The 2011 Minnesota Vikings training camp is rolling along, and although there is a long way to go before the final cuts, the roster is beginning to take shape.
The Vikings have a lot of work in a very short amount of time. Coaches are trying to evaluate players, while players fight for roster spots.
After spending a few days watching the Vikings practice in Mankato and reading countless news articles, I have compiled a list of 12 players that have been impressive through the first week and a half of training camp.
There are certain players that we expect to look good in training camp. For that reason, I will be excluding the following players: Adrian Peterson, Percy Harvin, Visanthe Shiancoe, Jared Allen, Kevin Williams, E.J. Henderson, Chad Greenway, Antoine Winfield and Cedric Griffin (who is coming off back-to-back knee surgeries, but is a true professional).
