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...

The Vikings Do Pretty Well At Drafting Hall of Fame Players

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...
