That is ALOT tougher than it looks. There are a few cuts that could easily make it (Mistral Raymond, Larry Dean, a couple of receivers, Zach Line, Chase Ford, Sherels, etc.)

Predict the Vikings 2014 Roster
Nobody has Mike Zimmer on their list? If the coach is willing to hire his son, how can he pass up a guy from his same alma mater playing the same position and having the same name.

Is this what it feels like for 49er or Patriot fans (until recently)? Having so much depth that it is hard to figure out which of the players will WIN the spot, instead of getting it by default?
I'm really enjoying this position, to the point of not wanting the season to start in case we are living in a dream-land bubble.Men are moved by two levers only: fear and self interest.

I think that the defense will be ALOT of fun to watch from Day One under him. He is going to be able to mold a lot of it exactly how he wants it now with the draft picks and how free agency played out.

Zimmer comes in with a reputation for spotting talent and getting the most out of them.
Another reason for optimism.
Odds are there will be some struggles with a new coaching staff and rookie QB, but there is also hope.
In a weak division, things can turn around fast.
