With the NFL Draft less than a week away, it's only fitting that teams around the league take a stroll down memory lane at their most notable successes. In regards to the Minnesota Vikings, one of their greatest picks in franchise history came in 1998 when they drafted Marshall wide receiver Randy Moss with the No. 21 overall pick. At the time, the selection was considered risky, but boy, did it pay dividends for the Vikings. Any Minnesota fan looking to get into the right state of mind for next week's festivities should check out this awesome Moss highlight montage.
As Vikings supporters will be quick to remember, Moss made a living out of making opposing defenders look silly. In eight years with the franchise, the Hall of Famer was named to five Pro Bowls and was a three-time First-Team All-Pro selection. On three separate occasions -- 1998, 2000, and 2003 -- Moss led the NFL in touchdown receptions with Minnesota.
In all, "The Freak" registered 587 receptions for 9,316 yards (15.9 yards per catch) and 92 touchdowns for the Vikings.
Like we said earlier: this is exactly what Minnesota natives need with the Draft just five days away. Moss was as good of a WR that's ever played in the NFL and he undoubtedly spent his best playing days with the Vikings.
