We break from our hardcore Vikings Draft coverage to talk some Minnesota Wild, Sons of Anarchy, Adrian Peterson, and “Why aren’t there 400-lb goalies?” with Jill Hammy (@93XJill) DJ at 93X and formerly of 105 The Ticket‘s The Bench Warmers.
The future crop of Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings players is on the horizon. That’s why we had Jackson McIntire (@jackmack28) of The Viking Age join the show to talk about some potential future Purple People Eaters as well as highlight a few of his draft articles, The Big Board, and his latest Mock Draft.
The NFL Draft is still two weeks away, so that means Mock Draft Season is still in effect! We wrangled up some of the best and brightest of #VikingsTwitter to join the show and drop some knowledge on us. Andrew Renschen (@InfraRen) gathers up a posse of Vikings fans every Friday to do up a 7-round mock draft. We got him, Jason (@MadCityViking), the infamous Judd Zulgad’s Hoodie (@JZHoodie), and our main man Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) to come on the show and share with us what THEY would do if put in Rick’s chair. The opinions are as varied as they are reasonable. That’s what makes this time of year fun!
Eric Galko of @OptimumScouting joins the podcast to talk about the upcoming NFL Draft and what it means for our Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings. Slick Rick Spielman hit on Anthony Barr and Teddy Bridgewater last year and he looks to add to his draft haul of seven 1st round picks in the last three seasons. The Vikings are currently picking at #11 but who knows if they stay there, if Adrian Peterson is moved, or if Rick hops back into the end of the first round as has been his usual move. Eric helps me break it all down from a scouting perspective as we take an in depth look at prospects who could be on the Vikings radar.
