I don't know if the Vikings will be doing any more dealing now that Rick Spielman has his ten picks, but there you have what's going on.
Remember our rules for the Open Thread:
-No hugely oversized pictures
-No spoiling picks (though rumors and stuff are perfectly okay)
Here is Arif's Twitter feed, live from Winter Park.
So, there you go, ladies and gentlemen. This will probably be the last Open Thread of the 2015 NFL Draft for us, so let's watch how things conclude for the Vikings!
3:01 PM Central - The Vikings have grabbed another piece for up front, as they've selected Oklahoma offensive tackle Tyrus Thompson with the first of their two sixth-round picks. We have more on the Thompson selection right here.
3:15 PM Central - And with the second of their sixth-round picks, the Vikings have selected Louisville defensive lineman B.J. Dubose. We have more on the Dubose selection right here.
The Vikings' next pick is not scheduled to come until the seventh round at #228 overall. They're also slotted at #232.
4:05 PM - Really nice look at Tyrus Thompson from our friends at SB Nation's Oklahoma site, Crimson and Cream Machine.
5:05 PM - It actually happened some time ago, but the Vikings' final two picks are in. At #228, the Vikings took Alabama offensive lineman Austin Shepherd (who they introduced as a guard), and at #232 they took linebacker Edmond Robinson out of Newberry College. You can read more about Shepherd here, and more about Robinson here.
And that wraps it up for the 2015 NFL Draft for the Minnesota Vikings! Arif will be keeping track of the Undrafted Free Agent scramble right here for your reading pleasure. We're also updated our Vikings Twitter list with the newest members of the team, as well as our comprehensive Minnesota Vikings Draft Pick Database.
Thanks to everyone that came to The Daily Norseman and joined us for our draft coverage for this week. Now, we have the long, dark tea time of the offseason until Training Camp starts and the Vikings prepare to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in the Hall of Fame Game in August. We'll do our best to keep everyone entertained until then.
