Minnesota Vikings: 5 possible late-round defensive targets

2 of 6

Trevon Coley – DT – Florida Atlantic

The Minnesota Vikings didn’t just get a gander at Moritz Boehringer at Florida Atlantic pro day, they also took a good look at defensive tackle Trevon Coley.

Scouts were reportedly impressed by Coley’s pro day workout, where he posted 23 bench reps, a 29 1/2-inch vertical and a 4.1 in the 3-cone drill.

Coley is clearly a solid athlete but he’s seen as a late-round pick at defensive tackle because he’s only 6 feet tall. He started his college career as a 235-pound linebacker and had to add lots of beef to get up to 305.

Scouts praise Coley for his quickness and fight as a pass rusher, but are universally unimpressed by his size. He put on a good performance in the Shrine Game, impressing experts with his burst off the line. Some thought he was unfairly snubbed when he didn’t score an invite to the combine.

Though Coley lacks the length Mike Zimmer normally likes in his defensive linemen, this is a player with enough athletic ability to possibly warrant a seventh-round pick.
