Trader Rick Looks to the Future Trading his 3rd Round Pick

It’s like Rick Spielman had an itch that he just needed to scratch. Rather than make a selection in round three, Trader Rick and company traded the pick with Miami, and the Vikings received a sixth-round pick this year and a third- and a fourth-round (compensatory pick their lowest fourth) in the 2017 NFL Draft. This is what we have come to expect.

Reactions to Day Two of the Draft

After a crazy first day in Chicago, the draft calmed down a bit during it's second day. The Vikings entered the day with two picks (54 and 86) and ended the day with one pick and three additional draft picks (one tomorrow, two next season).

Zimmer "Sizes Up" A Corner in Alexander

After head coach Mike Zimmer stepped aside (slightly) on Day 1 of the NFL Draft to allow general manager Rick Spielman to select an offensive player (wide receiver Laquon Treadwell), he got another defensive player on Day 2. With the 54th pick in the draft, the Vikings selected cornerback Mackensie Alexander from Clemson to add another piece to his secondary.

With The 54th Pick, The Vikes Select Mackensie Alexander

Will he be a steal or a bust? Only time will tell for cornerback Mackensie Alexander.

Official NFL Draft Day 2

Day 1 is in the books, and the Vikings are off to a hot start, snagging one of the top prospects in the Draft, Ole Miss receiver Laquon Treadwell. There's plenty more where that came from, as rounds 2 and 3 take place tonight!

Reactions to the Treadwell Pick

What a night!

Despite what I may think about our pick of Laquon Treadwell (Spoiler Alert: I didn't want him about as much as he apparently didn't want to be in Minnesota, if body language and general demeanor are any indication), Thursday night's draft was jam packed with unprecedented situations (Laremy Tunsil), crazy trades and mock draft busting moves by NFL general managers.

Vikings Get Physical at Receiver in Treadwell

The Minnesota Vikings went big and physical with their first-round pick in selecting Laquon Treadwell, a wide receiver from Ole Miss, at No. 23 overall. Treadwell is 6-2 and 210 pounds and a year ago might have been the top wideout in the draft. But an injury and a bad time in the 40 may have dropped his stock. But don’t tell that to the Vikings.

Vikings Make WR Laquon Treadwell Their First-Round Pick

The Minnesota Vikings used their first-round pick, 23rd overall, to select Laquon Treadwell, a Wide Receiver from Ole Miss.

One pick earlier, Washington selected WR Josh Doctson, a player many thought the Vikings had high interest in. Notre Dame receiver Will Fuller went with the 21st pick.

After Jared Goff and Carson Wentz predictably went 1-2, the first-round has been full of surprises. Ohio State has already had five players selected. Laremy Tunsil dropped to 13 because of a video posted of him just ten minutes before the draft.

Official NFL Draft Day 1

It's a date that NFL fans wait (not necessarily) patiently for as soon as their team's season comes to an end. They watch the NFL Combine. They sift through mock draft after mock draft. They read rumors and hope that the picks their team make can take them to the next level. The NFL Draft is finally here.

Regardless of Guilt, "Deflate-Gate" is Legally Bogus...

I know what you're thinking. "I'm sick of hearing about Deflate-Gate!", I was too. That was until I delved into the differing legal opinions surrounding the case, and saw that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady actually has a case against the league. So, I thought I'd combine esoteric legal opinions with a topic people literally hate!
