New, comments

We've reached the end of another round of voting on our 2016 Daily Norseman Big Board, and with the end of this round we've completed a Top 50 of draftable NFL prospects for the Minnesota Vikings.

As has been the case for most of this process, the defensive side of the ball took charge in this round, as four of the five players we're adding to our list play on the defensive side of the ball. Topping the list this time around are a couple of safeties. The leader this time around was Duke safety Jeremy Cash, and he was followed by Boise State safety Darian Thompson.

The lone offensive player from this session, Notre Dame center Nick Martin, will be listed at #48 on our list of prospects. Right behind him are Mississippi State defensive tackle Chris Jones and Virginia Tech cornerback Kendall Fuller to round out our Top 50.

Here is how the voting went this time around:

DN Big Board Spots 46-50
