The Minnesota Vikings rounded out the majority of their open roster spots Monday by signing 10 undrafted free agents to compete for jobs throughout the spring and summer.

These have been valuable acquisitions for Minnesota over the years with starters Adam Thielen and Anthony Harris coming from the undrafted ranks, as well as contributors Eric Wilson, Rashod Hill, C.J. Ham and Mike Boone.

Here is the entire 2019 class with some quick info about each member.

Micah Abernathy, S, Tennessee

Struggled from an analytical standpoint at Tennessee but posted Pro Day measurables that would have ranked top five or top 10 at the NFL Combine, including an elite 6.6 three-cone drill.

Khari Blasingame, FB, Vanderbilt

Converted linebacker who played running back at Vanderbilt and now looks to switch to fullback. Effective as a pass-catcher as a senior with 25 catches for 320 yards. Had broad jump and three-cone marks that would’ve led the combine.

Jake Browning, QB, Washington

Had an outlier season with 43 touchdowns and nine interceptions as a sophomore when paired with first-round pick John Ross, then regressed as a junior and senior in terms of production. Still posted top 15 marks in adjusted completion percentage against pressure and on deep balls.

Davion Davis, WR, Sam Houston State

Had a monster junior year for the Bearkats with 1,200-plus yards and 17 touchdowns, then had his senior year end early with a leg injury. Stands at 6-0, 185 pounds.

Brandon Dillon, TE, Marian

NAIA product at 6-5 who notched over 600 yards receiving as a senior.

Alexander Hollins, WR, Eastern Illinois

Recorded 1,102 yards as a senior at Eastern Illinois with 16 touchdowns. Former junior college player who only played two seasons of Division I ball. Stands 6-1 and posted Pro Day marks at or close to Top 10 at the combine.

John Keenoy, C, Western Michigan

Ranked top five in PFF’s run-blocking and pass-blocking metrics last year. Only allowed one sack in his last three seasons at Western Michigan.

Nate Meadors, CB, UCLA

Great tackler but struggled against the pass his senior year with the Bruins. Was better, though, as a junior when he didn’t allow a touchdown pass. Can reportedly run the 40-yard dash in around 4.3 seconds. Stands 5-foot-11.

Tito Odenigbo, DT, Miami

Younger brother of former Vikings seventh-round pick Ifeadi Odenigbo. Transferred from Illinois to Miami (FL) before his senior year. At 6-3, 300 pounds, posted a top-10 pass-rushing productivity figure with the Hurricanes.

Anree Saint-Amour, DE, Georgia Tech

Undersized edge rusher at 6-3, 235 pounds. Recorded 12 tackles for loss and three forced fumbles as a senior. Considered a top 15 run-stopper by PFF and had two Pick 6s.
