    Vikings Draft Recap - After the Dust Settles - A Successful Vikings' Draft?

    [size=13pt]Few chosen, few needed[/size]

    The Vikings, after shrewd offseason roster additions, only needed to mine the draft for supplemental players.

    The Vikes DID to the one thing that I most wanted them too do (well, besides draft Early Doucet, that is)...they traded up and took better players (quality over quantity).
    That makes me very happy indeed...since there was no way that nine draft picks would have made the roster anyway.

    Didn't I say that a week ago when many here wanted to sign Allen to an offer sheet & give up the 2009 & 2010 1st picks instead.

    We used our brains and made moves to grab quality kids, that will make our roster. After all our busy free-agency we picked kids with substance, guys that will embelish our future.

    Selective memory I guess. You're only about a week late. Check the Allen thread.

    Vikings coach Brad Childress and vice president of player personnel Rick Spielman addressed the media this afternoon after the Vikings completed drafting players. A quick review...

    I just remember you complaining about how dumb it was to give up future picks.
    :P

    Nice read my friend, with so many nuggets to choose from.......

    Q. How do you feel about the offensive tackle position, especially when you consider left tackle Bryant McKinnie’s offseason legal troubles?

    A. I’m OK with it. We have Chase Johnson, [who] I believe will be a year better. You have Artis Hicks, who has that swing capability there, and Marcus Johnson. So none of that has changed. Nobody has left us in that regard there and I’d have to say that those five guys played all right last year.”
    Very interesting comment don't ya think.
    ;D
