Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Database v9.0

Kevin C. Cox

This is going to be a slightly more abbreviated version of the database for this week. My apologies for that. We've got two or three more of these before the real NFL Draft (depending on whether I can squeeze one in on draft day or not), and I'll hopefully be able to include some more detail in those.

In any case, we're up to 90 mock drafts in our database, and here they are. They are sorted by how recently they've updated.
