Good Morning!

Hope your weekend is going great, I really enjoy the run up to the draft and the draft itself, even when I can’t figure out what or why the Vikings front office is doing. I followed the draft online here like I usually do and I know some DN’ers are not pleased, to put it mildly with some of the selections made by the Vikings management. Hawt taekes are welcome along with gifs in this open thread, personal attacks are not.

Around the DN since our last thread:

The Minnesota Vikings undrafted free agent tracker provided by Chris, check it out for all the latest rumor and signings of undrafted free agents.

Chris brings us the complete Minnesota Vikings 2018 Draft Class.

Vikings news from other sources:

From Vikings.com highlights of all the Vikings draft picks.

GM Rick Spielman says they will rely on the coaching staff to develop the young talent.

New Viking Jalyn Holmes is grateful for the fit with the Vikings.

Ade Aruna’s journey from Nigeria to the Vikings included guarding Andrew Wiggins and post college coaching from Vikings legend Keith Millard.

New Vikings draft pick Daniel Carlson’s long legs have helped with longer kicks.

LB Davante Downs was picking up groceries for his father when he learned he was selected with the 225th Pick.

There’s a whole bunch more, check it out.

We come to today’s media selection: Kansas with Carry on Wayward Son.

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!
