Arif's Final Overall Vikings Big Board

Take a look at Arif's final rankings for players entering the draft

Russ Isabella-US PRESSWIRE

I've published a final big board, which can either be organized by position or looked at wholly by itself. The guiding principle of the board is simply whether or not I feel the Vikings should pick a particular player over another. That is, if these players fell to the Vikings and all players above them were off the board, who would I prefer they pick?

That means this board has been modified to account for need and overall talent. At the top of the board are Chance Warmack and Star Lotulelei. That means, if the Vikings were given a choice between one of those two at Pick 23 and a whole host of other players, I'd rather they pick one of those two than anyone else. The only exception are kickers, who I rank regardless of need.

The top 50 are below. Check out all 350 (I will add more as the day progresses) at this link.
