It's Saturday, and that means it's time for the latest installment of the Daily Norseman's 2013 NFL Mock Draft Database. Woo-hoo!
We've only added one more draft this week, bringing our total up to 47. We have three new names in this week's database. Those players are North Carolina defensive tackle Sylvester Williams, Florida State cornerback Xavier Rhodes, and Connecticut cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson. Arizona State defensive tackle Will Sutton has dropped out after one week in the database.
Overall, we've seen 21 different players mocked to the Vikings in the first round over the first four weeks of our database. Of those 21 players, 17 appear in this week's database. The four that do not appear are the aforementioned Will Sutton, Southern Cal wide receiver Robert Woods (not in the first round, anyway), Michigan State cornerback Johnny Adams, and Oregon STATE (got it right that time) cornerback Jordan Poyer.
Tennessee wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson still leads the field with nine selections, while California's Keenan Allen is right behind him with eight selections. Of the 47 mocks in this week's database, 29 of them have the Vikings taking a wide receiver, 13 of them trend toward defensive tackle, 3 of them have the Vikings taking a cornerback, and 2 see the Vikings drafting a linebacker (specifically Georgia's Alec Ogletree).
Without any further ado, let's take a look at what everything says this week.
