David Morgan II

David Morgan II — the Pride of the UTSA Road Runners — stopped by the show to chat about his first weeks with the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings.

We talked about what it’s like helping build a brand new college football program from scratch, what he envisions his role with the Purple will be, early impressions of the tight end room and new position coach Pat Shurmur, which current NFL player he models his game after, and why he’s a “II” and not a “Jr”. Also David shares a fishing story that would make B-Rob weep.

All that and other “The Numerology Podcast is Cancelled” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

Minnesota Vikings

The Mortiz Boehringer (aka Mortiz Böhringer) story continues as the NFL will allow Borat to rock the umlaut on his uniform this season. He’s still a long-shot to make the roster and the feel-good story is over (Mike Zimmer said so, not me), but he’ll still be a fan favorite in Mankato for training camp. Plus if he makes a few plays, the fans will be like “Öööööööööööööhhhhhhh!”

Minnesota Vikings

The newest class of Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings rookies are in the building this weekend for rookie mini-camp. Draft picks, undrafted free agents, and tryout players alike will try to climb the mountain of making the Vikings 53-man roster (remember, John Randle was a tryout/UDFA), in what could be the most competitive offseason in team history. There is talent everywhere.

Today we run through a few of the rookies and forecast what their present and future roles could be in Purple. Beyond the headliners in wide receiver Laquon Treadwell and cornerback Mackensie Alexander, there are a number of interesting names who can bring something to the Vikings’ table.

All that and other “Chewbacca was a Rookie” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast.

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.
