Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Database v10.0

Handout

Only one (possibly two) more of these before we get to the actual draft, everybody! Again, I'll have to see if I can find time to work another one in either the day before or the day of the actual draft. There will be one next Saturday, however, for sure.

We've increased our number of mock drafts to 95 with this week's database, which you can see below.

So, what does everything point to for the Minnesota Vikings this time around? Well, as you could probably imagine. . .not a whole lot of change.

Quarterback is, again, the most dominant position, with 68 of the 95 selections (71.6%) in this week's edition going to signal callers. Teddy "Theodore" Bridgewater continues to lead the way with 26 selections (27.4%), with Johnny Mondo Delicious Purple Ice Cream Football Manziel coming in second with 16 picks (16.8%). Derek "Baby You Can Drive My" Carr and Blake "No, My Son Is Also Named" Bortles have fallen into a tie in this week's database, each being selected 13 times (13.7% each).

Linebackers find themselves in second place again, this week garnering 19 overall selections (20%). UCLA's Anthony Barr has taken back the lead at the position with eight selections (8.4%), while Buffalo's Khalil Mack and Alabama's C.J. Mosley have maintained their vote totals from last week with six (6.3%) and five (5.3%) selections respectively.

Only two other players have multiple selections in this week's edition of our Mock Draft database, with Alabama safety Ha'Sean Clinton-Dix and Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins coming out with two selections each (2.1%). Four other players came out this week with one one vote. . .three cornerbacks (TCU's Jason Verrett, Oklahoma State's Justin Gilbert, and Virginia Tech's Kyle Fuller) and one wide receiver (Texas A&M's Mike Evans). There are no defensive ends or defensive tackles represented in this week's version of the Mock Draft Database.
