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:
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.

  • 1959 NFL Draft: Green Bay on the clock for #1 pick: GM: "Wait, I have to take a poopy" Announcer: With the first overall pick in the 1959 NFL Draft Green Bay selects Ah Pupi, middle linebacker for the Mangolia Marauders, 5' 3", 135 lb without horse. (Note: his horse was drafted separately in the 4th round by the Chicago Bears)

  • the conspiracy theory that the jags sabotaged the vikings pick by continuously calling the league is better than any Qanon conspiracy i've heard yet lmfao

  • I thoughy the league should have done away with the 10 minute pick time for a 5 minute pick time years ago. If you go the course.of an entire year from draft to draft and dont already know who you want to pick, along with a long list of backup options then you probably shouldnt be an NFL GM. I dont even want to hear about draft boards changing because of a player falling. Never change your board for a player that falls. Ted Thompson formerly the GM of the Green Bay Packers and far and away the best draft and develope GM Ive ever seen, said himself his #1 rule was to ALWAYS stick to your board. Dont be lured away by the slanderous reports leaked to the media about a player. Dont fall for the kid dropping down the boards. Stick to your guns. Thompson has also stated that since the 2011 CBA rookie salary cap, in this new youth era of play that has a TON of pro ready draft talent, that teams should be looking to trade back alot more to create as many opportunities to aquire young talent as possible. Its believe that there are people starving out there without a dime in their pocket, and yet somehow there are league GMs that are millionaires who cant gt a pick sent in promptly. Cut that round one pick time in half, its fkn stupid.

  • No...not the vikings! They can't even make sure they got their pick/deal done. How does anyone expect them to win anything? Vikings will throw a 2 yard pass when its 3rd and 13 in preparation to punt the ball on 4th down. Like giving up is their best quality.

  • It should be noted. That the Vikings ended up with the "consolation prize" 6 times pro bowler Kevin Williams. Jacksonville got a bust QB in Byron Leftwich. So yeah ...Karma...

    RainmakerRainmaker6 kun oldin
  • Okay, lets not forget of those three draft picks the Vikings still got the best Player a 3 tech Defensive Lineman named Kevin Williams. The Ravens did select Terell Suggs, which you could argue was better than all of them. None of these teams were vying for the same player.

  • So there's more to this than meets the eye. First off at that point you got 15 minutes, which makes what I'm about to say more obvious. At the time the Vikings had recently been bought by Red McCombs, a Texas used car salesman.... Seriously, a Texas used car salesman. To no-ones surprise he had gutted the franchise, cutting costs at every opportunity in order to make the most on the resale. This is all documented facts. He would sign the big guys to keep the fans from overtly revolting but let most of the depth and second tier guys go, and hired a cheap first time unprepared coach (Mike Tice). I'm convinced the order was to let the time run out as they didn't think the jaguars would take Kevin Williams. They still got the guy and saved McCombs around a million dollars.

  • I remember this cluster, and it get's even weirder. this was way before the league went to set rates for draft spots. so players could still try and negotiate for tons of money. The Vikings went into the negotiation with the attitude that they picked the player with the 9th pick of the draft. The player went in saying that the Vikings had the 7th pick in the draft. i dont remember how that mess turned out, but i know it was way more of a mess then the normal negotiation for a draft contract

  • In the salary cap era, do they have to pay their 7th pick, that they picked at 9, the rate of a 7th overall, or a 9th overall. Do the other teams have to pay their players more because they picked 1 spot higher than originally planned? Just wondering.

  • ...I'm not crazy right? Minnesota did not drop the ball here, Baltimore did. Minnesota got blamed, but still got the guy they wanted. Baltimore failed to get the guy they wanted, Leftwich, because they dropped the ball on the phone call. The only blame I can put on the Vikings is that maybe they should have just sent the pick in instead of waiting for the trade to go through, since they were just sitting there watching their clock hit 0

  • When you're on the phone with multiple teams trying to make deals and/or making sure the draft pick is on board coming to your team (See John Elway, Eli Manning) then 10 minutes can go by fast. Having said that there still is no excuse knowing how much time you have left. The freaking clock is right in front of them. Then again, how many games have you seen where teams just can't seem to manage the game clock correctly.
