So let’s recap, shall we?
Free agency is a huge question mark, the CBA talks unexpectedly failed and Blaine Gabbert is ranked higher than Jake Locker? Well, nuts to all of that because what's really important is the 2011 NFL Draft—namely, the Minnesota Vikings' seven-round Mock Draft!
There is a ton of discussion over what the Vikings will do in the draft, particularly with their first selection.
But it will be the middle rounds where the Vikings will really want to pick wisely if they are to build through youth and prepare for age.
The other interesting situation is exactly who will be where in each of the rounds that the Vikings will draft in. I say this because there are a couple of players who are extremely intriguing and could be great back-end filler picks who could potentially help this team down the road.
