    Vikings' recent draft picks haven't been much help

    [size=13pt]Vikings' recent draft picks haven't been much help[/size]

    No doubt, one factor hurting the Vikings' chances to win more games is the fact that neither their 2005 nor 2006 drafts have produced any big-time contributors.

    Former Vikings coach Bud Grant used to say that you can't judge draft choices until perhaps late in their second season or the start of their third season.

    Most of these guys IMO, will be big time contributors once they have the chance to play for awhile or are healthy.

    That list includes;

    Griffin, Greenway, James, Fason, Edwards, Cook & T-Jack.

    C.J. Mosley is one guy I hated to see go. Fox, I'm not sure of his whearabouts & the jury is still out on Marcus Johnson.

    Williamson, I don't know if he will ever get there. From the list, he's the biggest disappointment so far.

    The new coaching staff clearly didn't like him, so he was cut after training camp.

    He is now with the Eagles.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.
