We're to the halfway point in our Minnesota Vikings Draft Survivor contest, ladies and gentlemen. . .we've eliminated six prospective Vikings' draft picks, and we'll eliminate six more before a winner is declared. Thus far, the following prospects have been eliminated.
Round 1 - Melvin Gordon, RB, Wisconsin
Round 2 - Ereck Flowers, OT, Miami (FL)
Round 3 - Andrus Peat, OT, Stanford
Round 4 - Shane Ray, DE, Missouri
Round 5 - Shaq Thompson, LB, Washington
Round 6 - Landon Collins, S, Alabama
That means that seven names remain, and those names all fit neatly into three different positions. We have three wide receivers left in the pool (the "Big Three" of Amari Cooper, DeVante Parker, and Kevin White), two offensive linemen (La'el Collins and Brandon Scherff), and two cornerbacks (Marcus Peters and Trae Waynes).
Once again, you're not voting for your favorite prospect in this contest. . .you're voting for the prospect you'd like to see removed from consideration by virtual Rick Spielman and the rest of the Vikings' front office.
So, with that, let's get on to the second half of our Minnesota Vikings Draft Survivor contest!
