Jake Locker Visits Minnesota Vikings, Tyron Smith Next

The Minnesota Vikings have a long list of needs this off season, but few are more pressing than finding a quarterback and finding guys to protect him.

The Vikings reportedly worked out Washington quarterback Jake Locker on Tuesday and are reportedly scheduled to hold a private workout with Southern Cal offensive tackle Tyron Smith.

Smith missed most of the NFL Scouting Combine because of a lateral meniscus injury. He did bench press at the Combine, lifting 225 pounds 29 times.

Smith is on schedule to work out at the Trojans' Pro Day on March 30 on the USC campus.

Smith could still be on the board when the Vikings pick at #12. Smith has the ability to play guard and tackle. He played right tackle at USC.

As for Locker, he is reportedly scheduled to attend private workouts with the Denver Broncos (#2 overall pick) and Tennessee Titans (#8 overall pick).

Locker is considered a wild card in the upcoming draft. Some draft experts have him going as high as #10 overall, while others have him ranked near the top of round two.

Locker will hold his Pro Day on March 30 on the University of Washington campus.
