Welcome to The Real Forno Show, where Tyler Forness and producer Dave Stefano break down all things Minnesota Vikings! In this episode, the Vikings have started phase two of their organized team activities. Players hit the practice field for the first time this offseason and got a chance to do some drills. What can we take from these workouts?

Tyler and Dave quick synopsis of the Vikings’ UDFAs, examining each player’s strengths, weaknesses, and overall potential. They give their expert opinions on which players have the best chance to make the team and contribute on Sundays.

In particular, Tyler and Dave discuss Ivan Pace Jr., the smart and instinctive linebacker out of Cincinnati who has good size and athleticism. They also examine Andre Carter II, the edge rusher out of Army with a proven record of making plays. Who are they and are there any standouts who project well to make the roster?
