    I had always thought it was more for the mid-round to sleeper players anyways.

    Projected First Rounders declines the invites to these kind of games, they could have a bad game or get injured and their stock would be going down, in the end it could cost them alot of money, so its really not worth the risk..

    Its however a good way for the mid/late round to UDFA projected players to show their skills because many scouts are in the stands watching the game..

    Yeah, good point skum. I'm not saying the game is a waste of time because it is good exposure for those guys from small schools, etc.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    Since Brady wasn't a first rounder does that make him a worthless player?

    Ray Edwards was not a first-rounder.
    Neither was Cedric Griffin.
    Or Marcus McCauley.
    Or Ryan Cook.
    Or Jimmy Kleinsasser.
    Or EJ Henderson.
    Or Brian Robison.
    Or Anthony Herrera.
    Or Sidney Rice.
    Or Matt Birk.
    Or Tarvaris Jackson.
    Or Aundrae Allison.

    Have I made my point yet?

    [size=13pt]Vikings Insider: Shrine Game[/size]

    1/18/2008

    By Mike Wobschall, vikings.com



    The year-round process of evaluating collegiate talent and identifying possible draft picks continues for Rick Spielman and the Vikings personnel department. Spielman, who is the Vikings Vice President of Player Personnel, and his staff are continuing to compile notes and thoughts as to where the team can improve and who will be able to help that improvement.......
    WHAT......
    No Chiller.
    ;D

    The East-West Shrine Game, which pits a teams of players who attended college in the Eastern United States against those schooled in the Western United States, attracts a countless number of scouts from professional teams. Spielman, along with Vikings Director of College Scouting Scott Studwell and three of the Vikings college scouts, were in Houston observing players participating in the Shrine Game.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
