    Vikings: Rapid Fire With Rufus Alexander

    [size=13pt]RAPID FIRE WITH RUFUS ALEXANDER[/size]

    MAY 29, 2007

    Author: Mike Wobschall, vikings.com

    Even though he was the 2006 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year, Vikings rookie linebacker Rufus Alexander will be on a mission in 2007 to prove wrong all of those who passed on him in April's draft.

    I couldn't agree more I was so pumped when we got Robison.

    I had actually been hoping we would get him on day two and when we did I was stunned to say the least.

    Rufus wasn't really on my radar, but the more I read the more I like that pick especially in the 6th round.

    I'll second that davike, I think we had a very good draft this offseason. I'm excited to see what all these young talented rookies can contribute to the team this season. Even more so, hopefully we will get to see what our 1st pick from last year (Greenway) brings to the field.


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Re: Vikings: Rapid Fire With Rufus Alexander

    Is it possible that we have a team that can evaluate talent and knows when to pick them?

    That would be so awesome if that were the case.


    Maybe we will even start to see more of this KAO we have heard about.

    Really though, I do like the drafts we have had so far.

    Why do you wait until the second year to make a statement like that?
    Unless of course you are of the ilk that believe that TJ and Cook were reaches were they were taken, the staff did a good job last year also.
    :

    17 1 17 Chad Greenway LB Iowa
    48 2 16 Cedric Griffin CB Texas
    51 2 19 Ryan Cook C New Mexico
    64 2 32 Tarvaris Jackson QB Alabama St.
    127 4 30 Ray Edwards DE Purdue
    149 5 17 Greg Blue ROV Georgia
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Drafts, being plural, indicates he has liked the two drafts the new staff has had this far, which would include last year wouldnt it?

    I'm anxious to see this guy play as well.
    I like to see guys who play all out without fear (aka Winfield) regardless of less than ideal physical attributes.
    Shows the mental vs. physical part of the game and what desire can do for you.

    Therein lies the confusion.
    Somewhat of a contridiction.
    Should have explain my point better as not to confuse as well.
