The leader in the clubhouse to be the first round pick of the Minnesota Vikings is still Tennessee wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson, who was again taken in eight different mocks. Baylor's Terrance Williams has made a big jump into the second spot, garnering five votes this week. Cal's Keenan Allen and Missouri's Sheldon Richardson come in tied for third with four selections each. There are two new additions to this week's group as well, as Alabama's Jesse Williams and Oregon's Jordan Poyer have found their way into the list via different mocks.
This week, we have two. . .yes, TWO. . .different charts for you. The first one is the "donut" chart that I put together last week. The colors are different from what they were last week. . .that will be explained after the second chart.
You'll have to click on it to make it full-sized.
The other one was sent to me by purpledork. His Excel-fu is obviously much stronger than mine, and he put together a chart that will allow us to track the trends from week to week. He also color-coded his chart by position group, which is what I've done on the donut chart up there as well. Wide receivers are depicted in various shades of blue, defensive tackles in shades of red, defensive backs in green, and linebackers. . .or, in this case, linebacker, since only Alec Ogletree has gotten any picks for the Vikings here. . .are in orange.
For purposes of making the chart not look silly, I've put the numbers for Weeks 3-10 at the same number as Week 2. That way, the trend for everyone doesn't just drop off the map. As the weeks go by, you'll be able to track people rising, falling, appearing, and disappearing. Big thanks to purpledork for sending that in to me. Here it is.
Again, click on the picture to blow it up to a larger size.
A couple of the mocks, as you can see, have the Vikings taking receivers in the second and third rounds. Apparently those folks think the Vikings have a pretty serious problem at that particular position. And, well, they're right. They do.
Any of the mocks above that you find particularly eye-catching? Talk about it in ye olde comments section here.
