Draft picks, undrafted free agents and players invited on a tryout basis arrived at Winter Park Thursday, all hoping to have many more days ahead of them to walk through those doors.

“I saw my locker, so it’s been great so far,” said Kentrell Brothers, whom the Vikings drafted 160th overall. “That’s the moment you realized that this is actually it. This is my home, and this is where I’m going to be for a long time, hopefully.”

Brothers is one of eight Vikings draft picks who arrived at the team’s headquarters along with other first-year hopefuls and a few non-rookie young players. Vikings General Manager Rick Spielman personally greeted the players upon their entrance into the Winter Park Fieldhouse. They then had a tour of the facilities, orientation, met with trainers and equipment managers and had their first headshots in purple taken.

The three-day event will allow coaches to work directly with players and assess their professionalism.

“I’m really excited about playing ball,” said first-round draft pick Laquon Treadwell one week after the Vikings selected him with the 23rd overall pick.

"Brothers is one of eight Vikings draft picks who arrived at the team's headquarters"

I guess that means MoBo didn't have a problem getting his visa? I know it was questionable if he would get it in time.

I got a kick out of Zimmer saying the time to be a celebrity is over (about Mo). Mo seems to want to the same thing so that is good Smile

I imagine the celebrity is not done though, I expect there will be some German news of some sort following this (unless American football is really not a thing at all...my only friends that live there only follow soccer.)

Obviously in slow motion and highlights, but he didn't let the ball into his body.

He double-caught one ball, but other than that he was pretty clean.

Did anyone watch Treadwell's highlights from today? Not too much to see but he did show some really nice suddenness in a dig route vs. Alexander. Can't wait until preseason to see him live against some real competition.
