Entire Vikings coaching staff witnesses Minnesota’s pro day

Representatives from 20 NFL teams — including the entire coaching staff for the Minnesota Vikings — were on hand for Minnesota’s pro day on March 3 to see 25 players work out indoors on FieldTurf.

Ra’Shede Hageman, DT (6-foot-6, 311 pounds) — stood on his numbers from the NFL Scouting Combine and only went through position drills.

Brock Vereen, FS (6-0, 199) — Vereen was at the combine, stood on his numbers from that event and only did position drills at Minnesota’s pro day.

Aaron Hill, LB (6-0 5/8, 231) — Hill ran the 40-yard dash in 4.64 and 4.69 seconds. He had a 32-inch vertical jump and a 9-5 broad jump. He posted times of 4.30 seconds in the short shuttle and 7.06 seconds in the three-cone drill. He also had 21 bench press reps. He was not at the combine and is a priority free-agent pickup possibility following the 2014 NFL Draft.

A player from Concordia of Minnesota also participated in the pro day.

Zach Moore, DE — Moore kept his height and weight (6-5, 269), as well as his other numbers, from the combine. He only participated in position drills. Moore lacks experience, but has some upside as a player due to his height/weight/speed combination (he ran a 4.84 40 at the combine). Moore set a school record for sacks with 33, including 14 sacks in 2012 (the fourth-highest total in Division II football).

North Dakota State also had a prospect participate at Minnesota’s pro day.

Marcus Williams, CB (5-10 7/8, 194) — Williams ran the 40 in 4.63 and 4.57 seconds. He had a 31-inch vertical jump and a 9-9 broad jump. He posted a short shuttle time of 4.27 seconds and a three-cone time of 7.18 seconds. He recorded 15 bench press reps and did positional drills. Williams could be as high as a seventh-round draft pick or a priority free-agent pickup following the draft.
