    Spielman: Draft is bloodline of your organization

    Vikings vice president of player personnel Rick Spielman talked about a variety of subjects in his discussion with reporters on Friday. Chip and I wrote about much of it in today’s coverage, which you can find by clicking here and here. One thing we did not get at was Spielman’s response to a question about making trades that could involve draft picks.....

    Another shot in the Ass from our QB Goru, Chillster.

    I was wondering.
    WTF?
    how many fricken picks did we give up for Holcomb, he wasnt' even on the team last year, was he?

    If you give your bloodline away two years in a row, it can have significant consequences down the
    road
    There might not be no down the road if we don't put together a championship team.

    I may be missing something, but why does everyone seem to think we will get a new stadium if we win a championship?

    I always finds this funny.


    Offensively we have 4 at the most that gets regular minutes.
    AD, Cook, Rice, and Jackson.
    Of the 4 only AD has his position locked up.

    Defensively we have Edwards and Griffin.

    Maybe these numbers increase next season but so far for a team that builds through the draft they have very little to show for it.

    Well, it wouldn't hurt...

    We will also have Tyrell Johnson next year.
    And probably Sully at center.
    I think that a lot of the additions have been brought in through the draft.
    Of course, that doesn't mean that we should ignore FA or trades, but I like the idea of being draftr centric.

    I expect Sullivan at center but it is too soon to tell about Johnson.
    He was "ok" during his rookie season but also had some real bad plays.
