If you haven’t been following along, Vikings Territory has had the pleasure of participating in an online, community mock draft called #MockThree. Essentially, it is a real-time draft where real people represent their favorite teams. It was an absolute blast and we are actually already doing it again with #MockFour. (We are the General Managers this time.)
I’ve tried to give everyone here a look into our war room for #MockThree with a few posts discussing the who, what and why of our various selections throughout the draft. If you missed them, go read about the first round, the second and third round, the fourth round and then the final rounds. Come back when you’re done!
For all of you that followed along (Or those who don’t want to and, instead, just want to be a critic!) we would now like you to grade our efforts and tell us what you think of our haul overall. So, here’s what we walked away with:
1.03 – LT Matt Kalil, USC
Trade – 2.03, 4.03 and 6.03 for Bengals 1.21
1.21 – CB Dre Kirkpatrick, Alabama
3.03 – S Markelle Martin, Oklahoma State
4.33 – WR Nick Toon, Wisconsin
4.39 – ILB James-Michael Johnson, Nevada
5.03 – WR Jarius Wright, Arkansas
7.03 – DT Jaye Howard, Florida
7.16 – K Greg Zuerlein, Missouri Western State
Personally, I think we did a great job and went a long way in addressing this team’s needs with valuable players. Of course, I’m biased though. So we would love to hear from you on how we did. Take the polls below and drop us your criticisms/questions (praise?!) in the comments. Also, make sure to visit the #MockOne website and support those guys. They’ve created something really fun that gives fans like us something to entertain ourselves with.
