former LSU safety Tyrann Mathieu.
On Antoine Winfield:
"In all my conversations with him after the season he said he wants to come back for at least one more season. We'd love to have him back."
On defensive tackles in the draft:
"I'm being told by our scouts that this is a very deep draft for defensive linemen."
On the glaring need at wide receiver:
"There's no question we gotta improve our wide receiver depth. It's an area we're going to address this offseason, for sure."
On the backup quarterback situation:
"We're going to open up that position for competition. Joe Webb will be one of the guys competing for that position."
Rehab update on second year wide receiver Greg Childs:
"He's making progress, Paul. It's still too early to determine whether or not he'll make it back from his injuries."
11:20 a.m. -- Sports Illustrated's Peter King
On the 2013 quarterback class:
"I don't know how anybody can look at the quarterbacks and say any of them are sure things."
On Manti Te'o:
"I think the Baltimore Ravens are praying that he totally steps all over himself and screws up in interviews this week because I think they would love to pick him with the 32nd pick in the draft. I think at latest Te'o will be taken at 22 or 23."
He also said the Vikings would be "foolish" to give up on Christian Ponder. King said Eli Manning was awful his first two seasons in the NFL before taking a huge step in his third and fourth years.
Where Adrian Peterson ranks among all-time great running backs:
"No. I think Jim Brown is the greatest running back in the history of the NFL. If he never played another snap, I'd have Adrian Peterson higher on my all-time list than Emmitt Smith."
11:44 a.m. -- NFL Network's Mike Mayock
On Alabama offensive lineman Chance Wormack:
"He's the best guard prospect I've seen in years. I see a little of (Steve) Hutchinson in him."
On Manti Te'o:
"His body of work over four years tells me he's a first-round inside linebacker."
On California wide receiver Keenan Allen:
"If you like him, he's Anquan Boldin. If you don't like him, he's speed deficient."
On USC wide receiver Robert Woods at this NFL Combine:
"I don't think he's going to run very fast. Great hands, catches the ball in the crowd."
