Safe pick from a Childress perspective I think (over taking another QB, admitting his mistake then trying to develop him and the WR group, this way, pure pounding the ball behind the left side). Dont mind it at all.

? why exactly is it "hahahah" for me ?

All I've ever said is I wanted value at 7. A.D. gives us decent value there.....of course, I agree with the concensus that he's not a guy that
will hold up over the span of a season. I expect he'll be injured by week 12.

And yeah, I wanted Quinn and think he'd have been a much better value
at 7, but to say "hahaha" is a typical Minnesota fan response.
The same fans that booed Daunte Culpepper and Kevin Williams
and boasted about how Chris Hovan and Troy Williamson would be "sure bets" to make Pro Bowls.

I've learned that for the most part to ignore what Viking fans "want" because they're uneducated on what it takes to create a winner.


....now, on A.D. IF and that's a GIANT IF ...if he stays healty, he will be a very good weapon for this team. To bad we still don't have a passing attack to take pressure off of the running game.

Am I the only one who is devastated that we took Rice when Jarrett was still available. Ill admit that hurt me a little. Typical Vike pick.

At least we took AD, would have preferred Quinn, but Peterson is a good pickup.

Jarrett is going to have a very tough time in the league.I do like the McCauley pick...would've prefered Dameion Hughes as I think his skill better transistions to the Tampa 2...but McCauley is a very good prospect as well..All in all I like the areas we addressed today. Got good value at 1, got the WR we desperately needed in 2 and took a guy who could be groomed to take over for Winfield at 3.Solid effort so far...time will tell if this day 1 was worth passing on a potentialQB, and if we took the "right" WR.

Loving the first day, probably not going to be able to watch the second day since I have a doubleheader tomorrow. We have two fourth round selections so looking forward to that.

I give today's draft a B+. If RB had actually been a need, I'd say an A.

But hopefully we see a lot of this: http://maddenfb.com/photos/draftpick.../original.aspx

Can't say I'm too upset with day one. I like AD. Still can't decide if we made the right choice. I like Rice. Jarret would have been nice but I think Rice is quicker. His cuts seem tighter and his acceleration also seems better. Addressing the DB situation was an obvious need and we made a solid pick. Pretty good for the third round anyway. I am upset Paul Williams got away. I just liked the way he played. I'll be looking forward to day 2.

You guys had, by far, the best day IMHO. 3 Day 1 starters if they come in working "All Day."

Atlanta came in second.... not sure what they went WR for with all the number 1s they have invested in WR.

First day champs = Vikings.

Yea im not totally sold on the decision of passing on quinn, but atleast we passed on quinn for Adrian Peterson rather than Ted Ginn...

I love the second pick i love how we got a trade down with atlanta and picked up an extra 4th and still got Sidney Rice. I would have liked to have Dwayne Jarret but i think what it boiled down to is Jarret's character i dont think he was a childress guy.

I love the third rounder as McCauley is of GREAT value and i love his potential i would have also been fine to see Charles Johnson at that pick but i think childress made the correct decision in going with McCauley

on day two, i hope we target beekman, ramirez, and barbre to help our line. i wouldn't mind taking allison or courtney taylor, but would much rather have a pass catching tight end like patrick or milner. only d end i'd like to see us take right now is robison. also for the defensive line if mcbean is still there, i pray to god we take him. i'm hoping for mcbean with the first 4th rounder, ramirez with the second, and milner in round 5.

I think it's way to early to "grade" drafts. Typically you do that 3 years after it's over. Right now all we'd be grading is hype.
Let's see how these guys react and respond to the position they get put in.

With that said I like the guys the Vikes took ...also San Fran, Atlanta, Cleveland, and Indy took great players for their system. I expect all 4 of those guys to make contributions right away.

I don't understand Houston's choices AT ALL. how they refuse to help out their QB's by neglecting their O-line is some sort of conspiracy.
I expect Matt Schaub to be knocked out of at least 3 games.
Kansas City too. Honestly, they lost Roaf, Sheilds, Turley....who the hell is even left to block for LJ ?

These 2 teams will have to share the "bonehead draft strategy" award for passing on O-Lineman to take skill position players.

Maybe because you've spent the better part of the last several months calling any Viking fan an idiot if they didn't want your manlover Brady Quinn at #7.

The guy had to freaking seek shelter in a private suite to avoid utter embarrassment. It would hardly be "valuable" taking Quinn at #7, and the facts prove it.

You were wrong again. As usual.

Allison and an O-lineman in the 4th would be just fantastic.
If we get say Allison and Rameriez. I'd be very happy with whoever else
we took in the 5th - 7th (even Marcus Thomas)

You're a liar and a moron. I've said I want value at 7. Find a post suggesting anything contrary. Otherwise s.t.f.u.

Yeah, he's still going home tonight a multi millionaire (he has the highest noteriety in the draft..his marketabilty is thru the roof now.
he gets a chance to start on a team that isn't going to give up 80+ sacks
has 2 solid weapons... a rising defense behind him and he gets to play so close to his family he'll probably need 50 tix for every game. He's still going to be one of people's 50 most beautiful people and gets to nail that sweet blonde that was on his arm all day long.

...yeah , feel sorry for him when something bad happens to the guy.
