Hi kids, DN is live at the Sid Hartman media center for tonight's draft. Immediately behind me would be the Star Chamber of Vikings beat writer knowledge--Tom Pelissero, Chip Scoggins, Kevin Seifert, Judd Zulgad, and Jim Souhan. Even though I've done this before, I still feel like a kid eating at the adult table on Thanksgiving. Let's hope the luck doesn't run out.
Eric is on his way over and checking in soon, but consider this your open thread for Round 1. Some things to consider:
Draft begins: 7:00 PM CST.
On the Clock: Indianapolis and Washington. Those picks are in the bag, so expect the intrigue and speculation to run rampant the closer we get to the Vikes being on the clock, which could come pretty quick once this thing gets rolling.
Last minute thought: I still believe that the Vikes will end up with Matt Kalil. It's the obvious, most logical choice...unless it isn't.
As we hear rumors and things of that nature, we'll post them here or on Twitter. Enjoy, and SKOL VIKES!
