Worst Minnesota pro drafts of the 2000s:

2011 Twins: One player among 33 signed has reached the Twins: Jason Wheeler, here 72 hours last week before being cut and then sold for a few bucks to the Dodgers.

2005 Vikings: They took Troy Williamson, the replacement for Randy Moss, and Erasmus James, a much-needed sack master. No wonder it was Mike Tice's last year.

2009 Timberwolves: Ndubi Ebi, Wesley Johnson, et al … nothing can top taking point guards at Nos. 5 and 6 without either one being Stephen Curry.
