Things have been a little slow for the last week or so in these regions, and I apologize for that. Yours truly has taken care of many things, including asking people to pack up just about everything we own and then drive across the country as we enter the next phase of our lives.
However, we’ve been settled for at least a little while, so hopefully I can get more involved as we get closer to the start of free agency and, just as importantly, the 2022 NFL Draft.
To that end, I’m happy to announce that the 2022 iteration of our Minnesota Vikings draft database will be back starting next weekend. Yes, it’s later than I would have generally liked it to start, but it’s coming.
For those of you who are new here, which we do every year. . .well, most years, anyway. . .is to collect a bunch of fictional drafts from the internet and focus on what they project for our favorite football team. We’re updating things weekly so we can see how the different players and position groups are developing as we get closer to the annual draft meeting.
If you look at the final version of the Mock Draft database from last year, you can get an idea of how things will work each week. The final version of the database had USC guard Alijah Vera-Tucker selected by the Vikings at No. 14, and it was half right. . .Vera-Tucker did go to No. 14, but only after the Vikings traded that pick to the Jets. Minnesota then took Christian Darrisaw, who finished second in last year’s database, 23rd overall.
There are a ton of dummy draft databases out there, that’s for sure. However, if you come to this site, you’re probably more interested in what the Vikings are up to, especially now that we’re starting to enter the Kwesi Adofo-Mensah era at the front office and the Vikings have a lot of different directions , they could potentially go to No. 12 overall. So, starting next weekend, we’ll have all of this information in one place right here for you to watch and talk about.
