Ladies and gentlemen, we’ve made it.
The 2021 NFL Draft will be held in Cleveland, Ohio, starting on Thursday night, 29 March. As we’ve done every year since the site’s inception, we will be doing everything we can to keep track of everything that the Minnesota Vikings are doing this weekend and making sure that you know who the newest members of the purple are going to be. We’ll have a quick analysis of all the picks as soon as they’re made, as well as a more in-depth analysis of the selections in the days following.
We’re even going to have a live show for the first round of the Draft, as Chris is going to join Vikings Report with Drew and Ted for a full night of fun and football on Thursday night. More on that and a link directly to the show when it happens.
