2016 NFL Draft: Day 3 Open Thread

New, comments
Chuck Anderson-USA TODAY Sports

Ladies and gentlemen, we have reached the third and final day of the 2016 NFL Draft, and the action should pick up quite a bit for the Minnesota Vikings today. Things are going to get underway in Chicago in about an hour, and after making just two selections in the draft's first two days, they are slated to make six on Day 3. Here is a list of the picks they have remaining as it stands right now:

Round Pick Overall How Acquired
4 23 121 Own selection
5 23 160 Own selection
6 5 180 Acquired from San Francisco 49ers (Gerald Hodges trade)
6 11 186 Acquired from Miami Dolphins (draft day deal)
7 19 240 Acquired from Buffalo Bills (Matt Cassel trade)
7 23 244 Own selection

We've seen a lot of action in the Open Threads over the past couple of days, and I'm sure that today will be no exception. Once again, when one of these threads gets to about 1,000 comments, we'll do our best to get another one opened quickly so things don't bog down.

The regular Open Thread rules still apply, and in addition. . .NO GIFs IN THIS THREAD!! We're probably going to have people coming from across the interwebs to get their information, and we don't need a million GIFs bogging things down.

The folks from the mothership have given us this handy pick tracker to follow along with the action. Check it out. . .is it not nifty?

In addition, we've got Eric at Winter Park to keep track of all of the action. There's a pretty good chance that he's going to be doing some sort of FaceBook Live update from Winter Park, which you'll be able to catch on our FaceBook page (and that we'll eventually embed here). For now, however, here is his Twitter feed.

And even though Arif is at Winter Park as a writer for one of the 27 other places he currently writes for, we'll include his insights here as well.

That should be enough to overload you with information going forward, eh? I'll also be tweeting away from the main Daily Norseman account (but I won't throw another widget in here), and may even throw in the occasional update.

Once our picks come in, we will have them on the front page of the site, in our 2016 Draft Section, and in the 2016 NFL Draft Stream we're using for our coverage this weekend. Also, if this Open Thread starts to bog down a bit, we will start another in the most expedient manner we can.

We've finally made it, everybody. Welcome to the 2016 NFL Draft! What are the Minnesota Vikings going to do? In mere hours, we'll all finally have the answer.
