Draft Day decison makers: Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings will be led on draft day by Vice President of Player Personnel Rick Speilman. He is in charge of all player personnel issues and heads the college and pro scouting departments. He will be joined in the war room by Rob Brzezinski Vice President of Football Operations, George Paton Director of Player Personnel, Scott Studwell Director of College Scouting, and of course their full complement of scouts.

Speilman is a risk taker, but he is able to take big risks and be right more often that not. He has dealt a first and two third round picks for Jared Allen, and traded up in round 2-5 four times and selected two offensive rookies of the year. That is a record no one can over look. While Speilman has the final say, and the brain trust works Head coach Brad Childers. They have a very effective scouting staff, and over the last five years they have an above average record in scoring big talent in the draft.

In the time period this team has made 31 draft picks, and they have produced two pro bowlers. Nine of those picks are starters, and eight more are backups. Fourteen of those selected, have either left the league or are playing for other teams.
