More names emerge for Top 30 visit

Posted by: under Quarterbacks, Vikings, Vikings off the field, Vikings draft Updated: April 4, 2011 - 9:59 AM

The Vikings evaluation of draft prospects continues this week when the team hosts its annual Top 30 visit at Winter Park.

The prospects will meet with coaches and other team officials throughout the day before having a dinner together. We've previously mentioned a number of players who are expected to visit the facility before the draft, including quarterbacks Ryan Mallett and Andy Dalton.

Here are three more prospects who are scheduled to visit this week: Troy wide receiver Jerrel Jernigan, Connecticut linebacker Scott Lutrus and Tulsa FB/TE Charles Clay.


SI's Peter King had some interesting items in his Monday Morning Quarterback about the quarterback prospects and how unpredictable this class is. King also writes later in the column that he believes the Vikings make the most sense for veteran quarterback Donovan McNabb, who is not expected to be back in Washington next season.
