It’s Thorsday and 1st Round of the Draft Day!

NFL: Super Bowl LII-Philadelphia Eagles vs New England Patriots John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Good Morning!

It’s the day I’ve been looking forward to since the end of the season, draft day! Most years I’m able to watch a lot of film and pick players I think would be a good fit for our favorite football team, this year was different because of work and some life stuff interfering with my fun. I was only able to look at players in the first three rounds likely to fall and/fit with the Vikings, but I’m still excited for the draft. I’ll put my personal preference for the 1st round pick in the comments today.

Around the DN since our last thread:

How are you going to keep up with the Vikings draft? Chris has your gouge for television, radio, streaming and more.

Are you entertained? A seven round mock draft by Saxyprince.

Speaking of mock drafts, Ted Mock 6.0 Mocks out for Harambe with an OSU homer touch at the end.

We’re finally at the end (close enough) of the Daily Norseman Mock Draft written by Chris, Your Minnesota Vikings are on the clock!

Chris also brought us One Day to the Draft: the Greatest 1st Round Selection, 1961-1989 and One Day to the Draft: the Greatest 1st Round Selection, 1990 to present.

Also, Norse Code Podcast Episode 231: NFL Draft Appetizer with Climbing the Pocket’s Jordan Reid, give it a listen.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Mock Madness 7.0, a compilation of expert picks throughout the league for the Vikings.

Cousins, Diggs, Rudolph, Spielman and Surprise by Zimmer Highlight Radio Sessions.

From their lunch break series, former Vikings Keith Millard and Robert Griffith will announce the Vikings draft picks in the second and third rounds.

Experts assess the Vikings chances of trading back from the #30 pick, it’s probably directly proportionate to how late I stay up.

We come to today’s media selection: AC/DC For Those About to Rock

-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags

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!
