    Buying into latest myth can get teams burned

    http://www.nfl.com/draft/story;jsessionid=1F7C2B1276F8D1C915B23ED1A8A021E2? id=09000d5d80789c94&template=with-video&confirm=true

    Every so often, an apparent new trend pops up in the NFL that gets its legs for some unfounded reason. And it usually involves a concept that teams can get by with inferior players at a certain position.

    I still don't think we need to draft CB in the first round.

    I would prefer to see the Vikes trade up to get who they want at DE first.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE

    My favorite part

    Myth No. 2: Don't waste a first-round pick on a running back.

    ...How do you think the six teams that passed on Adrian Peterson feel about that concept?

    Seems like the vikes kinda fell for the first one, going with Brad Johnson was really about managing the game, glad they were ahead of the curve on myth 2.

    I would agree with that unless there is a can't miss player like Peterson.
    No need to reach for runningbacks, as even later round backs can produce if their in the proper situation.
    Memo and Wizzinator were 4th round picks, Chester Taylor was a 6th round pick.
    However, if there is a complete back like AD, then by all means take him in the 1st.

    YES!!! We didn't get burned last year lol
    ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

    Peterson and Lynch shure proved that myth wrong!


    What I can't understand is how everybody overlooked Ryan Grant in last year's draft.
