Purple FTW! - It's Time to Pay Xavier Rhodes (ep. 367) - Minnesota Vikings - 1500 ESPN

Xavier Rhodes is the next Minnesota Viking to be paid. He’s also going to be among the highest paid cornerbacks in the league (if not the highest) and rightfully so. Today on the show, Andy explores what XR and his camp should do to maximize their leverage with the Vikings and if general manager Rick Spielman should capitulate or balk.

Other Talkers Today Include:
• Todd McShay’s Mock Draft
• Vikings Preseason Schedule Is Out
• Adrian Peterson Visited Saints, No Deal
• Prospect Profile: Caleb Brantley

All that and more “WILL THE DRAFT PLEASE JUST GET HERE” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Minnesota Vikings Fanspeak Mock Draft

I took to Twitter on Tuesday night to pose a vital question to my followers.

I thought, “Hey, only nine percent said no, so why not give it a shot?”

Fanspeak’s On The Clock feature allows fans to simulate the 2017 NFL Draft by acting as general manager of any team. It brings together several different variables that NFL front offices consider when selecting — and it allows the user to choose which reputable big board to use for the simulation.

For this simulation, I used the Dan Brugler big board from CBS Sports. And, I stuck with Fanspeak’s free On The Clock feature instead of paying for the Premium feature, which allows users to make trades in the draft.

You can view the full results of my simulation HERE.
