Which College Players Are Future Vikings - Bowl Week 2 Primer

Bob Stanton-US PRESSWIRE

College Bowl season is upon us and we have a chance to watch some prospects that may be good fits for the Vikings. Obviously we need to watch WRs closely. Defensive tackle is another position that needs to be monitored as well. The clock is ticking on KWill and the depth behind him is not very good. The secondary is always an area where you cannot rest. Linebacker is a group that is not very impressive besides Greenway. I think that offensive line could be an area where the team looks to improve in the draft. A backup running back/third down change of pace back is another position that could use another body. Lastly, QB should never be overlooked.

I am going to look at the bowl games this week. I am going to list the stats for the players that I like only ...
