A look at the roster

I would expect a few changes in the coming days.

Here are some thoughts:

* The Vikings may want to add a sixth receiver, perhaps one with return abilities.

* G Brian Daniels and T Chase Johnson were among the surprises. Daniels was solid throughout camp. But I thought Johnson was not as impressive. But, Johnson is massive, and he is fairly athletic. It would not shock me, though, if they upgrade with a veteran.

* DE Jayme Mitchell and DT Fred Evans got the final two spots. Mitchell beat out Khreem Smith.

* CB Ronyell Whitaker was a surprise over Dovonte Edwards. But I would attribute that to his superiority on special teams.

* It'll be interesting to see what the team does with Nick Sorensen, after his workout in the coming days.

* I think Artose Pinner was undone by the versatility of Naufahu Tahi, who showed that he can catch the ball well out of the backfield and run the ball. In fact, he probably carved himself a role as a short-yardage back.
