Laquon Treadwell

Laquon Treadwell is the newest member of the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings raiding party. We take a closer look at the young man from Ole Miss, how he overcame a gruesome injury his sophomore year to become a first round NFL pick, why I love his demeanor and maturity beyond his 20-years on this planet, and what he brings to the Vikings offense. Teddy Bridgewater, Stefon Diggs, and Norv Turner have to be very pleased getting the “Ambassador of Quon” in the building.

All that and other “Cris Carter Was Slow Too…..” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

mock draft

As many Purple FTW! listeners know, I only do one mock draft a year. Mostly due to my lack of expertise and the rest is due to apathy, but it’s Draft week! And as Rick Spielman prepares to be the stone cold boss of the Vikings War Room (probably with one-handed pushups), I offer these humble suggestions for potential prospects straight from my weak and feeble fan brain.

The WTH is Andy Thinking? Picks Are:
1. (23) Josh Doctson, WR TCU – 6-2 202
1. (30)* Karl Joseph, S West Virginia – 5-10 205 (via CAR)
3. (86) Jaylon Smith, OLB Notre Dame – 6-2 233
5. (160) Drew Kaser, P Texas A&M – 6-2 212
7. (240) Moritz Wilhelm Boehringer, WR Germany – 6-4 227 (via BUF)
7. (244) Keith Marshall, RB Georgia – 5-11 219
7. (252)* Justin Zimmer, DT Ferris State – 6-3 292 (via CAR)
*Carolina trades their 1st (30) and 7th (252) for Minnesota’s 2nd (54), 4th (121) and 6th (180)

All that and other “Big Upside” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

NFL DRAFT

The NFL Draft is less than a fortnight away and the annual culling of collegiate talent has gone international. Proven by Luke Inman (@Luke_Spinman) phoning in from Bangkok for his weekly Minnesota Vikings Draft spot!

We chat about the Rams-Titans trade and how it affects the rest of the draft, the fallout from the Jaylon Smith and Myles Jack medical rechecks, if the Vikings are in a position to draft a “redshirt” player, and which Day 1-2 position combos would make us the most happy as Mike Zimmer and the Vikes try to bring home a dozen Lombardis this year.

All that and other “Something Called Will Fuller” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

The 2016 NFL Schedule has been released (like so many white doves). We now know the order of the menu of the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings as we feast towards #LombardiAtNRG. I walk through the schedule and give an HONEST assessment of wins and losses in the first of many way too soon 2016 Vikings season forecasts.

All that and other “16-0, Homeboy” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

Since Luke Inman is in Bangkok (for real, not a euphemism), we called in reliever Austin Belisle (@austincbelisle) of Vikings Territory to give us a few innings of hot Vikings Mock Draft talk. Austin links the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings with a very familiar name at the top, but some fresh blood in the latter rounds including TWO cornerbacks. So tune in as we run through his 7-round Vikings mock and check out his full first rounder on VT.

All that and other “Will Fuller is Not Troy Williamson, Dammit” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.
