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.

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...
