Hours of anticipation led to something of an anti-climax, when the Vikings traded the 30th overall pick to the Detroit Lions.
Many had speculated the Vikings would indeed trade out of the first round entirely, given the lack of an obvious big-time guy to fill one of their needs.
Others thought the Vikes might take sliding quarterback Jimmy Clausen. But, like every other team in the first round, the Vikes are apparently not that impressed with what Clausen brings to the table.
So, now the Vikings will draft twice in the second round, once early, once late. They also add an extra fourth round pick from Detroit.
And all that anticipation will transfer over till tomorrow, when the Vikes will finally make their first selection.
Dang, the draft sure is boring when you finish as one of the top 3 teams. I envy all those loser teams who got to pick way up in the top spots.
