    Front office: Like Indianapolis' Bill Polian, Smith was tutored under the late John Butler of Buffalo Bills fame.

    Biggest mistake: Chargers general manager Alex Smith hasn't made many. All 16 of San Diego's picks chosen between rounds one and four the past four years remain on the roster.
    Front office: Polian earned the contract extension he recently received from team owner Jim Irsay. Polian has done an exceptionally good job surrounding quarterback Peyton Manning with talent and identifying players who can shine in Tony Dungy's cover-two defensive system.
    Front office: Bill Belichick and Scott Pioli concentrate heavily on linemen (offensive and defensive) with early picks and love moving down, especially if such maneuvering secures choices for the following year.
    Front office: General manager Tim Ruskell has headed the past three drafts after coach Mike Holmgren was stripped of personnel power.
    Front office: Jerry Reese did a splendid job in his first season as New York Giants general manager replacing Ernie Accorsi, who held the spot for the previous nine drafts. Seven of last year's picks contributed during New York's Super Bowl run
    Front office: Call him "Trader Ted." Since hired in 2005, Thompson has parlayed 11 picks into a total of 17 selections by trading down on every transaction. Five of those players could be starting this season, including budding wide receiver Greg Jennings.
    Here's something unique:

    Patriots: Film opponents' signals from anywhere they can to cheat to get an advantage.
    Also film walk-through practices immediately preceding the Super Bowl to gain unfair advantage.
    LOL

    Re: Draft report: Top teams of last 5 years

    Decent article...I listen to Alex on SIRIUS NFL Radio often.
    Honestly, there are people here, posting, that are more knowledgeable in my opinion.
    The Vike's biggest issues with their drafts are clearly Troy Williamson....THAT is HUGE.
    Erasmus' health, and his lack of production are another significant issue.
    Layer on the fact that Kinechi took awhile to become a VERY GOOD LDE (for you Marr), and, the Vikes have missed quite a bit with high rounders.


    As I keep saying, the 2007 Draft Class may very well turn out to be our best of all time.....top to bottom.
    It is hard to argue the greatness of Alan Page, Fran Tarkenton, and other Hall of Famer's drafted; but, if you look at contribution after one year, this class is off to a great startl.

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent

    As a matter of fact, I do know
