NFL teams are permitted to conduct 30 private workout sessions leading up to the draft. Often, teams will waste a few of those sessions as a smokescreen, meeting prospects they have no interest in drafting. However, studying a teams' list of workouts usually offers a glimpse into its drafting game plan.
Minnesota Vikings -- The Vikings have used several of their recent workouts on quarterbacks and linebackers, arguably their two biggest positions of need. The Vikings have scheduled workouts with QBs Vince Young (Texas) and Jay Cutler (Vanderbilt) next week.
Minnesota reportedly would consider moving up a few spots in order to draft Young, should he slip to the 10th overall pick (owned by the Cardinals) or beyond. There is also a sense that the team isn't willing to move up for Cutler, but would select him if he is still available at pick No. 17.
The Vikings and Chiefs will have the opportunity to fill important needs in the first round, writes Todd McShay.
