Good morning Horners! Welcome to the Good Morning Gjallarhorn pre-draft show featuring Drew Bunting’s Big Board. We are calling this Unicorn Hunting Part 2. “Why that?” you ask. As Ted Glover wrote in Daily Norseman piece, Unicorn Hunting, that the Minnesota Vikings need to hit on the first 5 picks do to the need for starters in a lot pf positions. The probability of the happening historically rates up there with odds of finding a unicorn. Don’t be depressed though, because Drew has done the work to find those players that the Vikings can take to achieve that goal.

Unicorn Hunting Pt 1 can be found here: Unicorn Hunting.

Drew spends hours, weeks and months scouring the web watching as much tape as he can. He assembles a big board every year and this year’s he is super pumped up over this class. In the show he focuses on players specifically as they could fit onto your Vikings. We go through all the positions less the specialists. The Vikes have them locked in and grabbing them in the draft is usually a waste. Ted, Dave and Drew make their first pick predictions for the purple, and shockingly, as wide open as are the need for the team, they pick different players. Watch or listen to find out who. So, let’s go! Where do your favorite players fall on the board?

NFL: APR 27 2018 NFL Draft
This will probably be the most interesting draft in our lives. It will be fully digital, and teams have less to go on, so all that game tape is so much more important this year.
