2014 Daily Norseman Big Board: Spots 41-45

Jeff Zelevansky

We've got the top 40 spots filled on our 2014 Daily Norseman Big Board! Here are the next five players onto the list:

Player Name 36 37 38 39 40 Total
Stephon Tuitt, DT, Notre Dame 43 29 33 28 35 521
Gabe Jackson, OG, Mississippi State 43 31 32 27 16 505
Odell Beckham, WR, Louisiana State 46 25 28 19 18 470
Christian Jones, OLB, Florida State 11 22 29 18 23 289
Brandin Cooks, WR, Oregon State 20 27 13 10 11 278

It was a close race this time around, as Cooks beat out the next player in line by just three points. Who was it? Not telling.

That means our entire top 40 looks like this:

1 Khalil Mack LB Buffalo
2 Jadeveon Clowney DE South Carolina
3 Teddy Bridgewater QB Louisville
4 Sammy Watkins WR Clemson
5 Johnny Manziel QB Texas A&M

36 Stephon Tuitt DT Notre Dame
37 Gabe Jackson G Mississippi State
38 Odell Beckham WR Louisiana State
39 Christian Jones LB Florida State
40 Brandin Cooks WR Oregon State

Now we're moving on to spots 41-45 on the big board, and the rules will remain the same.

Remember, this is not a mock draft and not a projection of what you think other teams will do or who you think will be available. Basically, ask yourself this question:

"If the Minnesota Vikings were on the clock in the 2014 NFL Draft and they could select any of these players, who would I want them to take?"

I understand that the MtD rankings aren't perfect, but for the most part they're pretty darn good, and it's the easiest list for us to use.

You will get to rank your Top 5 players from the list available. Points will be allotted as follows:

First-place vote = 5 points
Second-place vote = 4 points
Third-place vote = 3 points
Fourth-place vote = 2 points
Fifth-place vote = 1 point

After we determine who winds up in spots 41-45 on our big board, those names will be removed and replaced with the next five names on the Mocking the Draft rankings.

So, with that, feel free to have at it to determine who sits in spots 41-45 on our big board!
