SB Nation's Daily Norseman has the Vikings draft grades in and they are...
OK, they don't like grading drafts two days after it ends like a lot of folks. But they have good reason. Daily Norseman passes along a quote from a draft analyst written the day after the 2005 draft. The review was glowing and suggested the Vikings had a great draft.
Five years later and not one player from that draft is still on the team.
The more Daily Norseman researches -- and there's a lot of research here -- the more they like it.
So, the more I look at the Vikings' draft, the more I like it. Does that mean that the class is going to be awesome? Certainly not. . .but given the recent track record of Brad Childress and Rick Spielman when it comes to talent evaluation, I'm going to go ahead and trust them until they give me sufficient reason not to.
Here's the full list of the Vikings 2010 draft class:
CB Chris Cook
RB Toby Gerhart
DE Everson Griffen
OT Chris Degeare
LB Nathan Triplett
QB Joe Webb
TE Mickey Shuler
LB Ryan D'Imperio
