Minnesota Vikings Draft Profile: Dorial Green-Beckham

Before we start with this, we should make one thing clear: Dorial Green-Beckham is an absolute beast. He stands at 6’5” and weighs 237 pounds and made a mockery of the SEC during his two seasons at Missouri with 17 touchdowns in 25 games. If we were talking talent alone, “DGB” would easily be a top-five selection in the upcoming NFL Draft.However, today’s NFL doesn’t...

Should the Minnesota Vikings consider a d-lineman in free agency?

In a league where the rules are heavily tilted in the favor of the offense, there aren’t a lot of ways for the defense to fight back. All too often, their role in a game is to slow down the bleeding, not stop it. Dominating on that side of the ball has become more and more rare. But that doesn’t mean it can’t happen. In fact, we’ve seen a few examples in recent years where...

Who knew, right? Between this alarming statistic (which we’ll get into below) and the talk last week about how the Vikings are one of the best represented teams in the playoffs historically, you’d almost be fool enough to think that the Vikings are a good team that has a bunch of Hall of Fame players who have so many Super Bowl rings they had to start wearing some of them below...
