e one of the best passing offenses in the NFL Minnesota Vikings Jerseys Stitched , and if they keep it up they’ll start drawing comparisons to the 1998 offense, at least in terms of throwing the ball. I posted this tweet from Eric in the SMR, but I think it’s worth showing again, just to see how impressive the start to this season has been for Kirk Cousins, Adam Thielen, and Stefon Diggs:On Sunday, Thielen and Cousins set a couple records, and they’re unique ones in NFL history. First up, Thielen:I can’t get over what an incredible statistic that is. Why? Let’s do a little background. Starting in the 1980’s, the NFL really shifted the rules to open up the passing game, and the best wide receivers to ever play the game have mostly come from this modern era where passing is the norm—Jerry Rice, Randy Moss, Cris Carter, Marvin Harrison, Terrell Owens, to just name a few.Coming into the season, Thielen was considered one of the better wide receivers in the league, but it was genreally thought Antonio Brown, Odell Beckham Discount Dru Samia Jersey , Jr., Michael Thomas, and DeAndre Hopkins were better. Heck, you could even make an argument (and you still can) that Thielen wasn’t even the best WR on the Vikings, because Stefon Diggs is every bit as capable as any of the other aforementioned contemporaries.And none of them were able to accomplish what Thielen did on Sunday, with his fifth straight 100+ yard receiving game. Only Adam Thielen has done that, and it’s the first time anyone has done it since 1961...which ironically was the inagural season for the Vikings.Thielen also has more receiving yards after five games than any other player in Vikings history:But Thielen wouldn’t be doing all this without Kirk Cousins. On Sunday against the Eagles, Cousins set an NFL record of his own:That’s a statistic that’s almost as incredible as Thielen’s record, especially since you can’t really hit the quarterback anymore, and passing is now the norm in the NFL. Cousins has also thrown for 400 yards twice this season. The last Vikings QB to do twice in one season was Daunte Culpepper in 2004, and the only other time that has happened in team history was in 1994, when Warren Moon did it. No QB in Vikings history has done it three times in one season, although Tommy Kramer threw for more than 400 yards four times in his career (1980, ‘81, ‘85 ‘86),The last Vikings QB to throw for 400 yards in a game was Brett Favre in 2010, and it’s a feat that’s only been accomplished 13 times in team history. There’s still a lot of things this team can improve on, and it makes sense that if the Vikes offense could run the ball Cousins, DIggs Super Bowl Dru Samia Jersey , and Thielen wouldn’t be off to their torrid starts. But it also stands to reason that in past years, if the Vikings couldn’t run the ball, their offense was dead in the water and the Vikings had little to no chance of winning a game, barring a couple special teams or defensive touchdowns.Although these record setting performances are a byproduct of an inability to run the ball, at least it’s nice to know that with Cousins, Diggs, and Thielen, the Vikings can still move the ball and score, and Minnesota still has a chance to win a lot of football games.And if/when they get their running game issues ironed out, this team is going to be deadly.

The two that don’t come from a couple of guys named Mel Kiper and Todd McShay, and I thought they deserved inclusion. But the other 98 are no older than 17 April, so this is just about as fresh a look as we’re going to get.Before we break down all of the selections, here is the final listing of the 100 mocks that make up the final installment of your Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Database.2019 Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Database, Final VersionSiteNameDateRound 1 (18)Round 2 (50)Round 3 (81)SiteNameDateRound 1 (18)Round 2 (50)Round 3 (81)To finish things off, the offensive linemen just obliterated the rest of the positional groups, more so than in any other installment of our Database thus far. Of the 100 mock drafts we’ve pulled together to make up our Database, a whopping 94 of them have the Vikings taking an offensive lineman with the 18th overall pick. I’m relatively certain that is, by far, the biggest share of the “donut” that one position group has ever amassed in the time we’ve been doing this.The dominance of the offensive linemen in this final Database isn’t that much of a surprise. What is a surprise is the name that’s at the top of the list.Throughout this process, Oklahoma offensive lineman Cody Ford has stood atop the heap of offensive linemen as the top choice for the Vikings, and in most of those weeks he had double (or nearly double) the selections of the next-highest player on the list. In this final Database, however, Ford dropped from the top of the mountain into second place.The most mocked player to the Vikings in our final Database is none other than North Carolina State center Garrett Bradbury, who emerges in this update with 33% of the selections. I’m sure this has quite a bit to do with the recency of these drafts, but there’s no denying that Bradbury to the Vikings is gaining some pretty serious momentum. Ford did manage to hang on to second place, picking up 26% of the vote in our final Database.Washington State tackle Andre Dillard finished in the third spot with 10% of the picks, while Alabama tackle Jonah Williams and Boston College guard Chris Lindstrom were tied just behind him witn 9% of the picks each.Kansas State guard Dalton Risner and Mississippi tackle Greg Little each hung on with 3% of the selections to remain in our final Database update, while Florida tackle Jawaan Taylor slipped in with 1%. The two other offensive linemen that were in our Database last week. . .Kaleb McGary of Washington and Erik McCoy of Texas A&M. . .are both gone this week.So Ben Gedeon Jersey , as you’ve no doubt figured, that doesn’t leave a whole lot of room for non-offensive linemen, as only six selections went to other positions. The only other player to garner multiple selections in this final update was Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins, who appears twice.Four other players each got one selection this week. They were Mississippi State defensive tackle Jeffrey Simmons, Michigan linebacker Devin Bush, Iowa tight end Noah Fant, and Louisiana State cornerback Greedy Williams. Simmons is actually a re-appearance this week after dropping out of the Database last week. Along with McGary and McCoy, Iowa tight end T.J. Hockenson and Washington cornerback stayed from start to finish, some popped in during the process, and some even disappeared and reappeared again. Only 13 of those 22 players made it into the final update.With that, we’re done with the Mock Draft Database for 2019, but we’ll most certainly be back with it next season. . .you know, provided that Rick Spielman doesn’t do something insane like trade next year’s first rounder or something.We hope you’ve enjoyed the 2019 Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Database, and we’ll have to see if the Vikings go the direction that most of the mocks think they’re going to go, or if they’ll do what they did last year and buck the trend. We’re less than 24 hours from finding out!
