It’s Draft Night
Who will the Vikings pick?
Eden Prairie, MN -- The National Football League Draft begins tonight in Chicago. The Vikings have the 23rd pick. What are your thoughts?
Most "experts" are saying wide receiver, but General Manager Rick Spielman has not been shy about trading for additional picks in the later rounds. If they do stay with the 23rd pick it'll likely not happen for at least a couple hours in.
The Los Angeles Rams have the first pick at 7 o'clock, the Eagles are second. Both are expected to pick quarterbacks. After that, it's a crap shoot.
The second and third rounds of the Draft are tomorrow evening. Rounds four through seven are on Saturday afternoon.
Gophers Could Go
Minneapolis, MN (Learfield) -- The Golden Gopher football team expects to have at least three players drafted in the N-F-L Draft over the next three days. Defensive backs Eric Murray and Briean Boddy-Calhoun are likely going to get their names called, as will linebacker De'Vondre Campbell. Receiver K-J Maye, defensive back Antonio Johnson, and punter Peter Mortell also have hopes of catching onto an N-F-L roster.
