At 6’5″, 260 lbs, former University of Mary defensive lineman John Oyloe is ready to strut his stuff at the Minnesota Vikings Rookie Training Camp in Eden Prairie this weekend.
If all goes as planned and Oyloe impresses the coaches and staff, the DL will have a chance to earn a free agent contract.
Oyloe is a native of Williston, ND and was a three-time All-Northern Sun performer for the Marauders. Oyloe grabbed 54 tackles in 2013, including 8.5 sacks and 10 tackles for loss. Overall, the senior was third in the league in sacks.
Oyloe wrapped up his college career as U-Mary’s No. 1 tackles for loss leader (41) and No. 2 for career sacks (27.5).
According to the official U-Mary website, Oyloe is the third Marauders player to receive an NFL tryout over the past four years.
