    I'll just pretend this article is talking about last year and what a great job we did with 2 1st rounders and not that other year with a 5 in it.
    I am NOT here to provide good football insight or rational observations. I am an emotional 19 year old Viking fan and I expect you to adjust your expectations from my posts.

    Oh I don't need any reminders about what happened last time! I don't think a single guy from that draft was on the team as lil as 3 years later. Ouch! Ugly.

    But, in Tice and co.'s defense, that was a horrible time to have an extra 1st round pick, as it was the tweener season where the draft happened under McComb's cheap ass scouting staff before the Wilfs had a chance to properly invest in that department.

    We can only hope to do better this time around, specially considering how well we did last draft!

    One thing I know is we have not had a great MLB since Del Rio left and that was a hell of a long time ago. If there is one position I would love to see us draft a franchise player besides QB it would be MLB.

    +1! Say no to DT in the first round. Say no to Urlacher too!

    I'm fine starting any of the top 3 guys. Arthur Brown, Alec Ogletree, or Manti Te'o (great fit for our scheme) .

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    Not sure, but it's probably still primarily the same scouting team with Studwell now as it was back then. I don't recall a huge overhaul in that department.

    Scott Studwell Director of College Scouting
    Jamaal Stephenson Assistant Director of College Scouting
    Scott Kuhn Pro Scout
    Ryan Monnens Pro Scout
    Jeff Robinson Pro Scout
    Steven Price Pro Scout
    Paul Roell Regional Scout
    Frank Acevedo Area Scout
    Terrance Gray Area Scout
    Kevin McCabe Area Scout
    Mike Sholiton Area Scout
    Reed Burckhardt Blesto Scout

    Burckhardt appears to be a newer addition/relacement

    No he's not! Te'o is slow and another version of Brinkley. If you are going to run a Tampa Two you had better have a faster LB than him.

    There s only two things stopping you - fear and common sense!! The Truth you CAN"T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!

    I remember some articles coming out after the ownership change became official about how used car salesman McCombs had gotten with the franchise, cutting corners everywhere. Tice wasn't just head coach, he also had to be the positional OL coach, the D-Coord was also coaching LBs, etc.

    I'm pretty sure there are numbers somewhere showing that the staff more than doubled once the Wilf's fully took the reigns...?

    While that may be true, isn't it the case that Red had cut way back on the budget and the support staff that supported them? It seems to me there were articles after Wilf bought the team that stated Red had pretty much gutted the staff and that Wilf had to put a lot of money into getting things back the way they should be in the personnel department.
