PA & Pete Bercich were on location in Morris, MN, today celebrating the area as the Purple's 2016 Minnesota Football Program of the year! As part of the festivities, we got to learn quite a bit about several of the Vikings 2017 NFL Draft picks...
First up was LB Ben Gideon, selected 120th overall in the 4th round. He was an impact player for Harbaugh's Michigan Wolverines defense, but since he wasn't named Jabrill Peppers or Taco Charlton, you may not have heard of him. Here he is with PA & Pete -->
Next up is Kansas State LB Elijah Lee! Made plays for the Wildcats before becoming a 7th Round addition to the Purple & Gold. Here's his chat with VOX and Analyst from this morning ---->
Now, the guy we're all fixated on right now, as fans, is Dalvin Cook. Electric on the field at Florida State, we've heard rumblings about some off-field stuff that might be concerning. Gene Deckerhoff is the longtime voice of 'Noles Football/Basketball(busy guy, is also voice of the Tampa Bay Bucs) and he called in to tell us everything we need to know about our 2nd round pick. ---->
And finally, what about the Wide Receivers we drafted? We caught up with one of them this morning, South Florida's Rodney Adams. Our 5th Round selection, he's potentially a vertical threat in the passing game and can be a difference maker as a return guy too. Here's PA & Pete with Rodney ---->
