Five Undrafted Free Agents Who Could Make the Vikings' 53-Man Roster

Two specialists and three linebackers stand out as possible surprises for the Vikings' initial roster.

10 of the 90 players on the Vikings' current roster are undrafted rookies. By nature, those players are longshots to make the 53-man roster when training camp wraps up a little over three months from now.

But it's far from impossible. They'll have a shot to impress the Vikings' coaches and front office personnel just like everyone else, a process that has already begun with rookie minicamp and the first few OTA practices. Training camp and preseason games in August will offer more opportunities to earn a job, whether that's on the initial roster or the practice squad. In 2020, UDFA wide receiver Dan Chisena used his speed to make the 53-man roster and carve out a role on special teams.

Here are five UDFAs who could make the Vikings' initial roster this year (or at least stick around on the practice squad).
