Several more Vikings rookie camp try out invitees have been revealed. This morning I posted on a trio of small college players who had scored try outs, including Minnesota State-Mankato DE Chris Schaudt (a guy who has a legit shot to stick).
There’s another Minnesota State player set to try out at the Vikings’ rookie camp, which kicks off this Thursday. QB Jon Wolf has been invited to give it a shot alongside his teammate Schaudt. But he won’t be trying out as a QB.
The 6-4, 200 pound Wolf was the Northern Sun conference offensive POY this past season and was a finalist for the Harlon Hill Award, which goes to the top player in Division II. Besides throwing for 17 TDs against one pick, Wolf also led Minnesota State in rushing yards.
And he already has experience throwing to one member of the current Vikings roster. He was teammates with 2013 camp sensation Adam Thielen.
As it turns out Wolf won’t be doing any throwing for the Vikings. They are interested in him as a receiver, per the Mankato Free Press.
Wolf says he also has interest from the Dolphins who want to give him a look as a quarterback.
If these players want a little inspiration, they need look no further than the aforementioned Adam Thielen, who came in last year with no expectations, wowed everyone and scored himself a futures contract. And now Thielen has a chance to make the Vikings as a fifth receiver.
