2019 NFL Draft: First round discussion

It’s finally here! Ladies and gentlemen. . .we’ve made it! Yes, in less than 30 minutes, the 2019 NFL Draft is going to be upon us, live and in living color from Nashville, Tennessee. This is the place for everyone to talk about what’s going on with the Minnesota Vikings in the first round of the draft, as well as what’s going on with the 31 teams that don’t matter nearly as much. I’ll be commenting on the Twitter machine throughout the first round, and you can see all of that right here.

Spielman should let Gary Kubiak make Vikings offensive draft decisions

This draft is easily the most important of the Zimmer Era. To improve chances of success, the general manager of the Minnesota Vikings should listen carefully to the team’s new assistant coach as they decide on their new offensive players. Defensively, Rick Spielman has hit some solid targets in the NFL draft. He has chosen […] Spielman should let Gary Kubiak make Vikings offensive draft decisions - The Viking Age - The Viking Age - A Minnesota Vikings Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and more.

Breer: “Keep an eye out” for a potential Kyle Rudolph trade

The Sports Illustrated writer is rounding up some rumors We’re just a couple of hours away from the start of the 2019 NFL Draft, and there are rumors swirling around everywhere. There haven’t been many involving the Minnesota Vikings to this point, but now there’s one out there from a reliable source that bears watching. Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated is rounding up some of the rumors that he’s hearing as we approach the start of the festivities in Nashville, and had this to say about our favorite football team: The Vikings may wind up getting calls on veteran...

“Final” mock drafts across the internet show focus on offensive line for Vikings

“Final” mock drafts across the internet show focus on offensive line for Vikings

It’s like there’s a need or something While we did bring you the final installment of this year’s Mock Draft Database late last night (or early this morning, whenever you may have seen it), there are some folks that are getting their “final” mock drafts in just under the wire, with the 2019 NFL Draft set to get underway in less than five hours. We’re going to bring you a few of them here, and probably add a few more later on, but these are some of the bigger names in the draft world doing their last projections. What do they have for the Minnesota Vikings? Well, you’re...

Eight Vikings Draft Predictions

Eight Vikings Draft Predictions

It’s time for the NFL Draft and here are some predictions for the Vikings over the next three days: Cody Ford, Jawaan Taylor and Andre Dillard Are Taken Ahead of the Vikings Jawaan Taylor going ahead of the Vikings isn’t much of a surprise, and Dillard wouldn’t be a big surprise either. But there are a couple teams ahead of the Vikings that reportedly really like Cody Ford, so don’t be surprised if he’s taken too when the Vikings get on the clock at #18. The Vikings Don’t Take Garrett Bradbury at #18 Bradbury (and Cody Ford) have been mocked to the Vikings the most, especially...

The top three players the Vikings should choose at 18.

The top three players the Vikings should choose at 18.

Differing positions, same idea. Football at just about every level is determined by three units on the field: quarterback, offensive line, and defensive line. Notice the last four teams remaining in last year’s playoffs: the four best teams at the line of scrimmage. Take it a step further and look at the Super Bowl: New England was the best coached team on the offensive and defensive line, and the Rams had arguably the highest level of talent on both sides as well. Now, look at the Vikings comparatively to both teams. Other than Aaron Donald, neither team has close to the level of talent...

Mark’s Final Vikings 2019 Mock Draft

Mark’s Final Vikings 2019 Mock Draft

One last projection for the Vikings from our resident draft scientist Well, after all the mocks it is time for one last one for the record. I do so many that I very rarely come back and say I was right about any picks. How could I when I practically pick every option in the mocks? I realize that if I want to be popular and placate the masses that I should take an offensive lineman with the first pick. But I don’t really care about being popular to be honest. I just look at the strength of the draft, some contracts on the team, some ages of players with larger contracts, and go from...

Mock this! Vikings need vs. best player unite (maybe) with Cody Ford

This is your 7-hour, 30-minute warning, draftniks. Only 450 minutes before all of our NFL mock drafts begin breaking. Probably this one in particular. Only 450 more minutes that every man, woman and child in America — with access to the internet, of course — can consider himself or herself a true NFL draft expert. So let's use this precious time to predict/guess why the Vikings will satisfy the camp that's arguing for best player available regardless of position and the camp that's demanding best offensive lineman available, period. This draft, many of us believe, will be remembered for...

Minnesota Vikings Top 5 Draft Needs: Offensive line, #1

Minnesota Vikings Top 5 Draft Needs: Offensive line, #1

Pick a spot, any spot After toying with the idea of putting kicker as the #1 need for the Minnesota Vikings going into the 2019 NFL Draft, I decided that I didn’t want to deal with the impending riot and put offensive line up at the top of the list instead. Normally we could break this down into tackle and guard, but with the state of the Vikings’ offensive line I think that we can lump the whole group together. This team needs to draft someone to bolster the offensive line early on, and they probably need to draft multiple players to that end. Current Vikings offensive linemen: Riley...

Minnesota Vikings Top 5 Draft Needs: Defensive Tackle, #2

Linval needs a friend In all the fun and excitement leading up to draft night tonight, I damn near forgot to complete the list of the Minnesota Vikings’ Top 5 draft needs that I had been working on. So far, we’ve looked at running backs, cornerbacks, and tight ends, but now we come to a spot where there’s a pretty serious hole, all things considered. While the Vikings seem to have an endless supply of talented edge players, the same (at least at this point) can’t be said for the interior. Sure, Linval Joseph is great, but the loss of Sheldon Richardson is one that’s definitely...

The Daily Norseman’s 2019 Mock Draft

Just one, because that’s just how we do it While Ted and I do lots of seven round mock drafts for the Minnesota Vikings during the run up to the draft, I generally only do one first round mock for the NFL Draft as a whole, and that’s what this post is for. I’ve gone through the entire first round and attempted to do my best to project what I think all of the teams with a first round selection are going to do. I decided not to do any trades in this year’s mock, which means you can probably flush it after about the first four or five picks. However, it’s generally just too difficult...

Thorsday and Draft Day Open Thread Good Morning! It’s the start of one of the greatest weekends of the year! The draft starts tonight and goes through the weekend, Avengers Endgame opens tonight and Game of Thrones continues the final season with episode 3 on Sunday.
