  • Did the Vikings collect the best undrafted free agents?

    It is almost ridiculous, Henderson is a stud, so is Sumrall and Reynaud is a beast at WR and Radovich is a very solid player. Plus they got two fine safeties in Abdullah and Griffin then a solid ILB in Leman. Walker is a fine corner and Young is a strong RB also. Their free agent signings almost make up for their draft, which was not bad but was not great either.

    Vikings S Husain Abdullah (Washington State)
    Vikings DE Martail Burnett (Utah)
    Vikings DT Leger Douzable (Central Florida)
    Vikings S Marcus Griffin (Texas)
    Vikings K Steven Hauschka (NC State)
    Vikings LB Erin Henderson (Maryland)
    Vikings WR Nate Jones (Texas)
    Vikings CB Travis Key (Michigan State)
    Vikings Jeremy "J" Leman (Illinois)
    Vikings C Tim Mattran (Stanford)
    Vikings T Drew Radovich (USC)
    Vikings WR Darius Reynaud (West Virginia)
    Vikings CB Brandon Sumrall (Southern Mississippi)
    Vikings CB Marcus Walker (Oklahoma)
    Vikings QB Kyle Wright (Miami)
    Vikings RB Albert Young (Iowa)


    Here is a list of them that I found, I believe it is correct.

    You are getting a little too excited about UDFA. There is a reason they went undrafted. They have the potential to be good players, but don't get the idea in your head that they will be starting.

      Who said they would be starters? Clearly it is a gamble but there are TONs of VERY good NFL players that went undrafted. And to believe that Henderson, Sumrall, Walker or Radovich do not have potential to be quality players is foolish.

      I am always excited when the undrafted free agent lists come out because there are always players that slip through yet turn out to be better players than the ones drafted.

        They have alot of "known" guys, but it's a little too much to think that all those guys will make the team or start...They did land alot of the top guys though, I can't believe Dallas didn't bring in Griffin I'm upset about that...Henderson probably wanted to go there because of his borther.

          They signed Kyle Wright. Automatically worst.

          Seriously though, definitely a nice group and a good amount of them should make the team or practice squad.

          That is correct comahan

              It looks to be like they just brought in a bunch of name guys. Most likely because they didn't have a ton of draft picks to begin with.

                Getting J Leman and Erin Henderson are nice pick ups. I think both will make it and could eventually be solid contributors. Erin should have some nice mentoring from E.J. during the early stages of his career.

                  Signing the best of the worst is nice, but then you realise they are best of the worst. You'll be lucky if more than 1 make the roster.

                    Yeah, the Vikings usually keep a few though.

                    And Spielman is very aggressive when it comes to UDFAs he wants. Looks like he did another good job here.

                      id say that is the best group of UDFA this year for sure, henderson, griffin, and leeman all should have been drafted, i think leeman and henderson both should have gone 4-5 range, and griffin 6-7th

                        I also think Radovich and Reynaud have a chance to make the team. I wouldn't quite count out Albert Young either as a practice squad guy.

                          It should provide good competition in camp for the last few spots on the roster
