We've gotten to another Friday, ladies and gentlemen. We've got Conference Championship games this weekend, and some have a three-day weekend to look forward to, which is nice.

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

-Mel Kiper. . .dramatic pause. . .draft expert has put out his first mock draft of 2015.

-We continue our look through the roster with the running back position. Certainly no controversy there.

-The Minnesota Vikings have signed someone named Carter from the CFL ranks, as expected.

-The NFL will be hosting a "Veteran Combine" prior to the Owners Meetings in March for representatives of all the teams.

There isn't a whole lot else going on in Vikingland at the present time, so we'll just leave you with those links for now.

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 bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if necessary), and keep the pictures work-safe and appropriately-sized.

Your entertainment for today's Open Thread.

It's funny. It's funny because it's an oversized hat.

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open for this Friday, ladies and gentlemen. Enjoy the rest of your day, and we'll have more for you later on.
