Purple FTW! Podcast: Recounting Trade Rick's Capital Gains with JReidDraftScout & BJ Reidell (ep. 371) - Minnesota Vikings - 1500 ESPN

Trader Rick Spielman landed a phat return on the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings’ 8 inbound picks in the 2017 NFL Draft, trading up twice for running back Dalvin Cook and center Pat Elflein, yet still coming away with 11 selections. To help comb through the picks, we compiled out conversations with @JReidDraftScout (The Viking Age) and BJ Reidell (@RobertReidell) (Vikings Territory & About The Labor Podcast) from earlier in the week on BULL with Andy Carlson. Tune in as better draft minds than I sift through the draft picks, the undrafted free agents, and if Vikings fans should be Bearish or Bullish on the rookie acquisitions.

All that and more “Future Franchise Quarterback Jack Nelson” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!
