Re: Twin Cities Press "Not Hard" on Vikes Draft
1 guy on the team from 2001
To the people who think that this was the worst draft in Vikings history, I submit to you:
2001 Minnesota Vikings Draft Selections
1. Michael Bennett
2. Willie Howard
3. Eric Kelly
4. Shawn Worthen
5. Cedric James
6. Patrick Chukwurah
7. Carey Scott
8. Brian Crawford
1. Chris Hovan DT (25th)
2. Fred Robbins DT
2. Mike Boireau DE
3. Doug Chapman HB
4. Antonio Wilson OLB
4. Tyrone Carter S
5. Troy Walters WR
7. Mike Malano C
7. Lewis Kelly OG
0 players left on the Vikings, and I think Hovan was a bust no matter what they say in Tampa Bay.
1. Daunte (11) saved this draft.
1. Dimtrius Underwood (oh my god)
2. Jimmy Kleinsasser (good blocker but I do not think of him as a top TE)
4. Kenny Wright
4 Jay Humphrey
5. Chris Jones
6. Antico Dalton
7. Noel Scarlett
1 player left on team, and Daunte saved this draft.
1. Randy Moss (Randy made this a good draft, but it was not that hard of a pick at 21!)
2. Kailee Wong
3. Ramos McDonald
4. Kivuusama May
5. Kerry Cooks
6. Matt Birk (this was a good pick, or just odds that they finally found somebody)
7. Tony Darden
7. Chester Burnett
1 player left from this draft on the Vikes.
4 drafts and we have 3 players left on the Vikes, Randy and Daunte are superstars and both should be playing for the Vikes in a perfect world.
Even if they were it still would only be 5 players out of 4 drafts and that is pathetic! No wonder we were talent depleted 3 years ago.
I am hoping that the new organization can do a better job than this.
What we've got here is failure to communicate.
