We have a new version of your Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Database for you to peruse this Saturday morning, and we are now officially up to 60 different looks at what the Minnesota Vikings will potentially be doing on draft day. And while we've had the same leader that we've had since the start this draft season, the gap between first and second place has closed significantly since last week. Just how much?

Well, here's a look at the table for this week, sorted by the most recently updated mock draft.

So how does everything break down this week?

Well, the wide receivers are still leading the way in this week's database, but not by quite as much. Pass catchers make up 25 of our 60 selections this week (41.7%), and DeVante Parker still leads all players overall with 17 selections (28.3%). The other two receivers in our database this week both ended up with the same number of selections, but they're trending different directions. Both Amari Cooper and Kevin White ended up with four selections (6.7% each), but Cooper got there by doubling his selections from two to four, while White lost two selections from the six he had last week.

The defensive backs have roared into second place this week, gathering 17 overall selections (28.3%). This came largely on the strength of Michigan State cornerback Trae Waynes, who made a huge jump from six last week to 15 this week (25%). He's now making a serious challenge to Parker's perch in the top spot. Landon Collins kept his pattern going, as he's gone from one selection to two, then back to one, and once again to two this week (3.3%).

Offensive linemen increased their holdings to 11 selections this week (18.3%). The new leader among offensive linemen is La'el Collins, who moved from three selections last week to four this week (6.7%). Brandon Scherff held steady with three selections (5%), and Andrus Peat double up this week, grabbing two selections (3.3%). T.J. Clemmings and Ereck Flowers each held on with one selection this week (1.7%).

The defensive line still accounts for four selections (6.7%), as both Shane Ray and Danny Shelton held on to the two selections they got last week (3.3% each). And once again last, but once again not least, Shaq Thompson continues to be the lone linebacker in the database this week, but increase his selection total for the second straight week, as he's now been tabbed three times (5%).

There were no new additions to this week's database, and the lone name to drop out this week is Dante Fowler.

So, let's put this into graphic form, shall we? We'll start with the donut graph that represents this week's selections, and you can see that we now have two big chunks that are nearly the same size.

And that brings us to our Jell-o salad graph, where you can see just how much the fortunes of Trae Waynes have jumped in the past seven days.
