Welp....with the Wild parked in the garage for the year and the Twins striking out more than a bachelor at Charlie's at closing time, I turn my attention to the Vikings.
It's draft time. Our beloved Vikings are slotted to pick at #23 this year. The Rams and Eagles have made trades to target their respective quarterbacks of the future, and have given up way too much to do so, in my opinion. I'm glad we have Teddy Throwsevelt as ours and don't have to do what those teams did.
I'd say the team foundation is built and it's time to shop for curtains and lighting fixtures. They addressed the offensive line issue with a couple transactions during the off season, so they don't have to reach for an offensive linemen at pick 23.
They could use another flankerback, a big target to pair with 2nd year guy Stephon Diggs. Laquan Treadwell and Josh Doctson could be that guy. But I think there's better value at 23 than those two.
Zimmer likes his cornerbacks. There may be one there at 23 who I think they will pick; Eli Apple from Ohio State. You can never have enough corners in this passing league. Then they could shuffle some picks and move up to grab his team mate, wide receiver Mike Thomas in the second round.
Super Bowl homeboy.
