Vikings | Team to have pre-draft visit with V. Young

Don Seeholzer, of the Pioneer Press, reports Texas QB Vince Young is scheduled for a pre-draft visit with the Minnesota Vikings Monday, April 17, according to his agent, Major Adams. Adams said Young's scheduled one-day visit isn't based on signals that the team is seriously considering moving up in the first round. "We don't have any indication of that," Adams said. "We just want to come in and talk to as many coaches and visit as many facilities as we can."

CULPEPPER TO MISS MOST OF THE YEAR?

As speculation continues regarding the question of whether Dolphins quarterback Daunte Culpepper will be ready at the start of the 2006 regular season, we're hearing increased rumblings that Culpepper might not be able to play at all this year.

Culpepper is recovering from three torn ligaments -- MCL, ACL, and PCL -- in his right knee, which occurred when he took a low hit from the side in an October 30 game between Culpepper's old team, the Vikings, and the Carolina Panthers.

The Dolphins sent a second-round pick to the Vikings last month for Culpepper, who rapidly fell out of favor in Minnesota via his decision to rehab in Florida, his desire for more a lot more money, and his propensity to send out e-mails to the media in his capacity as his own agent.

Meanwhile, the Fins are looking for a veteran backup quarterback. They've kicked the tires of Tommy Maddox and are in the running for Lions quarterback Joey Harrington.

Wow! That's a bit suprising.
I'm so anxious to see what we do in the draft.

:lol: I saw this on ESPN. It was funny because after all this and after the trade he hinted it. It was kind of like "... Oh, by the way, I'm not sure if I'll make the season opener."

I think hes talking about Culpepper, since he more than likely will miss the season opener and might not even play at all in 2006.

Wonder whats so wrong with Young that he's fallen out of favor as bad as Rodgers did last year. WOnder if he'll fall to us, which I think would be cool unless he's a total bust which I dont see happening.

Sid Hartman, of the Star Tribune, reports Minnesota Vikings owner Zygi Wilf said Scott Studwell, who has done an outstanding job as director of college scouting for the team, will continue in that position under the new ownership.

yeah i'd rather have a qb who can come in and play rather than daunte sit on the bench all year and use up a roster spot for nothing.

even if he's like vick, thats alright with me because Vick manages to get the wins. even when teams gameplan against him he manages to beat them with his athleticism. that being said, i still think he's the most overrated player in the league and a terrible passer, but he somehow gets the job done. If he were around at #17 i would take him in a heartbeat (unless of course for some reason Lienart is still around(now that i think about it if lienart slips to #17, that means that somethings wrong with him))

Studwell knows the game, knows the possitions and understands what small talents he should be looking for. Keeping him on the team was a very very smart move by Wilfy!!!


another one who knows what he's looking for and get those he wants!!
