    Some bigwigs need to nail this draft to keep their jobs

    Marr,
    These guys just won't stop trying to prove you wrong. First yahoo, now espn has turned their back on you.

    Brad Childress, coach, Minnesota Vikings: Picking 17th, Minnesota will not be able to do anything about helping the passing game in 2008. Childress could take Louisville quarterback Brian Brohm, who is seemingly falling down boards. But the Vikings might be better served looking at Michigan's Chad Henne or Delaware's Joe Flacco in the second round since a rookie quarterback is not going to save Childress's job this year. A smart move could be to try to grab Florida defensive end Derrick Harvey, who might be gone by No. 17 after a terrific pro day. Defensive end is a big need for the Vikings. Harvey could make a decent defense better.

    Re: Some bigwigs need to nail this draft to keep their jobs

    I personally have full faith in our draft team after last year (whoever is included in the decision making process).
    Should they fail this year, then I'll ask for their heads.

    I think we should maybe look at John David Booty, since he could go as late as the third round, our second pick in that round.
    Plus, a guy who I think has the potential to be a terrific right guard and would go in late rounds is Kerry Brown from App. State.
    I seriously hope the Vikings pick this guy up somewhere in the late rounds.

    Not worth even clicking the article after reading that

    Is this the same guy from ESPN that Marrdro was quoting to back up his claim?

    Take a real close look at the article and how it is written.....

    Lane Kiffin, coach, Oakland Raiders: Kiffin does have a chance to get a fine player with Oakland picking No. 4.
    Anyone on here want to believe that Kiffin is drafting this year or had any say in the draft?

    Comeon Kevon.
    When have you ever seen me get on a soap box about something that wasn't true.
    Face the facts, we have a organization that doesn't include a GM but Spielman acts like one.
    This article isn't written to point out who runs the draft but rather who's on the hot seat if the draft doesn't provide immediate impact.

    Notice the two GM's in the article.
    ;D

    I assume you are being funny as there is no link to explain how the father of Lane is important.

    Just though it was funny that you were like ESPN had it right and yahoo had it wrong and then.....
    Espn comes out with this crap.

    Here's what I believe happens at draft time....
    Childress tells the Draft team what he needs, what he is looking for and the direction the team is moving in. The draft team starts reviewing tapes and atteding games. They come back to childress with there list of players meeting his needs. At the same time they bring additional players to the table that are can't miss talents outside of the positions mentioned. This goes on until the combine, they all go to the combine and
    get a good look at players on their list and a feel for the drafting order. They add the players expected to go in the first 2 rounds( you never know who may slide or whose stock may jump up). After the draft they review and review and review fixing they draft boards together.
    THey create a list of 30 players they wish to bring in for personal visits and some they plan to travel to see on their pro-days. Come draft day they move as
    a unit but Childress has the say on what ingredients goes
    into his pot. The scouts aren't a GM they can't force a player on the team. I think Childress wholes their opinions in high regards and by the Draft they have already sorted out the confusion of what players they Want, Would love to have and would jump on if they are still around.
