Xavier Rhodes is the next Minnesota Viking to be paid. He's also going to be among the highest paid cornerbacks in the league (if not the highest) and rightfully so. 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.

Minnesota native Michael Floyd was officially brought back home by the Vikings on Wednesday. We touched on what that means for the team and the wide receiver depth chart (in-depth in our YouTube video below). Plus we have great macro Vikings chats with our friends Darren "Doogie" Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) of KSTP Sports/1500 ESPN and Lindsey Young (@LindseyMNSports) of Vikings.com.

[Note: Both interview were recorded before the Floyd signing was official. But speculation on fit in 2017 still applicable]

Trader Rick Spielman landed a phat return on the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings' 8 inbound picks in the 2017 NFL Draft, trading up twice for running back Dalvin Cook and center Pat Elflein, yet still coming away with 11 selections. To help comb through the picks, we compiled out conversations with @JReidDraftScout (The Viking Age) and BJ Reidell (@RobertReidell) (Vikings Territory & About The Labor Podcast) from earlier in the week on BULL with Andy Carlson. Tune in as better draft minds than I sift through the draft picks, the undrafted free agents, and if Vikings fans should be Bearish or Bullish on the rookie acquisitions.

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!]

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.
