    Later round picks

    What have been the best picks after the second round in the draft in the last 5 years? Either a vikings player or just any NFL player.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    Marques Colston 252nd pick of the 2006 draft - 7th-rounder.
    4th pick from the end of the draft.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Re: Later round picks

    I agree with Zeus.

    For the Vikings the best must be the pick of Mewelde Moore in the 4th in 2004

    Going a little further back than 5 years on of the all time best late round picks (at least that I can remember) must be to take Birk in the 6th in '98

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Re: Later round picks

    these players aren't the best but they made a difference and would be considered a steal at the round. I probably missed quite a few so if you don't see somebody, post it up.


    Brian Westbrook 26 pick of the 3rd round in 02 by the eagles.

    Aaron Kampman 21 pick of the 5th round in 02, seattle traded pick to GB

    Chestor Taylor? 35th pick of the 6th round in 02 by the ravens

    David Givens 42nd pick of the 7th round in 02 by the patriots

    Lance Briggs #4 of the 3rd round in 03 by the bears

    Jason Witten #5 of the 3rd round in 03 by the cowboys

    some might say domanick davis when he is healthy? #4 pick of the 4rth round in 03 by the texans

    and undrafted in 03 was tony romo

    04:

    Jason David? 29th pick of the 4rth round by the colts from philly through atlanta

    and willie parker was an udrafted rookie picked up by the steelers

    05:

    Frank Gore #1 pick of the 3rd round by the 49ers

    chris harris #7 of the 6th round by the bears

    06:

    Marques Colston #44 of the 7th round by the saints.

    we may see more players from this draft explode later.

    that is a few players, some of them are questionable and some i might have missed.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    Re: Later round picks

    Three bubble up without question, in this order:
    1)
    Colston
    2)
    Fast Willie Parker
    3)
    tie between Briggs and Kampman

    Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent
    ----------------------------------------------
    As a matter of fact, I do know

    Colston is my choice. If only we would have signed him...

    colston was a 7nth round pick. we were done by the 5 round. oh well, i guess that late in the draft is all kinda a guessing game. your not sure whether you will pick up a chad johnson or a colston.

    Thanks Josdin00 for the sig!

    Re: Later round picks

    Tom Brady misses the 5 years because he was drafted in 2000 in the 6th round he was the 199 player taken overall, he has to be in the top 5 all time late round picks.
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.
