The Vikings shared this funny clip on Twitter, in which draft analyst Mel Kiper had a few concerns about Randy Moss when the Vikings took a chance on the talented receiver from Marshall.

He didn’t play against the highest level of competition in college. He disappeared in a big game after hitting a home run on the first play from scrimmage. He struggled getting off the line a bit and his route running was a little sloppy. And, you know, there was the off-the-field stuff.

Let this inform us that sometimes the “concerns” can be a problem and other times they don’t amount to much.

Good tweet, Vikings.

    I try to not get too caught up in all the pre-draft drama. Many in the national press really don’t know much about what goes on in MN and they prove that on a daily basis with some of their comments. It’s ultimately another case where the media becomes the story rather that simply reporting on it. They also have a less than stellar record predicting which prospect will go to which team and are even worse at predicting who will ultimately shine in the NFL. I’ll stick to MN writers who know what’s going up north. SKOL Vikings!

    These are the next kind of thing Mel Kiper will be reporting on once Mixon is drafted ~ I want post the link to the video of him hitting the girl in college ~ I believed Mixon was in for a big time drop on draft day ~ Now even moreso ~ True or not the question is will team take the time to look into the fact as some teams had already pull him off their draft boards ~
