Hmm, along with the chatter annual awards, we could hold a Norton & Bnag mock draft party!

I think we all know that Skeddy is the draft party king. I can tell you exactly what I was doing when I saw him on ESPN, it was that memorable. I just wonder what the sultan of the draft parties is doing tonight..........

Funny how every team in the league knew that this Shariff or whatever from Florida had short arms except the Vikings. That's the knock anyway, and why they figured he fell from being a top six pick all the way to us at 23. We get suckered every year. Funny that a guy that played for the Florida GATORS would have short little alligator arms.

And the cornerback, Xavier Rhodes, or whatever. He WEARS GLASSES!! How many NFL players do you see wearing glasses. What if he breaks them in a game and doesn't have another pair? This isn't Junior High Football, this is the NFL, and that stands for Not For Long if your glasses break and you can't see the ball.

OH, and let's trade four years worth of special teams players and depth for a guy that catches the ball too close to his body and from all reports is a bad route runner.

Just Brilliant. Next headline I'll read is that we've invited Hershel Walker to training camp as an unsigned free agent.

Oh my, where to start? The overall draft was edge of your seat excitement. Seven lineman in the first seven picks, only one QB taken in the first round and NO running backs (not since '63 has that happened). Crazy stuff right there.

Every year we hear the same song and dance from the Vikings - can't believe the guy was still here. But ladies and gentlemen, it's true this year. The Shariff was in everyone's top 5 picks and there he is at number 23. That's a no brainer. Steinborn could have made that decision. So what if the guy has short arms and small feet - it's the size of his heart that should be measured. All I could think of is that tune - "small hands you know you're the one!" (I'm going have to down load some Violet Friends - what a great band.)

Next up the Vikings are listening to Bnag who predicted this pick nicely and the Vikes take the long, lanky CB Rhodes from Florida. (Bnag is probably one of the top 2 or 3 football minds in town - Fuzzy is #1) Anytime you can get a guy named Xavier you got something good. Although I don't like his transition out of the back pedal which will be a liability.

But in the boldest move of the draft the Vikings trade a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 7th to move up and get Collateral Patterson - the best WR in the draft. I've seen some people crying that the Vikes gave up 4 guys for him and I've got to say these guys can't do math (typical Arlington guys - I blame Carlson). Henderson math tells me that 4 - 1 = 3. The Vikings traded 3 picks not 4 - hello! Minnesota fans will be talking for years about the great WR's to come through Minnesota = Sammy White, Quadry Ishsmells, Cris Carter, Buster Rhymes, Randy Moss, Troy Williamson and Collateral Patterson.

The big question now is what about MLB and how is that going to get filled now with lower picks in the draft. It won't come from there - it's coming from the practice squad like a Rhino through the water and his name is Audie Murphy. It's looking like if the Vikings can stay healthy it will be a DEEP playoff run, again. SKOL!

What the heck? The Vikings release Kluwe. Must be something more to that story. Anyhow, seeing Collateral at the press conference with an 84 jersey seems very fitting as most fans will probably think of that former Viking great that wore 84 when watching Collateral. It will be the second coming of Hassan Jones - mark it down.

Kluwe's stats have been falling off the last few years.

also

Kluwe needs to realize that just because you have an opinion about various issues, doesn't mean you need to spout off publicly about ever one of them.
