Good Morning!

Only two more weeks until the annual NFL draft, personally I’m ready to find out who the Viking select right now. At least those of you who follow baseball have something to do, the Twins won yesterday 9-8 over the Astros.

Around the DN since our last thread:

The Vikings preseason schedule was announced with Eric giving us the gouge on who the Vikings will face in the tune up games.

Chris posted Day 16 of the DN mock draft, Baltimore you’re on the clock.

Vikings news from other sources and news from around the league:

From Vikings.com they have twelve things to know about the Vikings preseason opponents.

Today’s lunch break series highlights Mel Kiper’s latest mock draft with the Vikings selecting a CB in the first round.

They also have three experts takes on the state of the Vikings defense.

Prospect profile, today is Notre Dame Guard Quenton Nelson, a player that would look great in purple, but I doubt will be available with the 30th pick.

At SB Nation an article that indicates the color rush uniforms on Thursday night game is no more according to Fox.

From NFL.com’s back to campus series, Texas OT Connor Williams writes a thank you letter to those who bullied him growing up.

We come to today’s media selection: Where did we get A-Aron from?
Here’s Key and Peele:

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 and tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, try the venison chili and as always, Welcome Aboard and Skol Vikings!
