We’re kicking off another week of the NFL off-season. I’m glad baseball’s back!

Merry Monday, everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend. I got lots of indoor projects done at the house. I had plenty of time since winter doesn’t want to leave & we got a good bit of snow and cold, and they’re predicting a possible blizzard next weekend. The blizzard with snow and cold, not the blizzard with ice cream & peanut butter cup (my fave), unfortunately.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

MarkSP18 posted v4.08 of Vikings Mock.

The 2018 Daily Norseman Community Mock Draft resumes today!

Ron Yary is rated as one of the best #1 overall picks of all time, from Chris.

Chris brought us v6.0 of 2018 Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Database.

We’re up to number 13, with the Redskins’ pick in the 2018 Daily Norseman Community Mock Draft.

Vikings news from other sources and news from around the NFL.

1500ESPN puts the microscope on Marucie Hurst, DT out of Michigan.

Lots of weekend videos to watch in the media vault over at, it’s worth a look, there’s a couple interesting vids on there.

Courtney Cronin at ESPN looks at the Vikings’ top draft needs.

From’s MMQB, Gil Brandt breaks down the 2018 NFL Draft crop.

We come to today’s media selection.

Since winter is still in full force where I am, let’s watch people do dumb things on the snow & ice.

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 & tie one on. Don’t forget to tip your waitress, & try the chitlins.
