Some capsule profiles of the Vikings’ reported UDFA pick ups.
Pierce Burton/OT/Ole Miss
From Ole Miss bio: Started at right tackle in all 26 games of his Rebel career. Helped produce two of the top three seasons in Ole Miss history in total yardage.
Has 12 years of sailboat racing experience for the Richmond (Calif.) Yacht Club in competitions held on San Francisco Bay.
Originally went to San Jose State.
Recorded 26 reps in the 200 pound bench press at Ole Miss pro day. Said he was disappointed because he did 29 the week before. Said a scout expressed surprise at how athletic he is for someone so large.
