So enough about that for a while. I want to talk about the third round—a round that the Vikings have made a mockery of over the past decade.
This organization has not succeeded with a third-round pick since they selected Nate Burleson back in 2003. You have to go all the way back to 1996, when the Vikings drafted Moe Williams, to find another player who made a significant contribution out of the third round.
This team has only had two third-round picks since 2006 and none since they took Asher Allen back in 2009.
We all have to agree on that being just awful.
So, while the first and second rounds are very important this year, it’s paramount that the Vikings drill their mid-round picks in order to fill all the holes that this team currently has.
Now let’s see what options the Vikings will have with the 67th pick in this year’s draft.
