Well, ladies and gentlemen, after all of the mock drafts and the scouting combine and the speculation and conjecture and everything else. . .to borrow from what’s probably the most famous program ever to be centered in the Twin Cities. . .

WE’RE GONNA MAKE IT AFTER ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!

Yes, we have finally gotten to the 2018 NFL Draft, folks! Tomorrow is the day that we will learn who the Minnesota Vikings (and 31 teams that are significantly less important) will be pulling from the college ranks to add to their franchises. So, how can you keep track of all of the action from Dallas and what the Minnesota Vikings are doing?

I mean, other than wearing out the F5 key on your keyboard here at The Daily Norseman, which you should be doing anyway.

Well, that’s what we’re here to provide you with. Here is the full listing of ways that you can keep track of the 2018 NFL Draft.

Current Minnesota Vikings Draft Picks

  • Round 1, Pick #30
  • Round 2, Pick #30 (Pick #62 overall)
  • Round 3, Pick #30 (Pick #94 overall)

When will the Vikings probably be picking: Well, if you figure about ten minutes for the ceremonial booing of Roger Goodell to start the festivities, if the 29 teams before the Vikings all take the maximum of ten minutes to make their pick, the Vikings will be on the clock right around midnight Central time. I would not expect it to take that long, but it probably won’t be before 11:00 PM Central, either. Make sure you have adequate snacks and beverages.
