It’s a little on the late side, but yours truly has finally put together Version 3.0 of the most extensive listing of NFL Mock Drafts and their projections for the Minnesota Vikings. As I’ve said in previous installments, I generally try to get this out earlier on Saturday, but today’s post was interrupted by shopping trips and other stuff that I’m not going to bore you any further with.

This week, we’ve expanded our Mock Draft Database to a total of 60 mocks from across these vast interwebs of ours. Remember, we continue expanding until we eventually reach 100, and now that the first wave of free agency is over I’m assuming that a lot of places are going to focus more on the draft, so we’ll see a greater variety of mocks.

But, without any further ado, here’s the list of the 60 mocks that make up our Mock Draft Database for this week.

Offensive linemen continue to just crush the rest of the competition in this week’s Database, as they managed to collect 53 of the 60 total selections in this week’s Database. That’s 88.3% of all the selections, which is an increase of more than 2% over their share from last week.

One particular offensive lineman is just destroying the field to this point, and he’s the man that’s led the charge from the beginning in Oklahoma offensive lineman Cody Ford. This week, Ford picked up 19 of our 60 selections (31.7%), giving him a tremendous lead. The next-closest player is Alabama offensive tackle Jonah Williams, who is a distant second with eight selections this week (13.3%).

There’s a tie for third between Washington State offensive tackle Andre Dillard and North Carolina State center Garrett Bradbury, each of whom appeared six times in our Database this week (10% each). Dillard doubled his three selections from last week’s Database, while Bradbury actually saw his total fall from the seven selections he had in Version 2.0.

Kansas State star Dalton Risner is next in line with four selections (6.7%), while Greg Little of Mississippi and Florida’s Jawaan Taylor are just behind him with three selections apiece (5% each). Boston College guard Chris Lindstrom appears two times this week (3.3%), while West Virginia tackle Yodny Cajuste and Texas A&M center Erik McCoy each garnered one selection.

That leaves just seven selections for the rest of the field this week, and for the first time this year the second-highest total does not fall to the defensive linemen. Instead, two other positions are tied for the second spot. One of them is the linebacker position, where Michigan standout Devin Bush carried three selections this week (5%) to secure that spot.

The other one is the tight end position, where T.J. Hockenson saw his selection total go up this week, as he moved from one selection to two (3.3%). For the first time, however, Hockenson is not the only offensive skill position player in our Database. He’s not even the only tight end in our Database. He’s not even the only tight end from the University of Iowa in our Database. This week, he’s joined by the one player making his debut this week, Noah Fant, who picked up one selection (1.7%).

Yes, the defensive linemen have all but disappeared this week, as the lone d-lineman to appear in Version 3.0 of our Database his Houston defensive tackle Ed Oliver, who held the one single selection for the defensive line crew (1.7%). Clemson defensive end Clelin Ferrell, who appeared twice in our Database last week, appears zero times this week, dropping out of our chart. Also dropping out of our Database this week was Washington cornerback Byron Murphy, as Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle apparently realized the error of his ways and did not select a cornerback for the Vikings in their updated mock this week. Thank goodness for that.

So, here’s a look at the donut graph for this week. It looks a little different, because I thought it was a bit silly to have a legend on the right-hand side of the chart if I was going to have names and percentages by each slice of the pie anyway. As always, you may click to embiggen.

Finally, here are the trends for this week, as you can continue to see a whole lot of purple. . .and not a whole lot of everything else. . .dominating things this week.

That’s a look at the Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Database for this week, ladies and gentlemen. We’ll be back next week when we expand things again, this time to a total of 70 mock draft that will try to do their best to project what the Minnesota Vikings will be doing in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
