It's Senior Bowl week, as I think I've mentioned once or twice already, and that means that scouts from every NFL team are descending on Mobile, Alabama to watch some of the bigger stars in the college game practice and engage in all-star competition. It's always interesting to see who teams are talking to, and the good folks at SB Nation's NFL Draft site, Mocking the Draft, have a comprehensive list of who each team has been seen hobnobbing with in Alabama this week.
Here's a complete list of who the Vikings have been speaking with and/or have been rumored to have an interest in.
Christian Ballard, DL, Iowa (6'4", 290)
Kendric Burney, CB, North Carolina (5'9", 180)
Colin Kaepernick, QB, Nevada (6'5", 225)
Lance Kendricks, TE, Wisconsin (6'3", 240)
Joe Lefeged, S, Rutgers (5'11", 210)
Owen Marecic, FB, Stanford (6', 245)
Courtney Smith, WR, S. Alabama (6'4", 220)
Lee Smith, TE, Marshall (6'6", 270)
The team has also been rumored to be speaking with Brandon Fusco, a 6'4", 300-pound center from Slippery Rock University that was the D-II Offensive Lineman of the Year in 2010.
As we get more names to add to this list. . .a couple of which will undoubtedly have "QB" listed as their position. . .we will add them to the list. If anyone has any insights on any of these players, feel free to share them below.
