Yeah, well we've typically done pretty well with our first rounders. Actually I'd have to look but I'm feeling like we've gotten a quality starter out of all of our first rounders in that time frame. It's the other rounds that haven't been so kind.

Yup, the Vikings have been pretty solid in the first round, fortunately. Even though it's the lowest risk pool of players, problems happen as often as not.

I think they'll do a good job this year in the 2nd and 3rd...this much depth at positions of need would be tough for anyone to botch up.

I tend to agree. The first round will show what Spielman thinks we need most. Id would bet money LB and CB, even if both are reaches. After that its BPA for any position, even the ones they filled in Rd1.
