I used a mock draft simulator on another site that uses aggregate player rankings from a variety of sites and has kept team needs updated through FA so far. I got the following result for the Vike's. Although this is probably pretty far off base from whats realistic, it was a fun outcome that I'd be pretty stoked on! I ran several different trials and in the vast majority of those Peppers was gone in the top 20 picks. Would love it if he fell to us.

The answer to that riddle would be interesting...but on the mock, I'm not sure it's all that realistic. I don't think Joe Mixon will be available that late and Peppers neither since he's a top 20 pick.

Life has a funny way of getting busy guys, work, trying to get into grad school, and maintaining a sliver of a social life has cut into my available posting time! I've been around though, mostly lurking the forum and PFT to stay caught up. A couple years ago I got into AML/CTF Investigations and I moved to Chicago for work, successfully completed my assignment, and am now back in Minneapolis. Just in time too, couldn't handle another year of Chicago sports talk...it'll make a guy sick!

In terms of the mock, I agree it's an unlikely outcome. I like Peppers a whole lot though and would be thrilled if somehow we could add him to the Zim D next to Hitman. Realistically I think the Vike's did an adequate job in FA and will be able to stick with the BPA approach to the draft. Won't be surprised at all of there are some fans who end up salty because we don't address the need at X,Y, or Z position right away, but I think that this draft is deep enough for some talent to fall past where it should, and hopefully we are the benefactors!

Looks like Anti-Money Laundering/Combating Financing Terrorism. Helps market countries combat money laundering and financing terrorists so their economies can grow and create jobs. Was curious myself, so looked it up Wink

I don't know if he will be there at 48, but Zimmer had mentioned on P.A's radio show about having more of a "money backer". I wonder if they would pull the trigger if he fell to them.
