Tuesday Open Thread: April 18, 2017

One more week plus two more days and the draft is finally here

Scott Studwell

Merry Tuesday, everyone!

Well, the draft is just over a week away, I cannot wait. Every year, it’s an excuse to eat way too much and hang out with fellow Vikings fans. Does anyone have plans for the draft?

Around the DN since our last open thread:

In the SB Nation NFL Writers Mock Draft, the Vikings selected Dan Feeney, a guard from Indiana.

The writers explain why they chose Dan Feeney.

Bill Barnwell found a potential Vikings trade partner.

Vikings news from other sources:

The Vikings are excited to be back at Winter Park for offseason workouts, per the Pioneer Press.

ESPN says that replacing Adrian Peterson will be a group effort.

Mike Zimmer had another eye surgery as the team started offseason workouts, per Matt Vensel at the Strib.


Eric Smith looks at Vikings offensive players with breakout potential.

Wobby talks about day one of offseason workouts.

Around the rest of the league:

From The Sporting News, Jameis Winston raves about training with Adrian Peterson.

We come to today’s media selection.

I don’t think there’s enough AC/DC being played these days, let’s change that.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can't disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it's sarcasm

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the tiger meat.
