Minnesota Vikings - Roll Safe

Think about it. We roll call through some Minnesota Vikings offseason talking points with friends of the show Luke Inman (Cold Omaha) and Eric Eager (Pro Football Focus). Luke popped in to talk about five draft prospects Vikings should keep an eye on (including three offensive linemen). Plus we added an excerpt from my new project BULL with Andy Carlson, Eric and I had a spirited discussion about potential Vikings free agency targets.

All that and more “Andrew Whitworth: No Matter What” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Minnesota Vikings NFL Mock Draft Luke Inman

‘Nuff Said. The Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings are already looking towards the offseason, and while there are many decisions to be made before the draft (Adrian Peterson, Brandon Fusco, Andrew Whitworth, etc), they are not as fun as mocking where former unpaid interns will go in April’s NFL Draft. Our man Luke Inman (Cold Omaha/eDraft) joins us at Blue Door University to go over his first Vikings Mock Draft of draft season and also critique my own hack attempt at a mock. Plus some SUPER sleepers.

All that and more “Slick Rick” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
