as in, which VIKING PLAYERS currently on the roster should now worry their jobs are up for real competition from new rookies.

Longwell comes to mind first of all, who else?

I would say Devin Aromashadu and/or Stephen Burton.

We drafted two WRs, who both are likely to make the final roster. So id say them right now.

Aroma should do. He can smell it in the air.

With what King just did his ability to play RB/FB is valuable. Depends on if they bring in anyone else.

I would assume we sign at least one UDFA, plus we have Todman.

Well Caleb King just ran into some trouble so he is gone.

I think both Jenkins and Aromashodu will be safe if we carry 6 WRs.

WR: Jenkins, Childs, Harvin, Wright, Burton, Aromashodu

Fred Evans should watch out for Guyton .

As for DBs I think we go:

CB: Cook, Robinson, Winfield, Bowman, Allen
S: Smith, Raymond, Blanton, Sanford

Blanton or Raymond can be the 6th corner if needed.

I don't think the Vikings give up on Brandon Burton that quickly. Should be interesting though.

I am of the opinion that Burton would not have been drafted this year by us if he was available. Burton just doesn't match what we expect from our corners. I blame it on the divide we had last year between Spielman and the coaching staff.

Just like how Spielman went out and signed Remi Adoyele. A guy that did not fit into our scheme. He wasn't comfortable playing the NT technique that Fraizer wants to use.

Burton is a good zone defender who can tackle. Pretty sure that's exactly when we're looking for.

When everyone was getting hurt last year and Burton finally got the chance to play a little bit he was the only corner who could get his head around to play the ball in the air.

He sure looked bad in run support last year.

Good tackler =/= good in run support. That's an adjustment a lot of corners have to make. He was a 5th round rookie as well.

I just prefer his size/skilset to Asher Allen who is nothing but a nickel back. Burton could, IMO, play outside or inside.
