Well, if you believe in pre-draft hype the Vikings will draft Bortles in the first or Carr in the second.............
But did you know Spielman doesn't draft players who don't answer their phones?
Did you know? Since Spielman took over, the Vikings never have picked a player that they didn’t reach on the phone immediately before they submitted their pick to New York. When the Vikings know the pick, one of the pro scouts in the room calls the player’s cellphone. "I just want to make sure they’re there, they’re alive, they’re not arrested, they haven’t lost any limbs," Spielman said. As for whether being unable to reach a player would be a deal breaker, Spielman laughs. "If Adrian [Peterson] hadn’t picked up, that would have been a tough one to pass on," he said.
Keeping an open line: Once the draft begins, the Vikings have a land line phone open to New York. It stays open for every minute of every pick in the entire draft. There are two team representatives in New York. Last year, Director of Pro Scouting Ryan Monnens and pro scout Scott Kuhn were in New York and were the ones who turned in the player card to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.
Okay, this was all an attempt to get you to look at this fanpost and respond about the strib story.
