Ahhh, yes. Mock draft season. There are about 4 months until the 2015 NFL draft. I realize that doesn’t seem like a lot of time, but come mid March, you’ll be dying for some NFL news.
There certainly isn’t a professional draft that gets as much attention as the NFL draft does. Hell, I’m not sure the NHL as a whole gets as much attention as the NFL draft.
There is so much parity within the NFL. A good draft can absolutely swing your team into contention. A bad draft could set your team back years if you miss on several picks.
I feel like the Vikings are a strong draft and a few key free agent signing away from being legitimate contenders. They’re also in a position where they can potentially go best play available, regardless of position. Because we’ve settled on a quarterback, we can likely have our pick at defensive back, linebacker or offensive lineman. Who do you think they’ll take 11th overall?
