The countdown to the 2019 NFL Draft in Nashville is now, officially, under 20 days, as 25 April is getting closer and closer. Since it’s Saturday, that means we have a new update to our Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Database and the projections from around the internet about what the purple could, potentially, do on Thursday of draft weekend.

This week, we’re up to 90 mock drafts from various sources, meaning that next week we will reach our full capacity of 100 mocks. There wasn’t an opportunity to eliminate any mocks this week, but there are still plenty that have been updated since we put this together last week.

So, without any further ado, here is this week’s Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Database.

While the offensive lineman have, once again, dominated the distribution of the selections, for the third consecutive week their percentage of the selections has actually gone down. This week, offensive linemen comprise 73 of our 90 picks, which is good for 81.1%. That’s down from last week’s figure of 83.75%, which was down from 85.7% the week before that.

Oklahoma guard Cody Ford is, again, crushing the field, as his name appears 31 times this week (34.44%), and Jonah Williams is a distant second with 14 selections (15.56%). Those two men make up exactly half of the selections in the entire Database for this week.

Washington State tackle Andre Dillard sits in third place this week with eight selections (8.89%), while North Carolina State center Garrett Bradbury has jumped into fourth place with six picks (6.67%). Kansas State guard Dalton Risner is just behind him with five selections this week (5.56%).

Boston College guard Chris Lindstrom sees his name pop up four times in our Database this week (4.44%), while Texas A&M center Erik McCoy appears twice (2.22%). There are three offensive linemen that each garnered one selection in this week’s update: Florida tackle Jawaan Taylor, Mississippi tackle Greg Little, and Washington tackle Kaleb McGary (1.11% each).

That means we have 17 picks that were not dedicated to offensive linemen this week, and for what I believe is the first time in this year’s Database, the tight end position finds itself in sole possession of second place. This week, the tight end position appears seven times in our Database, and all of the selections went to the contingent from Iowa. This week, it’s actually Noah Fant that leads at the position, as he appears four times in this week’s Database (4.44%). His teammate, T.J. Hockenson, appears three times (3.33%).

The defensive linemen came out of this week’s update with five selections, and most of those are contributed by Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins, who appears three times this week (3.33%). Two other interior linemen, Ed Oliver from Houston and Jeffrey Simmons of Mississippi State, picked up one selection each (1.11% each).

At the linebacker spot, Michigan linebacker Devin Bush remains Mr. Consistency, as he appears three times this week. . .just as he has in the previous four Database updates (2.22%). Lastly, the defensive backs earned multiple picks this week, as Washington cornerback Byron Murphy was selected twice this week (2.22%). Louisiana State cornerback Greedy Williams, who made his debut last week, makes his exit in this week’s update.

So, let’s move on to this week’s graphics, shall we? As always, we start with the donut graph, which breaks down just the selections from this week’s update. You may click on the graphic to embiggen it.

To go along with that, we have the “Jell-o Salad” graph, which allows us to see all the trends that we’ve witnessed in our Database over the past seven weeks. You can click to embiggen this one as well.

That’s our Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Database for this week, folks! Only two more of these to go before the actual NFL Draft occurs, and next week we’ll be all the way up to our target of 100 mocks. Be there!
