Good Morning!

Well the draft is sadly over, it was a lot of fun for me even though the Vikings didn’t make the selections I thought they should have, then again no one in the Vikings organization asked for my input. That’s okay, what makes this fun during the offseason for me is analyzing the draft picks and the potential roster going forward.

Around the DN since our last thread:

Wludford breaks down Jayln Holmes and Hercules Mata’afa football skills, good luck to both of them in the coming season.

Per Chris, a lot of NFL executives like the selection of Mike Holmes by the Vikings.

Vikings news from other sources and other league news:

From GM Rick Spielman is excited for rookie mini-camp.

At the NFL network, post draft power rankings.

From SB Nation, the NFL proposal to make kickoffs safer could also make them more exciting.

Geoff Schwartz newest post at SB Nation, the biggest mistakes of the 2018 NFL Draft.

We come to today’s media selection: Kid Rock with “All Summer Long”

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!
