One Day to the Draft: Greatest Vikings’ First-Round Pick, 1990-Present

One Day to the Draft: Greatest Vikings’ First-Round Pick, 1990-Present

Plenty of great names to be had here, too Just a few minutes ago, we did the first half of our look at past first-round draft picks of the Minnesota Vikings. That post spanned the time period from 1961 to 1989, and now we’re going to look at the group from 1990 to the present day. Just as there were some awfully impressive names on the first list, there are a lot of greats here as well. So, let’s not delay any further and get to them now. Daunte Culpepper, QB, Central Florida - A guy that a not-insignificant segment of Vikings’ fandom loved to hate, Culpepper is on the short list of...

One Day to the Draft: Greatest Vikings’ First Round Pick, 1961-1989

So many that we’re going to have to break this down Today is the day that we finish up our series of the greatest Minnesota Vikings’ draft picks in each round of the NFL Draft. Since there’s one day until the 2018 NFL Draft gets underway, we are looking at first-round picks. Now, as you’d expect, the Vikings have hit on a lot of first-round picks over the years, including plenty of all-time greats. There are so many, in fact, that we’re going to break this one into two separate posts. After doing some quick math, it appears that the midway point in Vikings’ history is 1989. So,...

Wednesday Open Thread: April 25, 2018

Tomorrow. Is. Draft. Day. Happy Wednesday, everyone! We just have to make it one more day, and draft day will be upon us. I’m excited to see how the first round plays out, who falls, who moves up the board at the last minute, etc. I expect the front office will hope to be in a spot where another team covets a player that the Vikings aren’t interested in, and rake in some picks to move back. Then again, maybe there’s a player that they REALLY like, but didn’t expect that player to make it out of the top 10. Maybe that player is still available at the 20th pick, I could see the...

RickSpeak: Draft Eve Edition

RickSpeak: Draft Eve Edition

When Rick Spielman talks, people listen. Some people interpret. Vikings GM Rick Spielman is a man in his element right now. Much like little kids love Christmas morning, Spielman lives for the NFL Draft. No, not because he gets to wheel and deal, and select players he thinks will help the Minnesota Vikings win football games. No, no no no no no. No sir. He literally gets paid to lie to the press, to other GM’s, and to you. Rick Spielman has money deposited into his account every week based on how well he can lie during this time of the year. It’s a great gig if you can get it. Lie,...

Yankees 8, Twins 3: Exactly what you thought was going to happen

Berrios falters, Twins lose again, forever, still. The Life of Tawny through the lens of 9 innings: In the 1st Miguel Sano walked and then Eduardo Escobar smacked a double that Aaron Judge mishandled allowing him to reach third and scoring Sano. Youth was still upon me, and I was ready to enjoy the future. In the 2nd Gary Sanchez hit a homerun to tie the game back up. Berrios seemed pretty solid still, thus despite a setback I let myself keep hope. In the 3rd a walk followed by back to back hits gave the Yankees the lead. The damage was minimal, and my life was still ahead of me. I...

Deals Could Help Vikings Draft

Deals Could Help Vikings Draft

The 2018 NFL Draft is just a couple days away, and it is shaping up to be a little more unpredictable than most. There are some significant divergences in opinions about several players the Vikings may have interest in, and another potential run on QBs could leave the Vikings with some interesting choices at #30. Six QBs could be drafted ahead of the Vikings first pick It seems almost a given that Sam Darnold, Josh Rosen, Baker Mayfield and Josh Allen will be drafted ahead of the Vikings first pick, by QB needy teams. But there are also a few other teams that may be looking to draft an...

Vikings’ Rick Spielman says no certainty No. 30 pick will be offensive lineman

Rick Spielman was named Vikings general manager in 2012 and selected tackle Matt Kalil with the first draft pick he had in that role. He hasn’t taken an offensive lineman in the first round since. Many believe that will change when Minnesota has the No. 30 pick in the NFL draft, which runs Thursday through […]
