The 2011 Minnesota Vikings training camp is under way, and I thought it was a perfect time to take an initial look at how the rookies are doing thus far.
Now, what I am going to do is look at the more important rookies that figure to be a part of the 2011 season, or at the very least, situational members if they make the cut with what little news is available.
Ergo, a handful of player will not be discussed for either that reason alone, or lack of player news.
Not covered: Chris Adingupu, David Akinniyi, Conan Amituanai, Larry Dean, Jonathan Gilmore, Marcell Gipson, Ryan Hill, Andre Holmes, Rod Huntley, Byron Isom, Dominique Johnson, Allen Reisner, Alexander Robinson, Marcus Sherels, Devon Torrence, Nate Whitaker and Colby Whitlock.
Conversely, there are still another crop of players who simply did not have enough news to be discussed in this slide, but are still noteworthy to list as "honorable mentions.
These players had very limited news to report, but factor into Minnesota’s depth equation and future only. Barring any unforeseen injuries or team changing situations, there players are not likely to hit the field in 2011
Honorable Mentions: Thomas Welch, Mark Washington, Brandon Fusco, Tristan Davis, Jon Cooper and D’Aundre Reed
