PFF's Steve Palazzolo's final mock: https://www.profootballfocus.com/blog/2 ... -of-draft/
23. Minnesota Vikings – Michael Thomas, WR, Ohio State

There are a number of wide receiver options remaining on the board, but Thomas is the best fit for Minnesota and QB Teddy Bridgewater. Thomas suffered through poor quarterback play at Ohio State, but he can create separation as well as any wide receiver in the class, and that should open up the much-needed intermediate passing game for the Vikings’ offense.

Interesting podcast mock draft of the Vikings pick: http://insidethepylon.com/nfl/2016-nfl- ... e-pick-23/

Having difficulty finding the board prior to the pick but it sounds like a worst-case situation? If you can find the list please post.

Have a listen

Based on this I don't draft Smith before the fifth round and probably not until the sixth or seventh. He may never see the field.

Jack may fall (in fact he may go outside the top-10). Where he lands is one of the night's biggest storylines (for me anyway).

It's almost here!
Which LB does he play? I thought how funny it would be if we had three UCLA LBs.

Mayock's mock (usually one of the more accurate out there):

Doctson would flourish with the Ravens. Flacco's got the arm to make use of his skills.

Treadwell might be the best fit for us anyways. I'd be OK with this.
