All hell broke loose after the Vikings failed to draft a player before time ran out
BEEF HISTORY NEEDS YOUR HELP ok maybe that’s dramatic but not far off. It’s nominated for a Webby Award and if you have a minute to vote, we’d appreciate you endlessly: vote.webbyawards.com/PublicVoting#/2021/video/video-series-channels/sports
Ever wonder what happens if a team runs out of time in the NFL Draft? Well, in 2003, the Minnesota Vikings did just that when they were on the clock with the 7th overall pick. While trying to make a trade happen, they let their entire 10 minutes run up and gifted all of us with a little draft day chaos.
Thankfully, the brilliant and forever wise NFL foresaw such stupidity and had some rules in place to make sure everyone knew what to do. Of course, what I mean by that, is the NFL just created a complete scramble drill that sent everyone into overdrive. Just perfect planning.
