Felder, 22, has trained in the slot and is a darkhorse to push for time there in the Vikings' subpackage defenses following the departure of veteran Antoine Winfield. He has dropped to under 200 pounds on his thick, 5-11 frame by eating out less and mixing in more salads.
"I kind of figured out that if you work hard in the weight room and then you go home and you eat a double cheeseburger, that's just going to defeat the purpose," Felder said.
"It really impacts you. You can even tell just when you wake up. You feel a lot better throughout the day. You recover a lot faster. Like someone told me, put on a 10-pound weight vest and go out there and play with that on, and then take it off and see how quick you're going to be."
Felder was the player I was going to draft in the Adopt-A-Viking before I traded up. The coaches have talked about him a good deal and believe he will give Jefferson a run for the dime spot. _________________
