Field Day: OL, TEs Set For On-Field Workout Saturday

Posted by Mike Wobschall on February 23, 2013 – 8:13 am

Day 4 of the 2013 Scouting Combine is underway here in Indianapolis. Fans read and hear a lot about all the important Combine action that happens behinds the scenes, but on Saturday we can celebrate the beginning of the Combine action that happens on center stage. Offensive linemen and tight ends hit the field for their on-field workout as they conclude their Combine visit and depart Indianapolis at the end of the day.

A lot more than OL and TE workouts will happen on Saturday, though. Here’s a rundown of Saturday’s player schedule…

OL and TE: On-Field Workout (timing, stations, skill drills), Departure from Indianapolis

QB, WR, RB: Meetings, Psychological Testing, Bench Press, Team Interviews

DL and LBs: Measurements, Medical Examinations, Media Interviews, Team Interviews

DBs: Travel to Indianapolis, Registration, Hospital Pre-Exam & X-rays, Orientation, Team Interviews

    What no punters? How about Ms Lauren Silberman.

    She can, and did kick it 40 yards! She beat Kluwe’s 20 yards!

    Ms Silberman is 28 years old, is from NewYork, and played soccer in Wisconsin.

    She is also a trim. good looking gal, that no linebacker would want to hurt…

    Cordarrelle Patterson verses DeAndre Hopkins – 2012 receiving stats.

    Hopkins- 82 receptions for 1405 yards, 17.1 ave, 18 TDs. 62 yards was his longest catch.

    Patterson- 46 receptions for 778 yards, 16.9 ave, 5 TDs. 58 was his longest catch.

    Hopkins is the better fit with Percy Harvin for the Vikings!

    There are SEVERAL factors that go into a receiver’s numbers other than their ability. The numbers alone don’t tell the entire story.

    We don’t know how well EITHER OF THESE GUYS fits with Ponder. But BOTH are talented! If you don’t believe me, go watch highlights. “The tape doesn’t lie!”

    An O-Lineman running a 4.65 40? A Center running a sub-5 40? These are some FAST big men! Some of these O-Linemen are built like Defensive Ends! It’s Crazy!

    The multiuse faciility was a requirement at the start of the negotiations anyway. The stadium will actually belong to the state of MN. So it need to be more than a one sport facility.

    Atlanta to release Michael Turner….I wonder if the vikings will be interested if he’s cheap enough.

    Purpl- I agree, both are very talented. I am very excited that the Vikings might have a shot at Petterson, Allen or Hopkins with pick #23. I have seen highlights on all those guys… and I love what I see.

    My point is Hopkins is also worthy of the Vikings 1st round pick.

    If Hopkins has a strong 40 time and a great vertical jump… He could really raise his draft stock.

  14. By PurplHaze on Feb 23, 2013 | Reply

    Agreed! I didn’t really know much about Hopkins going into the off-season. But the more I see from him, the more I like! ;-)

    Carl, as far as Patterson’s height, I see your sources– somebody goofed somewhere– my source or yours. I read it on ESPN and a few other places that the kid is 6″3.

    Titus & Carl … Even NFL Network combine coverage is stating Patterson is 6’3″. Who knows what’s going on.

    WHY would we pick up Turner??????????? Really??????

  27. By Jeremy on Feb 23, 2013 | Reply

    Patterson was listed at 6’3 in college…. 6’1 or 6’2 official????????? WHO cares can you really tell me that one inch of height makes a difference on the football field…..NOOOO it doesn’t it matters about your skill set and how high you can jump!!!!!

    Also with regards to stats………Carl with a K……. Patterson was a JUCO transfer who went to play with two other great wrs at Tennessee in Hunter and Rogers.. can you name one other player on Clemson’s whole team (without looking it up first)???????????

    btw I think Hopkins is a stud!!!!

  30. By Parkway on Feb 23, 2013 | Reply

    Spielman said he likes to focus on the middle of the offense and defense. That means we are going to take a DT/LB/OG in the first round.

    He has also said that he thinks the draft is deep with OG and WR so you might think that he will wait to take these positions later.

    So DT/LB is most likely. Hopefully Minter/Ogletree will be our answer.

    Im still on the Teo wagon.

    Teo round 1

    Why pick up Turner? Who do we have if AP gets hurt?……oh yeah Gerhardt, I forgot.

  34. By vikes- or - die on Feb 23, 2013 | Reply

    If we take OT or a DT in the first round, I myself would be way cool with that. It always starts up front on both sides of the ball. If our offensive or defensive line struggled that would be a terrible thing. Do your thing Spielman!!!!!!!! Free agency is right around the corner. I feel like a child waiting for Christman Day. Go Vikes Baby!!!!

    Why does everybody get so caught up in the size of a WR. If your are 5-9 with speed, GUICKNESS, great hands and body control. I am more then happy.

  38. By Parkway on Feb 23, 2013 | Reply

    It’s been proven time and time again in crucial situations you need a guy who can go up and get the ball, height is a partial variable along with vertical, hands, and arm length

    I get that, but this is football not science. Great athletes are great athletes and great skills will find a way to catch the football. Insticts are huge and not all pro football players have great Insticts. A QB will find a way to get the ball to a gifted WR, and a gifted WR will find a way to catch it.

    Wow, I must admit that I was very impressed With Teo’s responses to the media. The biggest beef I have with Teo is though, is the way he performed in the national championship. He didn’t look or play like a Heisman Hopefull and not all great college players can make the leap into the NFL.

  47. By Parkway on Feb 23, 2013 | Reply

    Yeah Teo got embarrassed that game and it was against the most NFL type team in all of college football.

  48. By vikes- or - die on Feb 23, 2013 | Reply

    Parkway,
    Exactly, They made him look like a 3rd stringer. It was bad. There is no way in I would draft him in the first or SECOND round. To me personally, I just wouldn’t be able to do it.

  49. By vikes- or - die on Feb 23, 2013 | Reply

    As Viking fans we are very fortunate. Because the way free agency looks and the way the draft looks “if” are able to get a WR in free agency, and possibly another need, the draft swings wide open for us.

    AD – The BEAST OF THE NORTH is working out right now saying, “I don’t care if we get a WR or not. I GOT THIS!!!!

    Man this is sweet, I can when ever I want. I will start with this. I believe Ponder is finding his stride and will make our WR’s, whoever they are, look like the WR’s we will come to know and love.

  52. By vikes- or - die on Feb 23, 2013 | Reply

    Even though I believe Ponder to be our answer at QB, I would like it if we drafted another QB. If we are running A system we expect Ponder to run, I would like to see a QB that could step in and be confident in that system.

  53. By vikes- or - die on Feb 23, 2013 | Reply

    AP is a staple on our offense that causes it to be more explosive. What could be a staple on our defense that would cause it to be more explosive? MLB?
