More Prospects Added To The List

  Chip Scoggins is continuing to uncover the names (without citing any sources) of prospects that are meeting at Winter Park on Tuesday and Wednesday of this week.

For the most part, these are names we’ve already been aware of for days or weeks, but there are a few more to add.

First up is cornerback Brandon Ghee out of Wake Forest.  Ghee is thought to be a first round talent that may fall into the second or third round based solely off of a very deep cornerback class.  He is a good sized corner with a knack for tackling.

Also listed is tight end Richard Dickson from LSU.  At 6 foot 3 inches and 245 pounds, Dickson has proven to be a useful weapon in the passing game.  He had over 30 catches, over 300 yards, and five scores in both 2007 and 2008.  He had a very down 2009 season (21 catches for 157 yards), however, and is expected to be available in the sixth round or later.

Greg Boone out of Virginia Tech is also joining the group at Winter Park.  The tight end (The Access Vikings link has him inaccurately listed as a guard as of this posting)  weighs in at 285 pounds on a 6 foot 3 inch frame.  Known for his blocking skills and not for his receiving skills, Boone gets the “extra tackle” label in a similar way that Jim Kleinsasser does.

Here is the full list of the 20 prospects being reported to visit the Vikings so far:

  • R.J. Archer, QB, William & Mary
  • Greg Boone, TE, Virginia Tech
  • Duke Calhoun, WR, Memphis
  • Bruce Campbell, OT, Maryland
  • Chris Cook, CB, Virginia
  • Richard Dickson, TE, LSU
  • Ryan D’Imperio, ILB/FB, Rutgers
  • Vladimir Ducasse, OT/G, Massachusetts
  • Brandon Ghee, CB, Wake Forest
  • Aaron Hernandez, TE, Florida
  • Mike Iupati, G, Idaho
  • Myron Lewis, S/CB, Vanderbilt
  • Kevin Matthews, C, Texas A&M
  • Chris McCoy, OLB/DE, Middle Tennessee
  • Jerome Murphy, CB, South Florida
  • Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, CB, Indiana of Pennsylvania
  • Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, South Florida
  • Maurkice Pouncey, C/G/RT, Florida
  • Patrick Robinson, CB, Florida State
  • Torrell Troup, NT, Central Florida

The fact that three tight ends are included in this group is very interesting… or at least it should be to Jim Kleinsasser.

    A lot of CB’s being looked at too.
    As I’ve said before, i wouldn’t be at all opposed to us selecting a CB with our 30th pick. Or even moving up to get Wilson (Out of Boise)
    I just can’t convince myself of any other need more important than CB at this point.
    Winfield’s age and foot injury and Cedric’s injury really have me worried.

  2. Purple Charlie says:

    I wouldn’t be surprised to see them actually take 2 CB’s in the draft with it being so deep…

    And with both concerns Fran has brought up…

      Hey Charlie, how it going? I finally got up and running. Who know what Vikes will do on draft day. Childo is a little kooky and nothing would suprise me. Lets just pray CB is high on the priority list.

      • Purple Charlie says:

        Hiya Johnny, Wow 40 people with the same computer problem as you. Well I’m glad you got it fixed and your back on…

        I really think Rick’s input will help allot, I can’t see it not being a priority…

      • Fran the Man says:

        BigJ, A “LITTLE” Kooky??
        Childress has got to be THE kookiest NFL head coach in all of history;
        Cross-dresser, likes to “taste and touch” his
        players. . .yep, THE kookiest!

    • Fran the Man says:

      I wouldn’t either and I hope they do.

    i was just wondering why we didnt try to go and get thigpen i would think that we could get him fairly cheap and i think he is a good option at qb in the future
