8 standout players as Vikings conclude OTAs


Vikings.com's Mike Wobschall attended every practice during Organized Team Activities over the last three weeks.

Wobschall has a list of eight players that stood out going into mandatory minicamp next week.

Here's a look at some of the players Wobschall really liked.

Cordarrelle Patterson - WR
"Everyone expects him to contribute right away as a returner, but Patterson is out to prove he can be a productive receiver for the Vikings offense right away as well."

Jarius Wright - WR
"Figures to be a prominent fixture in the Vikings passing game this season."

John Carlson - TE
"He was consistent throughout the 10 OTAs and had perhaps his best day on Thursday, hauling in the catch of the day with a 1-handed grab in the back of the end zone."

Kyle Rudolph - TE
"Rudolph was hauling in passes left and right during the 10 offseason practices..."

Christian Ponder - QB
"Ponder has command of the offense, has looked sharp most of the time and has responded well to adversity in the other times."
