The Minnesota Vikings will offer the same entertainment they do every year when training camp rolls around.
Make no mistake—2013 in Minnesota will feature some of the most intriguing drama to hit a NFL camp battle, with fan favorites competing against relative unknowns for spots at the bottom of the depth chart.
High-profile names like Christian Ponder, Adrian Peterson and Jared Allen won't have to worry about securing their spots, but there are at least nine players who don't know whether they're on the outside looking in or fighting to secure a precarious spot.
Just as there are players who are clear starters and others who are camp bodies, the stories that persist throughout camp are the ones involving the most famous drama of the offseason—namely, who makes the team.
The following players are neither locks to make the Vikings nor merely camp bodies. They're in the thick of the competition to make the roster and could be the most entertaining stories coming out of the preseason.
