Actually, Moving up to draft players is a good move if the players end up as good as the scouts think they are. The Packers moved up for Clay Matthews, and that was a pretty good move for them. Harrison Smith looks like a good move for the Vikings so far.
On the other hand, the Vikings sometimes move up to select players that would have been there later. I doubt they had to make the moves they did for Ponder, Jackson, or other players they not only reached for but moved up to reach for.
By the way, Clay Matthews is really Clay Matthews III. How come he doesn't have a III on his uniform like Robert Griffin III?

Percy is now stating that he's never had a problem with Ponder
I never had a problem with him; Iíve never stated I had a problem with him. Iíve never seen a problem heís had with me; heís never said heís had a problem with me. [We were] on the same page, itís just a lot of articles that tried to pick up on things that werenít there.Ē
Now having read that I'd be a bit interested to hear from Percy what his problem really was

When he was upset in TC, I think they promised him they'd work on a new deal & it never came to fruition. Then he got hurt & didn't have his deal & felt he wasn't going to get one & wanted out. Was he worth CJ money? No, but he was certainly worth more than what we were paying him & had they done a restructure/extension last July-August, I think he could have been signed for around 9-10 mil.
