Keith seems to have the size to possibly slide inside and play OG. Given that he wasnt that good of a tackle, maybe he can be a diamond in the rough at OG.

I remember Cards fans talking about Keith as a decent developmental guy but obviously he probably isnt a starting Tackle in the NFL.

I think certainly that is the case, but to have him as a depth guy and he has tread on the tires is a big plus. You know you can rotate him in and he's been there literally last year. Better than Schwartz who never panned out and moved on.

I think the big knock on Keith was that he sat out the entire year last season with an injury. At least I think I saw that somewhere. Donno that it was his poor play at tackle. I believe that if he's healthy, he is a very good backup, if not a starting option at a guard spot. We shall see.

Quick and fast, the 6-1, 192-pound Thielen stood out in a position group that included 1st-round pick Cordarrelle Patterson as well as a pair of players already on the team’s roster – LaMark Brown (another MSU product) and Chris Summers. Brown and Patterson both had impressive camps as well, but Thielen was more of a surprise given his status as a tryout player from smaller in-state school.

Perhaps it shouldn’t be a surprise that Thielen stood out, though. He played in 46 games at MSU and after his 4-year career leaves the program with his name all over the record books. In 2012 he led the club in receptions with 74, which tied the program’s single-season record. He also led the Mavericks in receiving yards (1,176), receiving TDs (8 ), receiving yards per game ( 84.0) and he was 2nd in yards per catch (15.9). If the Mavericks exploded in the passing game, it was likely due in large part to Thielen – of MSU's 34 passing plays of 25 yards or greater, Thielen caught 21 of them.

Thielen’s impact wasn’t limited to the offense, as he was MSU’s primary punt returner, notching 239 return yards and 1 TD on 24 attempts.

I googled the name "Thielen" and got nothing out of it?

Is that a last name? first name? full name?

Don't think I've seen it in here, but Thielen was originally a walk-on at MSU.

NFL WR Prospect Adam Thielen 6.39 (3-Cone Drill) (Combine best was 6.52)
NFL WR Prospect Adam Thielen- 3.93 Pro Agility (Would have been 3rd best combine time)
24 minutes of coaches film

I watched a little of the highlight video, he looks like a natural hands catcher and has a good feel for the sideline.

SK: Google is your friend. But a direct source link is better.

Thielen sounds like someone to watch as a WR#6, but more importantly as a PR who could displace Sherels, making room for another young CB to be developed.

That would be great. Unless Lacey sucks in preseason they should probably keep him, so we have someone with experience for injury insurance. Cook / Rhodes / JRob / AJJ / Lacey probably only leaves one slot. Better to develop Felder or whoever than keep Sherels just for PR.

If you don't want CP with both return jobs, sure, Thielen would be better to keep than Sherels.

Adrian Peterson has had to slow himself down for the second straight offseason after sport hernia surgery, but he is “just about back to 100 percent,” Leslie Frazier said Wednesday morning.

Frazier: “It’s kind of happened not by his choice. As you know, he had the abdominal strain late in the season and that’s kind of slowed him this offseason as far as being able to kick it into overdrive and being able to do things the way he wants to do it. So that’s kind of slowed him down a little bit, but he’s just about back to 100 percent, doing everything that he needs to be able to do to be in the best shape he can possibly be for this season.”

@mchappell51: With Dallas' Doug Free taking 50% pay cut, #colts Gosder Cherilus is NFL's highest-paid RT. $7 mill per/yr. Free averaged $8 mill.

Certainly puts the Loadholt deal into perspective Laughing

I've met Thielen through a couple of buddies that I met in college, and played football with, who went to DL (Detroit Lakes). Pretty cool dude.
