It’s far too early to be predicting what the Minnesota Vikings will do in the 2016 NFL Draft, but that’s part of the fun of the offseason. As fans of the team, we can put on our “general manager” hats and pretend to sit at Rick Spielman’s desk for a few months out of this year. And this time around, we’re fortunate enough to have some help from the team at Draft Season. They’ve already provided a number of different scouting reports on top college prospects and recently released their first seven-round Vikings mock draft. With their help, we’re preparing to have the most productive, informative offseason at VT yet.
For this week’s QOTW, I reached out to fans on Twitter and asked for their dream first-round draft pick this year. Many responded, and many provided a flurry of exciting options for the Vikings:
@austincbelisle Would love to complete the set of UCLA LBs by taking Myles Jack.

@austincbelisle Treadwell. Need a big WR & he's the best of them by a lot. Dont think they'll get him w/o trading up, so I keep dreaming

I also asked the team here at VT for their choices, and the answers varied. Check them out, after the jump!
