Former Becker football player Dillon Radunz is projected to be selected as early as the first of the NFL Draft, which begins Thursday night. Radunz is an offensive lineman who played left tackle in high school for the Bulldogs and collegiately at North Dakota State.
After selecting cornerback Trae Waynes from Michigan State in the first round last night, the Minnesota Vikings have selected linebacker Eric Kendricks from UCLA with they round-2 pick tonight in Chicago. Not hard to feel Mike Zimmer's influence on this year's draft.
The Minnesota Vikings hold the 11th overall pick in tonight's NFL Draft. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have the first pick, and the Tennessee Titans hold the second spot. I'm glad we scored Teddy Bridgewater last year, taking the Vikes out of the desperate situation of needing to land a quarterback. So let's get down to business.
The Minnesota Vikings have the 8th overall pick in tonight's NFL Draft. I love this day. It's about hope, the future, and the team I love. While many suggest taking a quarterback like Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortels, or Teddy Bridgewater would be a first-round mistake, but I'd like the excitement it would generate (and God knows we need one).
