Exciting new boat discovery in Norway! This time, an almost perfectly preserved LOG BOAT. Why is this exciting? And does it relate to the Vikings? Repton? And the Silk Roads? Maybe.... bear with me: #riverkings /1

This boat was found a few days ago on a farm in southern Norway, at the edge of a lake. We don't know the age yet, could be ~2000 to 500 years old, maybe older. BUT the farmer's great-grandad found two log boats there in 1932, both dated to the Viking Age or just before /2
A few other logboats dating to the Viking Age have been found elsewhere in lakes and bogs, and very occasionally, in graves.

Instant Round 2 Grades! Here we go! #NFLDraft2020

Starting with...
33. CIN - Tee Higgins WR9 ... C

My 44th overall player, I think there are better values & better WRs available.

I also would've gone OT here, unless an AJ Green trade is imminent.

Building around Burrow is a good move, though. #Bengals
34. IND - Michael Pittman Jr. WR12 ... D

I'm lower than many on Pittman - 53rd - I just think there are much better prospects at WR. Multiple are still on the board: Laviska 21st, Mims 36th, Edwards 43rd.

Also, not the route I would've gone here with such a valuable pick.

My 1st Round Grades w/ Analysis in the thread:

Referenced my Big Board for value (linked again below w/ my other #NFLDraft content)
All my #NFLDraft content, including my Top 100 Big Board, in one spot👇
A+ (5 total) = Elite pick - great player & fit + excellent value
A (6) = Great - great player & fit
B (5) = Good - would've done it differently
C (5) = Reach / Left value on the board
D (6) = Come again? ... Why.
F (5) = See gif👇

A #Browns thread on the Andrew Berry hiring...
1. From what I understand, the #Browns offered the GM position to Berry late last week and the two sides went to work on the contract. The 5-year deal dialing in the same length as HC Kevin Stefanski was of chief importance to Cleveland - making sure the two were tied together.
2. I've been told by a #Browns team source that even before #Vikings exec George Paton pulled out of the process, it was essentially unanimous inside the building that Berry was the right choice for this job and situation. That said, Paton definitely impressed in his interviews.

Matt Waldman's RSP NFL Lens #LaquonTreadwell Thread

Fit in the #Vikings offense and where there's opportunity for growth in 2018.

#skol #NFL
#LaquonTreadwell isn't a speedster, but he's quick enough and he will work with his quarterback. Here's where his tape is a little more refined that a big guy like #KennyGolladay.
Unlike a receiver like #KennyGolladay, #LaquonTreadwell's game is suited to moving the chains.

He could benefit from clear-outs by his teammates but isn't used that way.

They have him work flats where his length is an asset as a substitute to the ground game.
