Draft Scout Adam Thielen News
06/05/14 - It will be tough for WR Adam Thielen to crack the 53-man roster as the team's fifth receiver, but the second-year longshot certainly is giving coaches something to think about during OTAs.
A 6-foot-2, 195-pounder from Division III Minnesota State Mankato, Thielen spent last season on the practice squad. He has always been deceptively fast, but also is thicker, stronger and a bit quicker this summer.
Thursday, he continued his offseason knack of sneaking behind defenders and making sure-handed catches deep downfield. On one particular play Thursday, he beat a defender into the right corner of the end zone, jumped high while controlling his body, caught the ball at its highest point and got one foot down just inbounds.
09/01/13 - WR Adam Thielen was waived by the Vikings Saturday.
