Alright nerds! Here's the big day. The NFL Draft starts in an hour-ish time, and we'll be around to recount all the highs and lows of a bunch of random people getting picked who I have no idea who they are. FOOTBALL!
The Vikings pick towards the later half of the round at 23 and 25. They may take one of those picks and trade up! They may take one and trade back! They may just sit tight and take TWO players tonight! One of those will be Manti Te'o, and I'm going to hate this team again! Awesome. It's been so long since I could do that.
Also, the Vikings will be unveiling their new uniforms tonight (officially), so we'll recap all of that noise at some point too, even though we essentially know what they look like. Whatever.
So jump in, join the fun, grab the Jim Beam, and let's talk pseudo-football for one night in April. Enjoy!

Lastly, just an observation, and I don't intend to be mean (racist?) here........... but the names of some of the these players. Just.... wow.
Well............. I really wanted Ogletree, but overall I guess I can't complain. And thank the good lord we didn't take Manti.
And DT Floyd is a big time STUD for sure. He was rumored to be a top 3 pick in the draft (to Oakland) not that long ago. I love the value with that pick. Analysis and grades for our picks:
Breaking News from Vikings HQ: The linebacker position will be solved by placing Purple Jesus himself at the position. Problem solved.
Alright PJD-landers... I need to make a confession. At least a year ago (maybe two) I shat upon Rick Spielman. I used this forum and others to vomit all over everything he had done.
After careful consideration, I may owe him a blowjob. With a facial. Just throwing that out there.
@CollegeWolf What, Jonathan Cooper? Eric Fischer? Lane Johnson?
@CollegeWolf Really odd that we didn't tackle a LB anywhere. Trading up for Patterson also ties our hands on grabbing a guy in the 2nd or 3rd, for that matter, or at least if we draft a MLB then, he won't be the immediate starter. So who starts there? Erin Henderson? Brian Urlcaher? Ew.
@BlueViking Perfectly acceptable response.
@PJD You are complaining about tons of new traffic? Yeah, they might be idiots, but hey, new traffic! You gone and done it... PJD is big time!!!
@the4norsemen It means nothing, but I'll read those words you just wrote.
@patmycan I don't know how, but that ends up actually being worse than drafting Te'o.
@Hammy1724 HA! Now these are the beautiful comments that I miss when I don't check in with the PJD team on a daily basis. Such a silly somma bitch am I.
@Hammy1724 I'm not too happy about giving up our next 3 round of picks for Patterson, and the jury is still out on some of his late round picks, but I feel like a BJ is a fine consideration, as long as you also drop a finger in his butt, first knuckle deep at least.
@patmycan Fucking Groundhog's Day.
@PJD Matt Elam???
@the4norsemen What better way to set up a guy for success who already has such a bright spotlight on him? Let's mortgage the future on him.
@the4norsemen Nononononon, that's not true, is it?
@Hammy1724 Can't be worse than Ponder....
@PJD Yeah..... ummmm..... totally those ones......
@PJD Agreed. Sigh.
@CollegeWolf Sometimes it's about QUALITY over QUANTITY. Unfortunately, with the typical jerks like myself that come around here, it looks like PJD is lacking in both. *Zing!*
@PJD Picking Te'o would be like marrying the slut you knocked up in high school. You're stuck with him for the long haul. We can have a fling with Urlacher and cut ties when we find something younger and faster.
@PJD Facial is taking things too far then?
@the4norsemen Erin Henderson is your 2013 middle linebacker.
@Hammy1724 Or still escape this draft without Te'o. Then he can get facials. ALL THE FACIALS.
@Hammy1724 I just don't think he DESERVES one yet. He needs to make an Adrian Peterson pick before that happens.
@patmycan @Hammy1724 when did that happen? Last I heard, Squealman said he is a QB and NOT a WR no way, no how
