Happy Monday, everyone!

Draft week is finally here, so we should be done with mock drafts by Friday. They’ll fire up for next year’s draft sometime around Monday.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Chris resets the Vikings’ depth chart at the offensive tackle position. He did the same for the defensive tackle position.

Chris looks at potential offensive tackle targets for the Vikings, and also at the defensive tackle targets.

MarkSP18 posted his Vikings Mock 04.22.17.

Ted took a look at the 48th overall pick.

Vikings news from other sources:

Chris Thomasson at the Pioneer Press looks at draft options at RB.

Matt Vensel at the Strib highlights the Vikings’ long line of struggles drafting offensive linemen.

Over at, Craig Peters takes a look at Vikings schedule rematches after the bye week, and Lindsey Young has a prospect profile on Clemson CB Cordrea Tankersley.

Around the rest of the league:

Bill Parcells applauds Tony Romo for retiring, from the Sporting News.

Also from The Sporting News, draft prospect Caleb Brantley was charged with battery after an alleged fight.

From, Glen Coffee is attempting a comeback after serving our country in the U.S. Army. Best of luck to him!

We come to our media selection.

I think Mike Tyson is one of the best fighters to step in the ring, here is a collection of his knockouts, this dude was unstoppable when he was at his peak.

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
-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.
