    Yeah!

    i've been reading all of this critisicism (sp) and just thikning to myself that a) none of us really know what we are talking about, its not our job, its their job, they are good at it, and just let them do it.
    and b) nothing we say will affect it

    but its fun to discuss and speculate!

    It all fits, once you back off the numbers a moment. If the TOA had known that they wouldn't get Clemmons at 2b, they may have traded up for Cutler. The Jets traded into the pick ahead of the Vikes to get Clemmons. They can't be held responsible for that. Clemmons was a good pick at 48, maybe better than Cutler, in the long run. They played the averages, and lost. Now, they had to plan on getting their next best QB. He must have been Jackson. At 2b, Jackson would seem safe later, so they pick Cook, without regard for relative draft position, just because they wanted him. Later, they hear that San Diego will pick Jackson in the 3. So they trade up and get their guy. OK, they won't tell us this, but that must have been the scenario. As long as they got the guys they want to coach, I'm cool.

    Damn good post man ... I think that is the bottom line ... they got guys they obvsiously wanted ... positioning and moving up be damned ... I think they are very happy with the situation and that is the most important thing.

    Actually I am suprised on how smooth our draft can run without Tice & McCombs.

    I'll say this, I like the players that the Vikes drafted based on who was left by position. I don't like the order in which the positions were drafted.
