2018 Week 9 - Which College Players Are Future Vikings

New, comments
NCAA Football: Iowa State at Iowa Reese Strickland-USA TODAY Sports

Week 9 is upon us in college football. It has been an interesting season thus far. Alabama looks very tough. Clemson has one heck of a defensive line. Oklahoma looks scary on offense. The rest of the one loss teams are a bit of a toss up really. It depends on what week it is I suppose.

Some games and players that may be of interest and that may be future Vikings.

The ones in bold are players I like so far this year.

I may do a rankings of players later in the year. But there are plenty of sites that have these rankings and to be honest, that is where I get my information too.

As always, I will do a mock draft. Right now the fanspeak site has the Vikings at #26 which is about the same place where thehuddlereport.com has them.
