Full Vikings Scouting Guide for the 2013 Senior Bowl

The 2013 Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama will be sure to draw interest from teams around the league, including the Minnesota Vikings.

While most fans know in general what to watch for, it behooves the knowledgeable fan to dig deeper and learn about some of the top performers competing in the game.

While the game on January 26 will certainly factor into scouts' evaluations, more important will be the film from their college seasons and their performance in practice. The NFL Network's Mike Mayock correctly predicted Matt Jones' bust potential in 2005 when he saw the former quarterback-turned-receiver dog practices.

That's not to say the game doesn't matter. The improved mechanics and sharp route-running that evaluators see in practice might disappear in game situations. While most teams won't have a scout at the game, they will certainly be watching.

While the Minnesota Vikings have been interviewing players at nearly every position, from tackles and running backs to receivers and fullbacks, fans can be assured that the Vikings will want to prioritize their needs.

For the most part, they will want to pay attention to wide receivers, defensive tackles and linebackers, although some other positions like guard and tight end will be sure to spark interest.

We'll take a look at players at priority positions in Saturday's game, which air on NFL Network at 4:00 PM EST.
