    Geez, I guess it had something to do with your post stating you hope 2012 is a turning point where we finally get productive starters outside of the first round.

    It certainly doesn't take a leap, much less a step to see you clearly believe the Vikings haven't had much in getting productive starters outside of the first round.

    Again, I simply posted past drafts to show what those picks were prior to 2012.

    I'm not talking about players that haven't started. I'm talking about players we drafted that were good picks at the time, but for one reason or another aren't here anymore.

    If taking players that end up on our roster for an extended period of time is what you call success & exactly what your looking for, then don't even bother looking at this years draft class or last year for that matter.

    None of them have been here for an extended period of time.

    Then stop overthinking things.

    A 3-13 finish should produce a pretty good draft. We will see how good it is in a few seasons.
