Watch: Adam Thielen Pro Bowl Skills Challenge highlights

New, comments

Check out how #19 performed in Orlando

NFL: Pro Bowl-NFC Practice Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

As we passed along yesterday, Minnesota Vikings’ wide receiver Adam Thielen participated in the Pro Bowl Skills Challenge on Thursday in Orlando, Florida.

Thielen got to take part in a few events, starting with the Best Hands competition, which is the one that we expected him to be in. He was part of the second NFC pairing with Seattle Seahawks’ quarterback Russell Wilson. Check out his performance below.

That was followed by Thielen getting the chance to show off his arm, as he was part of the “Precision Passing” drill. Each side had to select one non-quarterback to go along with their two quarterbacks, and he looked. . .okay. He certainly looked better than Von Miller, who was the AFC’s non-QB and managed to get just two points.

Thielen finished with a flourish to give himself 10 points in that competition. He actually got more points than one of the quarterbacks, as Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts only managed to rack up five points.

(Cue the “Thielen for QB2” comments.)

Thielen then struck the final blow for to give the NFC an overall victory in the competition, as he eliminated Houston Texans’ quarterback Deshaun Watson in the final game of Dodgeball of the event.

As the winners, everyone on the NFC side got a $7,500 payday. . .pocket change for them, but it’s still pretty cool.

What did you think of Adam Thielen’s performance tonight? If you watched it, that is.
