Over the course of the last few weeks, Austin Belisle and myself have asked you to make predictions about how the Minnesota Vikings’ 2016 training camp will play out. Meanwhile, Adam Patrick compiled consensus rankings of the “Top 30” most important Vikings players of 2016, with help from 14 knowledgable Vikings writers. Below is the genesis of all that work.

We’ve used your votes, combined with the rankings, to try and assemble one of the most collaborative roster predictions you’ll be able to find anywhere.

Of course, a few questions remain despite the compilation of input, so Austin and I did our best to fill in the blanks. That leads us to our final installment of “10 Camp Questions” in which the tenth question for you, the readers of Vikings Territory, are invited to answer.

Laquon Treadwell is definitely happy to be in Minnesota

It was inevitable that we would eventually be comparing Mike Wallace and Laquon Treadwell given the circumstances one’s departure from, and one’s arrival to, the Minnesota Vikings.

The Vikings cut their losses on the Mike Wallace investment this last offseason and he ruffled some feathers by making comments viewed as a slight to Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Shortly after, Wallace proclaimed his love for Bridgewater and genuinely seemed convinced his words were misconstrued, but the incident burned any remaining bridges he had with Minnesota fans.

The Baltimore Ravens rewarded the speedy Wallace with a two year contract worth $11.5 million. The Vikings used up their first round draft pick to select highly respected receiver Laquon Treadwell. Pats on the back all around, right?

Well, maybe not.

Football is back in Minnesota! Well, sort of.

Players made their way into the Vikings training camp facilities today at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Plenty of buzz was in the air as Minnesota prepares to repeat as NFC North division title holders in 2016.
