    I’m really liking the slot values and how it’s really helping to get these draft picks signed super quick especially being a Vikings fan because before these slot values, it would seem like the Vikings would ALWAYS go to the very last minute to sign their first and second round picks and leave me and I’m sure many other Vikings fans wondering if they were ever going to get a deal done.. it was always frustrating! Can’t wait to see what Barr can do. Skol
