Purple FTW!

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.

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 decode some of his statements as well as dip our toe into the Mock Draft bidness later in the show.

The inevitable has finally come to pass (but not pass block). The Minnesota Fightin' Vikings have declined to pick up the $18 million option for Adrian Peterson in 2017. General manager Rick Spielman was adamant that the Vikings still would like to re-sign the soon to be 32-year old running back in free agency and Adrian has said the door for a return is not closed, but the die is cast and money talks. I'll elaborate where I think he plays in 2017, deconstruct the Spielman press conference at the NFL Combine from Wednesday, and zoom through some other Purple news and notes.

Free Agency is rapidly approaching and fans of the Minnesota Fightin' Vikings are clamoring for who could be on the Purple's shopping list. I know the Draft is the bee's knees, but this episode is focused solely on free agency (until the end). We walk through the level of priority the Vikings should have on their in-house free agents, I reveal my Top-10 Free Agent Wish List, and wrap up with a clip from my new project BULL with Andy Carlson -- Jordan Reid (@JReidDraftScout) of The Viking Age walks us through a 7-round (but really 6-round) Vikings mock draft.
