The blitz of conference tournament and NCAA tournament games in March has allowed college basketball to cement the term “March Madness” into the collective minds of sports fans across America.
So for the 4th consecutive year, vikings.com will piggyback off that and run another “Mock Madness” series in the weeks leading up to the 2011 NFL Draft. Mock Madness is a mechanism by which we can keep up-to-date with the mock drafts of football observers from popular outlets such as NFL.com, ESPN.com and SportsIllustrated.com.
Check back to vikings.com each week for an updated version of Mock Madness to see who everyone is projecting to be the Vikings 1st-round selection.
For those of you who don’t want to click over to the actual page and instead want the cliff notes version of Mock Madness 1.0 so you can continue reading the vikings.com Blog, here are the projections:
