The Vikings may not have added the Chargers wideout that everyone wanted to (Vincent Jackson) but they did add one of his teamates, Bryan Walters. Walters is an undrafted receiver from Cornell who has spent time on the Chargers 53 man roster and also their practice squad. In 4 games in 2011, Walters had 3 catches for 27 yards and returned 8 kicks for 45 yards.
Here is a video of Walters returning a kick in the pre-season last year if your interested: Bryan Walters Kick Return
Walters is a smaller wide receiver(6’0, 190) but has speed and is shifty. Seems like the Vikings will go into training camp with plenty of bodies to compete to make the 53 man roster. Below is the Vikings depth at the receiver position.
1. Percy Harvin
2. Michael Jenkins
3. Devin Aromashodu
4. Stephen Burton
5. Manny Arceneaux
6. Bryan Walters
7. Kerry Taylor
8. Kris Adams
As it stands now Percy Harvin, Michael Jenkins, and possibly Devin Aromashodu are the only locks to make the team next year. Vikings seem high on Stephen Burton and Manny Arceneaux has some upside but both still pretty raw. More than likely a pick or two in this years draft will also be spent on a receiver so should be a good competition heading into camp.
