f the NFL season Harrison Smith Jersey , which means it’s the time of year where fans on social media ask themselves whether or not one of the best college football teams in the nation could beat the worst teams in the National Football League.Now, such a suggestion in any sport, whether it’s football or basketball or whatever it might be, is patently ridiculous. While there are college teams that have a lot of outstanding players and very talented rosters, every player on every NFL roster was an outstanding player in college, and therefore the college team would have little to no chance of success against NFL competition. Pretty much everything would have to go wrong for the NFL team and everything would have to go right for the college team in order for it to even be close.However, just for fun, the folks from The Action Network have put together hypothetical spreads for the University of Alabama taking on each team in the National Football League. The best chance for the Crimson Tide, according to The Action Network Dru Samia Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , would be against the Buffalo Bills, as they have the Bills being favored by a mere 28.5 points. So, even the team that’s regarded as the worst in the NFL in their estimation. . .and after what they did to the Minnesota Vikings earlier this year, I’m certainly not going to call them that. . .is a four-touchdown favorite.If you’re curious, the Vikings are listed as a 44.5-point favorite over the Crimson Tide by The Action Network. There are only six teams that would be favored by more points than the Vikings would be. (You have to download their app to get to the Vikings’ spread.) There are four teams (the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Rams, New England Patriots, and New Orleans Saints) that are listed as 49.5-point favorites over Nick Saban’s squad.So, if anyone would like to make the argument that the best team in college football would stand even a small chance against any NFL team. . .and we seem to get that argument every season. . .it’s safe to just laugh it off. One last projection for the Vikings from our resident draft scientist"WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections Vikings 2018 SeasonVikings 2019 OffseasonU.S. Bank StadiumMinnesota Vikings PodcastsNFL DraftMinnesota Vikings 2019 NFL DraftMark’s Final Vikings 2019 Mock DraftNew Minnesota Vikings Jerseys 2019 ,114commentsOne last projection for the Vikings from our resident draft scientistCDTShareTweetShareShareMark’s Final Vikings 2019 Mock DraftDouglas DeFelice-USA TODAY SportsWell, after all the mocks it is time for one last one for the record.I do so many that I very rarely come back and say I was right about any picks.How could I when I practically pick every option in the mocks?I realize that if I want to be popular and placate the masses that I should take an offensive lineman with the first pick.But I don’t really care about being popular to be honest. I just look at the strength of the draft, some contracts on the team, some ages of players with larger contracts, and go from there.The one motto I have is ....DON’T CHASE THE DRAFT, LET IT COME TO YOU!...This is how the Vikings got Moss. They certainly did not need him with Carter and Reed already on the team.They missed an opportunity to do this when they took Treadwell instead of Myles Jack who for some reason fell.What has that cost them? Well, perhaps they would not have given Barr that huge extension if they had Jack? Perhaps they would have been able trade Barr (last year) for a high pick?When the Vikings stupidly made the Bradford trade they lost their 2017 first round pick. It was a massive failure IMHO to not trust your backup to play out the games. The Patriots did not panic when Brady went down and they just rolled with Matt Cassel all season. If the Vikings had of rolled with Shaun Hill and whomever else then the probable outcome would have been a couple of more losses no? I think it is reasonable to assume they would have finished around 6-10 which would have put them drafting at the 9th spot in 2017.Who went after that? Mahomes and Watson. Vikings had a visit with Mahomes too.Imagine if they would have just rolled with Hill and took their lumps in 2017. Most reasonable people would have understood since Teddy’s injury was just terribly unfortunate for him and the team.Perhaps the Vikings would have had Mahomes right now and not a 29 mil QB who I like but is expensive.This year they need to take the best player with that first pick. Period.Could be Fant, Metcalf, Sweat Infant Dru Samia Jersey , Gary, Wilkins, Simmons, Ferrell, etc.Metcalf would be an awesome pick! That would open up tons of routes for Diggs and Thielen because he is going to take the top off the defense. That kind of size and speed is hard to find.So this mock is not using any simulator and going off various rankings and mocks out there.There is only two trades in this mock.The first has Houston moving up to and paying a bit of a premium to do so depending on which trade chart you are using. In this one it is almost even.TRADE PARTNER:HOUSTON TEXANSSENT: ROUND: 1 PICK: 18(287 pts)RECEIVED: ROUND: 1 PICK: 23(245 pts) & ROUND: 3 PICK: 22(49 pts)INDIANAPOLIS COLTSSENT: ROUND: 3 PICK:18(54 pts)RECEIVED ROUND: 3 PICK 26 (54 pts) & ROUND: 5 PICK 26 (54 pts)23: R1P23DL JEFFERY SIMMONS MISSISSIPPI STHEIGHT: 6’4” WEIGHT: 301 ARMS: 34.5”HANDS: 10.25”BENCH: 28Douglas DeFelice-USA TODAY Sports50: R2P18OT KALEB MCGARY WASHINGTONHEIGHT: 6’7.1” WEIGHT: 317ARMS: 32.88”HANDS: 10.13”WING: 79.75”40YD: 5.0510YD: 1.753CONE: 7.66BENCH: 23VERTICAL: 33.5”BROAD: 9.25’89: R4P18 G DRU SAMIA OKLAHOMAHEIGHT: 6’4.6”WEIGHT: 306ARMS: 33”HANDS: 10.13”WING: 80.5”40YD: 5.2910YD: 1.833CONE: 7.89BENCH: 28VERTICAL: 27.5”BROAD: 8.42’Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports86: R3P26DE JOE JACKSON MIAMI HEIGHT: 6’4.2”WEIGHT: 275ARMS: 34.13”HANDS: 10”WING: 80”40YD: 4.77BENCH: 22VERTICAL: 27”BROAD: 9.08’Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports120: R4P18TE KAHALE WARRING SAN DIEGO STHEIGHT: 6’5.1”WEIGHT: 252ARMS: 32.75”HANDS: 9.75”WING: 77”40YD: 4.6710YD: 1.613CONE: 7.21BENCH: 19VERTICAL: 36.5”BROAD: 10.17’Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports164: R5P26 S WILL HARRIS BOSTON COLLEGEHEIGHT: 6’1”WEIGHT: 207ARMS: 31.26”HANDS: 9”WING: 72.375”40YD: 4.4810YD: 1.543CONE: 6.81BENCH: 14VERTICAL: 37”BROAD: 10.25’Greg M.
