Now that the NFL Draft is in the distant past and mini-camps have started around the league, it is an exciting time to see all of the rookies put their new NFL jerseys on for the first time.
This season, the Vikings are hoping a rookie of their own, wide receiver Percy Harvin, will be the steal of the draft and add a new dimension to a struggling Vikings offense.
Along with watching their first round pick develop into the receiver they are counting on him to be, the Vikings will also get a first-hand look at some of the talent that came out of the 2009 draft on the opposite sideline.
I will preview the five most dangerous rookies the Vikings will face this season. Of the sixteen games in 2009, the Vikings will face five of the top 10 picks in the draft (the Browns are on the schedule but traded out of the top 10).
This list is based on potential and playmaking ability. Not all players are on offense, the Vikings will face some impressive defensive rookies this season as well.
Our first rookie will come to the Metrodome in week three for the Vikings' home opener, and he is arguably the most talented player from the 2009 NFL Draft.
