All the more reason to take a chance on Tebow! If there's one team in the league who has drafted well enough of late to make one supposedly risky pick right now, it's the Vikings. Call it a luxury pick, call it stupit. Just CALL IT.

You may now commence thrashing my post to shreds for suggesting such a thing. Go ahead, don't be shy... Hit that little 'judge' button and tell the world how nuts I am. You'll see...

Tebow? Meh. But at this point, I have more faith in the Vikings draft crew than in my own judgment, so if that's who they go with, I will assume that they saw what they wanted in him. They've earned that much.

I think Favre and Tebow would get along famously. They're from the same part of the country and share the same social and cultural values.

Actually, that's my whole backup plan in case the draft doesn't go the way I want it -- rely on my confidence in Childress and Spielman to make the right calls on picks.

As I posted in an earlier thread, I'm (almost) convinced the very public interest they seem to be showing in Tebow means they are NOT actually interested in taking him, but are instead throwing out a few false flags.

Best guess I've read was from a poster who suggested they are trying to draw trade interest from teams drafting early in the 2nd who might want to take him, hoping they could pick up an extra selection for trading down a few spots, while still getting one of the top CB's in what is said to be a deep CB class this year.

Say what you want about Childress, but that's a pretty impressive list of players. He didn't do it by himself, but give him credit. If you take the Raiders, Browns, Lions and Rams, those teams haven't picked that many good players total among them.

This article could have used some more recent context -- to really know how good the Vikings have drafted in the Chidress/Spielman era, one only needs to go back one more year to 2005:

Troy Williamson
Erasmus James
Marcus Johnson
Dustin Fox
Ciatrick Fason
C.J. Mosley
Adrian Ward

Seven picks, and none stuck with the Vikings. Two are bit players in the league - the rest are long gone.

Great. Childress made some good choices and some bad ones. Peterson fell; Rice is solid....But having better than average draft classes does not excuse poor planning and game management. Chilly needs to leave....linebackers and secondary help will put this team over the top...

What the heck does Chili have to do with the draft? Thank Scott Studwell and the other awesome scouts for doing a great job, and Speilman for the good sense to listen to them.

Yes, the Vikes need help in the secondary and at LB, but if Clausen falls to them at #30(as some sites have predicted, personally I think not) they have to pick him.

Good info, Vikes passed on Mike Williams to get T. Williamson that year-OUCH.

Hey Reality Checker. Check again.

As the story stated Childress became the coach in 2006. You're talking about your beloved Tice in 2005. How many drafts did Tice and Co bungle?

You are an "A" number 1 moron.

You honestly think the coach has no involvement in the draft? Seriously, were you born under a rock?

Chili has done nothign but improve this team every year. Last year they were a win away from the big one. If that trend continues, this may be there year.

So many of you just hate Childress, and I too have questioned his decision making in games, but they keep winning. Hell, Detroit just wants to have a winning record for once. We don't have it that bad. Remember the best teams don't always win. And it's not always the coaches fault.

Vikes need to take one of the offensive lineman with the 30th pick. The line is getting old and the Saints showed they can be beaten with blitzes.
The rest of the draft should be spent on LBs and DBs unless there is a player there that shouldn't be. Pick the QB from Fordham in the 3rd or 4th would be fine by me. Big Arm.

I think that was his point, the year before Childress got here they stunk up the draft and since they have done pretty good.
