Game 545 | April 20, 1999 | Frank Gilliam
The Minnesota Vikings were nonparticipants in the NFL draft in the early 1990s because of the Herschel Walker trade. By the end of the decade, the draft played a major role in reshaping and rebuilding the team. As the team's Vice President of Player Personnel, Gilliam worked with coach Dennis Green on the decision to draft Randy Moss with the team's first pick in the 1998 draft and Daunte Culpepper in the first found in 1999. Gilliam explained to Dunkers how the team evaluated college talent and prepared for the draft.
