Purple FTW! Podcast - Episode 368 - Guardians of the NFL Draft Vol. 2

I do not claim to be an NFL Draft expert. But draft season is a fun time of the year for me because I’m a fan of the process and the feeling of hope springing anew for the 31 teams that didn’t hoist the Lombardi last year. Plus because players are 100% subjective and despite being a neophyte, I will have around the same hit rate as a seasoned tape watcher that breaks down every aspect of a player’s game. It’s the “Sweet Inexact Science”. We take our crack at a First Round Mock Draft [Follow Along Here] and do up our Minnesota Vikings 7 (but really 6) Round Draft Simulation 2.0. [Click For Spoilers!]

All that and more “I’m basically Rocket Raccoon” chatter on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

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

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

Purple FTW! - Mock (Yeah) -ing (Yeah) Listener (Yeah) Mock (Drafts) (ep. 366) - Minnesota Vikings - 1500 ESPN

We’re in the thick of Mock Draft Season. It’s the most exciting/mind numbing part of the NFL schedule as all the draft jabronis are on “Mock Draft 49.1”, but it’s still so much fun. The last time reading of lists of names was this intriguing, Lucius Cornelius Sulla had started his proscriptions in ancient Rome (Google it). We had listeners submit their own Minnesota Vikings mocks (via FanSpeak or With the 1st Pick) and on today’s show I’m going to go through the picks and evaluate. What I like, what I hate, how many Week 1 starters there are, and rate their mocks on a scale of 1-5 Reuben Sandwiches. Even included 1500’s own Matthew Coller‘s mock in the mocking. *Cue Suspenseful Music* Follow along with all of the drafts in the slideshow below.
