Posted by Mike Wobschall on June 1, 2012 – 2:26 pm

Our brand-new Pick 6 (video mailbag) segment, which appears mid-week on, is off and running. Each week we tackle a variety of questions submitted by fans, but next week we changing course.

Instead of tackling a variety of issues, we’re going to focus on one specific area of the team - the WRs. – and we’re going to have a special guest on hand to help answer those questions (hint: he works with the WRs every day).

So we need you to send in your WR questions. You can submit a question by emailing me ( or leaving the question in the comments section below this entry. Remember to list your name and town with all questions.

If you haven’t yet done so, check out previous installments of Pick 6. This week’s edition took a look at RB Toby Gerhart, CB Antoine Winfield, standout players from OTAs, and more.

The Vikings and 1st-round S Harrison Smith agreed to (and signed) a contract. Smith is the eighth Vikings draft pick to sign his rookie contract. Check out Smith on the May 22nd Wobcast by clicking here.

What Happened At OTAs?

Posted by Mike Wobschall on June 1, 2012 – 6:46 am

The Vikings have completed their first three days of Organized Team Activities (OTAs) as they march through the offseason program in preparation for the 2012 season. It was a busy, productive and positive week overall for the team, as they put in great work on the field and closed the week with their annual playground build at a local school in Minneapolis.

In case you missed our wall-to-wall coverage of OTAs this week, here are a bunch of quick-hitters and links to get you caught up…

Adrian Peterson and Percy Harvin raced up a hill a bunch of times and we have video of it.

QB Christian Ponder is a big self-critic and because of that has progressed well during the offseason.

WR Jerome Simpson told us he loves his new team, his new QB and his new position coach.

Cool video of OTA #1.

– RB Toby Gerhart, the guest on this week’s Wobcast, comes from an athletic family and is good-to-go for the 2012 season.

We talked about CB Antoine Winfield a lot in this week’s Pick 6 (video mailbag feature).

– And in this blog entry about OTA #1.

– The week concluded with a cool annual community event that makes a direct and profound impact.
