Potential Draft Targets (player meetings/workouts)

Hey guys! This is a list of supposed player meetings, private workouts and the like from various stages of the off-season, according to I can't actually attest to its accuracy or validity, but if it is true, then it may or may not provide some insight as to potential targets in the upcoming draft.

I think a few of these might have been mentioned before, but I don't think anybody posted such an extensive list. I apologize in advance though if this was a major re-post.

Here is a key:

SR - Senior Bowl meeting.
EW - East-West Shrine meeting.
COM - Combine meeting.
INT - Interested.
VINT - Very Interested.
PRO - Pro Day meeting.
PRI - Private Workout.
% - indicates more than one meeting.
# - indicates meeting set up outside of the 2013 Senior Bowl or the 2013 East-West Shrine Game

Terron Armstead, OL, Arkansas-Pine Bluff (EW)

Sam Barrington, LB, South Florida (EW)

Tommy Bohanon, FB, Wake Forest (SR)

Mike Catapano, DL, Princeton (PRI)

Marcus Davis, WR, Virginia Tech (EW)

Will Davis, DB, Utah State (PRI)

Andre Ellington, RB, Clemson (SR)

D.J. Fluker, OT, Alabama (PRI)

DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson (PRI)

Collin Klein, QB, Kansas State (EW)

Tyrann Mathieu, DB, LSU (PRI)

Christine Michael, RB, Texas A&M (PRI)

Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia (PRI)

Sean Porter, LB, Texas A&M (SR)

Ty Powell, LB, Harding (SR)

Bacarri Rambo, DB, Georgia (SR)

Sheldon Richardson%, DL, Missouri (PRI) (COM)

Robbie Rouse, RB, Fresno State (SR)

Brian Schwenke, OL, California (SR)

Stepfan Taylor, RB, Stanford (SR)

Manti Te'o%, ILB, Notre Dame (PRI) (COM)

Desmond Trufant, DB, Washington (SR)

Sylvester Williams, DL, North Carolina (VINT)

Robert Woods, WR, USC (PRO)

Blidi Wreh-Wilson, DB, Connecticut (SR)

This may just be another "smokescreen" tactic, but there are a couple of players that have been mocked to the vikings ad nauseum. Those would include: Keenan Allen, Deandre Hopkins, Sylvester Williams, Alec Ogletree, Desmond Trufant, Robert Woods (in older mocks), and a few others.

I like to see that they have at least met with some of the players that the population of DN wishes for them to draft. Note the % next to Te'o's name. This indicates that the player has had multiple meetings with the team! Sheldon Richardson also has one! I'm not saying it means anything, but I sure as heck don't think its just a coincidence. Spielman's affinity for ND players is showing. The damn pick might as well be telegraphed.

Anyway, I'll try to keep this updated. If there is a similar thread, let me know.
