The last two days that notebook has been talking about guy who are maybe a 50/50 shot to ever play a single NFL down. The starters/vets showed up in camp yesterday. Are those same guys flashing on day 1 and day 2 going to flash vs. an NFL veteran? Some will, but most will not.

Just enjoy the spectacle, but don't get too excited until you see a guy do it on September.
Lol, if I may,
THANK YOU CAPTAIN OBVIOUS! Jk
I think people are ready for some football. I know I am.

Sorry that I feel off after the first day of Rookie Training Camp. But it looks like others have picked up my slack.

Not seeing Riley Reiff this morning, so Rashod Hill back with 1s. McKinnon is here but hasn't done much. Thielen looks OK.

Just a twinge seems to always lead to something more/bigger......not a good thing

Remmers has been less than impressive today. Sacks given up to Hunter, Robison and Griffen.

Bradford looking comfortable in the pocket
Quarterback Sam Bradford looked sharp in his second training camp practice. He was moving well in the pocket to push the ball down the field with accuracy. He fit several throws into tight windows,

Bradford hasn't been afraid to sling the ball into traffic during team drills.
Treadwell winning against the “big dogs”
Wide receiver Laquon Treadwell had a great practice Friday, winning against every number one cornerback on the Vikings’ roster.

Treadwell is moving well in and out of his breaks and appears to be more comfortable getting open with a variety of routes.
Floyd has put together two strong practices and it’s clear he’ll be a vertical threat after he returns from his four-game suspension. His physicality and wide catch radius are two impressive attributes of his skill-set.
Tight end Bucky Hodges had several positive reps as a run blocker, washing the defensive player out of the play. An emphasis has been placed on run blocking and Hodges has been showing strides in this area of his game.
Remmers has been opening holes with Joe Berger on the right side. The big issue has been consistency in pass protection.
Brothers got tangled up with fullback C.J. Ham and left the field on a cart.
Center Pat Elflein rotated into the starting center spot during the second half of practice.
Mike Zimmer isn’t concerned about left tackle Riley Reiff’s injury. Reiff was held out of Friday’s practice, but Zimmer said he was around the facility.

Minnesota Vikings Training Camp: Friday Afternoon Recap
The o-line kind of struggled, Sam Bradford didn’t, and Dalvin Cook looks special

Exactly what I would expect this early into camp.

Riley Reiff, the team’s prized free-agent acquisition, remains sidelined with what the team describes as an injury that won’t take long to heal. Reiff was at this morning’s walkthrough, but did not participate.
Zimmer says O-line at less than full strength is 'concerning'
