Luke Inman of eDraft stops in to talk some Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings to fill up the Bye Week with some audible goodness. We touch on how the offensive line can get right in two weeks (it probably can’t), Teddy out-dueling Peyton Manning (no big deal), the new logjam at wide receiver, how that Zimmer Hellfire Defense is saving us, and if Blair Walsh is gonna get Scobee’d or Mason Crosby’d.

We also dive into Luke’s specialties of fantasy football and the rapidly approaching 2016 NFL Draft. Check out all of Luke’s videos on the eDraft YouTube page.

All that and other “12 Days Til Vikings Football” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Thanks to Luke Inman for his collaboration on this piece. 

Larry Butler III didn’t play varsity football all four years of high school. He didn’t attend a Division I school for college ball.

But there’s no doubt about it – he could be a significant target in the 2016 NFL Draft. In May, Butler was referred to as “the best linebacker prospect you haven’t heard of.” We want to make sure that you hear about him.

Luke Inman, of eDraft Sports, said the following of Butler:

“He’s the epitome of a student athlete not giving up on his dream. While his story may never end up on the movie screen like Michael Oher and The Blind Side, it is one in which children following his footsteps should encounter as it speaks to the passion, heart, and determination to not let anything get in his way of reaching his goals. Of course, that’s just off the football field. Between the hashes, Butler is one of the most sought-after and talked-about Division II linebackers in the entire country.”
