The Draft is Here!

Ever since the election, I’ve been closely monitoring the draft situation. The left was widely assuring us that the re-election of George W. Bush would make the return of the draft inevitable. Now I see that they were 110% right. Silly me, I assumed they were talking about a Military draft. It is now clear that they were talking about the return of the NFL draft. Hopefully, the Vikings will use the draft pick they received in the horrendous Randy Moss trade to draft a player with at least half his ability.

NIHILIST ADDS: The Vikings selected WR Troy Williamson from South Carolina with the seventh pick of the first round, which they received in the Moss trade. CBS Sportsline draft analyst Pete Prisco is impressed, giving the pick an A+ rating:

This is the right pick. Not Mike Williams. Troy Williamson can fly. The Vikings needed to replace their deep threat in Randy Moss, and Williamson can do that. The Vikings did the right thing drafting the speed, not the possession receiver. A terrific pick of a player I love.
