|I remember thinking at the time that Williamson was a reach at no. 7 and that Erasmus James was too injury-prone to take at their own first round slot (around number 20?), especially considering their history of drafting bad DEs (Derrick Alexander, Duane Clemons). Both wound up being right in the end.|
|I agree bardley. We haven't had a good DE since Chris Doleman was around. And I wish Williamson the best...but the guy just couldn't produce. Feel bad for James and his fragile tendons and ligaments. 2005 was def a forgettable draft. Set us back a couple years at least I think. I'll have to look...but was 2005 a good draft for any team?|
|In 2005 was not really the best draft year for most teams. Hopefully these changes will help the Vikings along more as well.|
