Which members of the Minnesota Vikings are heading into a training camp this summer that could have a giant impact on the rest of their NFL careers?

Earlier this week, the Minnesota Vikings finished their first mandatory minicamp with Kevin O’Connell as the team’s new head coach.

Vikings players and coaches will now get some time to rest, but in less than two months, the team will be back on the practice fields at the TCO Performance Center for the start of training camp.

Things are probably going to go much differently with O’Connell now leading the way compared to the last handful of years with Mike Zimmer as Minnesota’s head coach. We’ve already seen how the vibe in the building is much more relaxed under the new regime, and hopefully, it results in success for the Vikings next season.

Heading into training camp each summer, there is always a group of players that will need to perform at an impressive level during the majority of the team’s practices in order to ensure that their future in the NFL isn’t jeopardized. Which notable members of Minnesota’s current roster fit this description?
