Warren Sapp ....almost a Viking? Vikings learn from draft mistake an pick Randy Moss

I remember watching the draft the year Warren Sapp came out (1995). Minnesota wanted a lineman and looked at Sapp, but decided not to due to his marijuana issues. Vikings picked at #11 and took Derrick Alexander (bust) that is not in Canton. Tampa Bay selected Sapp at #12. Sapp quickly become a pro-bowler by 1997. 1998 Draft Minnesota faced with the same issue of whether they should or shouldn't take a college player with huge upside and some baggage...select Moss. Finally, a good one. I have seen several posts about the worst Vikings draft pick and I think it was ...Darrin Nelson. The Vikings decided to on Darrin and let Marcus Allen (Heisman Trophy) go to Oakland. I don't think Marcus would have dropped the ball on the goal line against the Redskins. Super Bowl in 2013!
