Welcome To The Big Show - Kentrell Brothers

The team at Vikings Territory has been busy working to get to know each of our newest Vikings draft selections, and this week we will give you a chance to learn everything we know about these players through our reintroduction of the “Welcome to the Big Show” series.

ATTRIBUTES

HEIGHT: 6′ 0″
WEIGHT: 245 pounds
ARM LENGTH: 30.75 inches
HANDS: 9.75 inches

PRO DAY RESULTS

40-YARD DASH: 4.73 seconds
BENCH PRESS: 19 repetitions (of 225 pounds)
VERTICAL JUMP: 31.5 inches
BROAD JUMP: 9 feet, 2 inches (NFL Combine results)
20-YARD SHORT SHUTTLE: 4.11 seconds (NFL Combine results)
3-CONE: 6.99 seconds (NFL Combine results)

His poor 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine (4.89) hurt his draft stock, but his three-cone drill and 20-yard shuttle was among the top three performers at his position. His short area quickness and change of direction ability is what shows up on game tape.

The 2016 NFL Draft has been over and done with for quite some time now. However, there are still plenty of people making sure they get their opinions on this year’s draft class heard.

Jon Ledyard is the Senior NFL Draft Analyst for USA TODAY’s Draft Wire website. He was kind enough to answer a few questions regarding the Minnesota Vikings incoming group of rookies and give everyone an idea of what the team can expect from this year’s draft class.

David Morgan II

David Morgan II — the Pride of the UTSA Road Runners — stopped by the show to chat about his first weeks with the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings.

We talked about what it’s like helping build a brand new college football program from scratch, what he envisions his role with the Purple will be, early impressions of the tight end room and new position coach Pat Shurmur, which current NFL player he models his game after, and why he’s a “II” and not a “Jr”. Also David shares a fishing story that would make B-Rob weep.

All that and other “The Numerology Podcast is Cancelled” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

With the news cycle at an offseason low, it’s time to start thinking big. The Minnesota Vikings begin organized team activities (OTAs) next week, marking the high-point in what’s been a frustratingly quiet period since the conclusion of the 2016 NFL Draft.

We’re tired of waiting for the action to begin, though; pull out the crystal balls and put on your thinking caps. The Vikings Territory team — and a special guest — are sharing their bold predictions for the 2016 season. Will Rick Spielman make a surprising trade? Does Moritz Böhringer crack the starting lineup? Read after the jump and see what we think!

What’s your way-too-early bold prediction for the 2016 season?

Welcome To The Big Show - Mackensie Alexander

Cornerback certainly did not feel like a huge need heading into this year’s NFL Draft, but the Minnesota Vikings felt otherwise. The newest player to become part of the Vikings talented backfield is Clemson’s Mackensie Alexander.

Regarded by some draft “gurus” as a first round talent, Alexander could end up as one of the steals of the draft considering he was selected in the bottom third of the second round. It is time to take a closer look at what Alexander can bring to a Minnesota defense that seemed to get increasingly deeper after this year’s draft.
