The Vikings traded up in round two to address the need that arose from the departure of Adrian Peterson, rolling the dice on Dalvin Cook. And while the dice won’t stop careening on the felt for several more months if not longer, there’s early reason to hope for a good outcome.

Zimmer: “He showed acceleration, good feet, good vision, a lot of the same things we saw on tape. He’s a good kid; seems smart in the blitz pickup drill they had down there.”

There was a buzz surrounding Winter Park as players trickled into the field Friday afternoon. Players donned helmets and shorts under sunshine and a light breeze. Despite players having a limited amount of time to learn Minnesota’s schemes and terminology, the practice was fairly clean. The Vikings showcased a crisp pace during team drills with hardly any mulling around between plays.

The Vikings will hold a pair of rookie minicamp practices this weekend, and the entire roster will get together May 23 for the first organized team activity practice.

Weird

If you want a RB who looks like a young AP look at Melvin Gordon.

(unrelated to what you were saying but interesting nontheless.)

Zimmer, on Hodges: “He’s a big, top-shelf guy. He has been able to go over the top of guys and get the ball. He has got great hand-eye coordination. It’s going to be a little different for him, playing more of a traditional H-back role, but he’s a big guy. He’s 6-6, 250, and he’s going to have to get in the weight room and get stronger. But he runs a 4.5 40. He’s got some work to do."

There has been one position change among Minnesota’s 11 drafted players. Seventh-round pick Jack Tocho, a cornerback at North Carolina State, has been moved to safety.

Kind of expected. Wonder if the Vikes keep five safeties, otherwise, there will be some tight competition for the backup safety spots.

It was nice to see Mortiz out there. I wonder if he starts to get some PT this season.
