    Minnesota Drafting Problems?

    Hey i'm new to the site an i decided to join an talk about the Vikings.
    Im excited about the draft coming up.
    But while looking at our old drafts this is what i found.

    1998 draft: 1 person is still on our team
    1999 draft: 1 person is still on our team
    2000 draft: None is remaining
    2001 draft: None is remaining
    2002 draft: 1 person is remaining
    2003 draft: 2 people are reamaing

    in my eyes this isnt good i pray for a good draft!!

    Which is exactly why I'd give a few picks up for Calvin Johnson.

    Welcome to the site.
    I joined not too long ago also and the site is great.
    Everybody is really nice and there is a lot of good vikings comments and debates on here.
    I think the last couple of years had given the vikes some good drafts and i think this years is going to be a good one too.
    I have a lot of faith in this years draft picking up some good players.
    I am also very excited and think that the vikes are in pretty good shape.
    Especially if the vikes get AP!!!!
    I hope that happens.

    Welcome aboard !


    Seeing that the Vikings head coaches were changed twice over the period you listed, I am not surprised by the lack of significant continuity in the roster as regards draft choices retained.
    Further, free agency is often used to rebuild a team, sort of like a game of musical chairs.

    Therefore, what you perceive as ineffective drafting can be explained as due to:
    1. free agency turnover due to a highly competitive market for players,
    2. a few severe escalations of the salary cap money and TV ad money enabling a more intense competition for free agents, and
    3. impetuous ownership regarding head coaches' won-loss records.
    When we stop to think about it, most folks behavior isn't perplexing after all !

    I think a better indication of how well we drafted may be how many of those are still playing in the NFL.

    However, great idea, good post, and keep up the good work!
