So that right there means they are full of you know what when they say they drafted him because of skill. They had a much better player on their list, but chose Nanne for his name and to play to Minnesotans (in my opinion). Waste of a 7th round pick!
If you go on to his Dad's reasoning for those statements, he said he was concerned about him being drafted to the hometown team more than anything, not that he was surprised he was drafted period.
