    How come Peterson doesn't make the list?
    6 teams ended up passing on the Rookie of the Year and Pro Bowl MVP...doesn't he get any love on this list?

    He would have been a better player in Minnesota than Jacksonville...and at least he can catch...Williamson can't.
    Also remember, I advocated that we take Derrick Johnson at #7 and Matt Jones at the pick where the Vikes got Erasmus James.
    The Vikes would have gotten a BETTER defensive player AND a better OFFENSIVE one too (it doesn't take much to be better than Williamson).
    :P

    doesn't take much to be better than James right now either, but in his defense he has had three knee surgeries

    #36 on the bad picks should have been a lot higher.

    There sure are a lot of bad picks for Detroit...who's making those decisions? ;D Sure hope he has job security.

    Surprised Tony Mandarich wasn't on that list.

    I don't know about you guys, but I'm actually pretty happy with our Williamson pick. I mean, we could have ended up with that Merriman guy, or Demarcus Ware.

    Re: Best, worst & most unlucky picks of the past ten NFL Drafts

    is this the worst pick ever by the Vikings?

    36.
    Dimitrius Underwood DE Minnesota Vikings





    29 overall (1st round) 1999
    No one denied Underwood’s physical abilities, but there were serious concerns about his character.
    His college coaches at Michigan State said he wasn’t mentally prepared for the NFL, and they were right.
    Underwood quit the Vikings on his first day of training camp and signed with the Dolphins, who released him after he attempted suicide.
    Shortly thereafter, Underwood was diagnosed with bi-polar disorder, and for whatever reason, the Cowboys decided it would be a good idea to sign him.
    After he ran into traffic in a second attempt to kill himself, Jerry Jones cut him and ended the experiment.
    Underwood was drafted one pick ahead of perennial Pro Bowl (and mentally stable) defensive end Patrick Kerney.

    At least we didn't give him $2 million dollars like the Packers gave to Tony Mandarich.
