There are a couple of new names on the board this week, as well as a couple of players who dropped out.

We start at the wide receiver position, where Teddy Bridgewater's former teammate continues to just destroy the rest of the field. In this most recent database, of the 40 mock drafts we've included, exactly half of them are calling for the Minnesota Vikings to select DeVante Parker, the wide receiver out of Louisville. West Virginia wide receiver Kevin White also received seven picks (17.5%), giving the wide receiver position a 67.5% piece of the pie. . .or, in our case, donut. . .in this week's database.

The offensive line position came up with six selections in this week's database, giving them a 15% share. That also means that both of the wide receivers in this week's database received more votes individually than any other position group got in total. Brandon Scherff of Iowa and La'El Collins of Louisiana State led the way with two votes each (5%), while T.J. Clemmings of Pitt and Ereck Flowers from "The U" each got one selection (2.5%).

Danny Shelton, the Washington defensive tackle, continues to be the lone defensive lineman in the database, though he doubled his number of selections this week from 1 to 2 (5%). Landon Collins out of Alabama is the only safety in the database to this point, and I'd be shocked if he didn't stay that way. He also went from one selection to two in this week's database (5%), as did the lone cornerback on our list this week, Michigan State product Trae Waynes (5%). Last, but not least, Shelton's Washington teammate, Shaq Thompson, continues to hold it down for the linebackers with one selection (2.5%).

We had one new name in the database this week, as Flowers made his first appearance on our list. We had two players drop out, as Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper and Stanford offensive tackle Andrus Peat do not appear in any of this week's 40 mocks.

Here is your donut graph for this week, where you can see just how ridiculously large DeVante Parker's share is this week.

Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Database v1.0

I've decided we're going to start with the "Jell-o Salad" trend graph next week, since two weeks isn't really enough for a decent "trend," either.

But, there is your Mock Draft Database for this week, ladies and gentlemen. We'll be back with an update to this next Saturday, when we'll effort to get ourselves up to 50 different mocks. Can DeVante Parker continue his dominance of the field? How much of an effect will the Combine have after everything is in the books? We'll find out next weekend.
