Welcome Aboard Mike Hughes!

Good Morning!

The first round of the 2018 draft is in the books and it was fairly exciting with trades and players sliding farther than I thought they would. I was among the group that was surprised the Vikings did not select an offensive lineman in the first round, but I’m going to put my trust in the group that actually selects players for the Vikings. I am looking forward to the second and third round today, still some very good players on the board. Just a reminder, I won’t be posting a weekend thread until Sunday due to the draft.

Around the DN since our last thread:

Chris bring us the news the Vikings selected CB Mike Hughes from UCF, it’s going to take me a while to warm up to this pick.

Vikings news from other sources and league news:

From Vikings.com they highlight the selection of CB Mike Hughes.

Vikings Announce 2018 Training Camp Start Dates and New Ticket Policy, I’ll probably post this one again.

Wobby caught up with Vikings CB Xavier Rhodes at the draft in Dallas.

From NFL.com they have a draft tracker with all of the players selected last night.

We come to today’s media selection: Rush with Tom Sawyer

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!
