Teams meet with players throughout the offseason prior to gather more information on players they have an interest in. Vikings’ draft player visits are a good way to find out who they’re interested in going into the draft. Having a visit doesn’t mean a team will draft the player, but it does mean they are interested in them. Here’s the most up-to-date list of players the Vikings have had contact with prior to the 2022 NFL Draft.
Vikings Draft Player Visits
- Mike Harley Jr, Miami.: The Vikings had a long visit with Harley at the senior bowl. (Credit: Justin Melo). Harley is a small speedy, WR projected to be a late-round pick.
- Treylon Burks, Arkansas: The Vikings met with Burks at the combine. He is projected to be a first-round pick.
- Tay Martin, Oklahoma St.: Late round prospect.
- Percy Butler, S, La-Lafayette: Butler was one of the Vikings private official 30 visits. Butler is projected to be a late-round pick.
- Kerby Joseph, S, Illinois: Joseph was another official 30 visit for the Vikings. He’s a ball-hawking safety with good ball skills. Joseph is projected to be a mid to late-round pick.
- Malik Wilis, QB, Liberty: The Vikings met with WIllis at the combine. He’s a flashy athlete that could be a top 10 pick.
- Desmond Ridder, QB, Cincinnati: Another combine visit, Ridder was the leader for the Cincinnati team that had a great run in 2021. Average arm and labeled a game manager, he is expected to be a mid-round pick.
- Travis Jones, Connecticut: The Vikings met with Jones at the combine. Jones is a potential 3-4 NT tackle that’s very important to the scheme. He’s projected to be a second-round pick.
- George Karlaftis, Purdue: The Vikings met Karlaftis at the combine. He’s one of the top EDGE in the draft and is projected to be a middle of the first-round pick.
- Esezi Otomewo, Minnesota: Otomewo was a private 30 visit for the Vikings. The former Gopher is expected to be drafted in the mid to late rounds.
- Alex Wright, UAB: Is a long DE at six-foot-seven. He could develop as a 3-4 DE or OLB, he has the athletic ability to play both. He’s projected to be a day 2 pick.
- David Anenih, Houston: Anenih isn’t getting much attention but he tested among the best at the combine. He fits well as a 3-4 OLB. He is projected to go late in the draft.
- Cameron Goode, California: Late round prospect.
- Marcus Jones, CB, Houston: Jones was an official 30 private visit. He’s a very undersized CB that may be the most ball-hawking CB in the draft. Due to his size, he will be a late-round pick or possibly a UDFA.
- Cole Strange,Chattanooga: Strange is the only player the VIkings met with twice, once at the combine and also a private visit. Strange could be a player the Vikings are looking at for the Center position. He is expected to be drafted in the middle rounds.
- Myjai Sanders,LB, Cincinnati: Sanders is a project that could develop into a pass rushing OLB in a 3-4 defense. He is expected to be drafted in the middle to late-rounds.
- Darien Butler, Arizona State: Undersized LB with pass-rush ability. Projected as a late-round pick.
