    The draft-pick value charts show that the cost to move to #1 (because that's what it would take - they can't move to #2, because Detroit would *never* trade with a division rival - even Millen isn't that stupid) is steep.

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/draft06/insider/news/story?id=2410670&action=login&appRedirect=http%3a% 2f%2finsider.espn.go.com%2fnfl%2fdraft06%2finsider %2fnews%2fstory%3fid%3d2410670

    The #1 overall is worth 3000 points - the #7 is 1500.
    The combined "value" of the Vikings entire draft (at #7 in each round) is 2192.
    So, to guarantee that the Vikings get Calvin Johnson, it would cost them their entire 2007 draft AND picks from 2008 or players off of the roster.

    For one player, you're willing to give up 8 or more players?

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Double *sigh*

    Especially since the staff has repeatedly stated over and over about thier reliance on the draft to build the core of this team.

    No way they give up all thier picks unless of course the core can be just one player
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Man, I was just messin around. I realize it is in your blood to put people down, but I didn't actually mean it. I realize there is virtually no way to get CJ.

    Actually Cajun said it first, so why didn't you try and attack him?

    I knew that - but I'm trying to teach you something.

    Cajun cannot be taught - he's too old and hairless.

    Re: No. 7 pick offers many scenarios for Vikings

    It would be nice if Joe Thomas would drop to 7.
    We could use a good strong tackle on the right side.
    Since we don't have a decent QB in camp we are going to have to open some holes and run 70 percent of the time.
    I can see Chilli picking someone like Sidney Rice.
    Then telling us all we got the guy we wanted, he would not have been available with our 2nd round pick, similar to the Jackson drafting last year.
