Training camp is underway for the Minnesota Vikings and 90 players will be fighting for their careers as well as starting jobs in Eagan, Minnesota.

It’s finally here. Minnesota Vikings training camp has arrived and 90 NFL veterans, newbies, and rookies have gathered to put their skills to the test in hopes of having a long and fruitful NFL season.

Sadly, the 90 men who have arrived at training camp won’t all make it through. By the time the regular season kicks off, only 53 will remain on the team’s active roster, meaning many won’t make the cut.

However, there is still time for many of these young players to impress. Here is a list of participants in Vikings training camp according to the team’s official website:

(Note: The team will make transactions early and often during training camp. This list is accurate as of the start of camp.)

Quarterbacks (4)

Expect Kirk Cousins to get to know his receivers well during this time and soak in as much as he can from new offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. Meanwhile, Siemian is also a new face to the mix and will need to be ready in case of an emergency.

Running backs/fullbacks (7)

Seeing Dalvin Cook’s name in this list is awesome, especially after the team had to be without his services following his ACL injury. But the real battle will be between Roc Thomas and Mack Brown for that third running back spot this season.

Wide receivers (12)

Sadly, there are an awful lot of names here who won’t make the cut, but having star players like Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs on this list along with some potential breakout players will make watching this unit quite interesting.

Tight ends (6)

With Josiah Price just returning to the team at the start of camp, there will be plenty of interest to see if any besides the top three of Rudolph, Morgan, and Conklin can emerge with a spot on the 53-man roster.

Offensive line (16)

There are an awful lot of offensive linemen fighting for very few spots this year. However, the Vikings want to bring in as many bodies as possible in hopes that one will click for the team and be able to contribute.

Defensive Linemen (14)

The star power on this unit is strong, with the starting four inked in and some amazing talented rotational and backup players in the mix. Still, with so much young talent, some of these young guys may be able to crack the main roster, or at least the practice squad.

Linebackers (11)

The linebacker grouping has the least depth of any position on the team this year past the starters, so it will be interesting to see who steps up to impress during training camp to stick around.

Defensive backs (16)

The secondary boasts some amazingly talented players like Harrison Smith, Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes and others, but there are also some diamonds in the rough here that could emerge as potential studs, such as rookie Holton Hill.

Special teams (4)

The only real competition here is at kicker, where Forbath will hope to hold off rookie Carlson. Otherwise, the specialists will stay intact from the previous year.

PUP list (does not count against roster)

Soon, he should be healthy enough to return to the team and reclaim his spot as the team’s starting center.
