Minnesota Vikings News and Links, 4/3

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Today marks exactly five weeks until the 2014 National Football League Draft. One day at a time, ladies and gentlemen. . .one day at a time.

Since the last time we brought you an Open Thread. . .

-Eric posed the question of whether or not it's still fun to be an NFL fan.

-Mark was at it again with his latest Mock Draft. Again, all of Mark's Mocks are in one place in this stream here.

-Ted made the case for the Vikings drafting Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins on 8 May.

From some other sources around the internet. . .

-The first pick is officially in for the 2014 SB Nation Bloggers Mock Draft, with Teddy Bridgewater going to the Houston Texans. Our pick will post on Monday morning. Most of you are (probably) going to hate it.

-New Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is looking forward to playing at TCF Bank Stadium for the next two seasons.

-Arif has another ridiculously detailed scouting report on Teddy Bridgewater.

-MinnPost takes a look at the most pressing issue facing the new Minnesota Vikings' stadium. I'm talking about. . .bird droppings.

The rules of the Open Thread are the same as they've ever been, ladies and gentlemen. . .no politics, no religion, no feeding of the trolls, keep the language relatively clean, and keep the language relatively work-safe.

For today's musical selection, we're going old school again.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for Thursday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day!
