Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 4/28

We'll blame Monday for today's thread being late.

Mondays blow chunks.  Lots of folks had to deal with some pretty severe weather over the weekend, and now they have to add 'go to work because it's Monday' on top of that.  Hope everyone is safe, wherever you are.  SInce we last brought you an open thread.:

Mark has his most recent mock draft out.

We're up to spots 51-55 on the Daily Norseman Big Board. And because it's Monday, and we're going to use this excuse like Steven Hawking uses a voice synthesizer, the next iteration of the Big Board will also be delayed.

Shariff Floyd is doing things, like giving up bacon and being named the lead plaintiff in a class action lawsuit.  If I had to give up bacon, I'd sue somebody, too.  What's that? Those two things aren't related? Oh.  My bad.

Mike Mayock thinks Teddy Bridgewater isn't s first rounder.  He also thinks the earth is flat.

Here's the latest on our mock draft database, Mayocks' opinion be damned.

Finally, Arif links to some stuff, and the latest DN podcast.

From elsewhere around the web:

Kirby Wilson spent 45 days in intensive care due to a house fire in 2012.

When the draft hits, expect the unexpected.

'Ghost Of Christian Ponder Pick'. Heeeeeeeere we go.

This guy says  the Vikings have options after round one for quarterback.  But someone on here not too long ago showed a success rate for quarterbacks taken after round one, and the success rate really isn't all that great.  I can't find the link, but if someone else can, please feel free to post it in the comments.

Ben Goessling does a Q and A. Some good stuff in there.

Since there's so many Game of Thrones fans here, maybe this extended opening theme will brighten your day.

This is the greatest opening theme show song.  Ever.  Open thread rules remain the same--no politics, no religion, no feeding of the trolls, use the spoiler tags for TV show stuff and swearing, and keep the GIFS relatively clean.

Enjoy your Monday.
