Offensive UDFAs

Brady Aiello – OL (Oregon)

Developmental offensive lineman who has the versatility to play as both a tackle and guard on both sides of the line. Best case scenario for 2020 is likely on the Vikings practice squad.

Jake Bargas – TE (North Carolina)

A bit undersized for a tight end (6-foot-2) and he only caught a total of 21 passes for 189 yards and two touchdowns during his last four seasons at North Carolina.

Dan Chisena – WR (Penn State)

Former track star at Penn State with some enticing traits when it comes to his size (6-foot-3, 202 pounds). However, he only accumulated a total of three catches for 66 yards in 2019.

Quartney Davis – WR (Texas A&M)

Talented 6-foot-1, 201-pound receiver who is at his best when lined up in the slot. In 23 games with Texas A&M since 2018, he caught a total of 99 passes for 1,201 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Nakia Griffin-Stewart – TE (Pittsburgh)

Spent the 2019 season with Pitt after transferring from Rutgers. The 6-foot-5, 260-pound tight end caught 19 passes for 185 yards and one touchdown for the school last year.

Tyler Higby – OL (Michigan State)

Another offensive lineman who has the size (6-foot-5, 300 pounds) and skills to line up as both a guard or a tackle. His multiple injuries at Michigan State are likely what played a large part in him not being drafted this year.

Jake Lacina – OL (Augustana)

This name should be familiar to some Vikings fans since he is the son of the team’s former guard, Corbin Lacina. While at Division II Augustana, the younger Lacina started 45 games at center and he earned a consensus Division II All-America selection in 2019.
