Minnesota Vikings Sign Supplemental Draft Entrant RB Caleb King

Even though he failed to be selected in the 2011 NFL Supplemental Draft, that didn’t stop former Georgia star RB Caleb King from finding his spot in the NFL. The Minnesota Vikings took a flyer on the back in hopes of finding a diamond in the rough.

In his career, King ran for 1,271 yards and 10 touchdowns and certainly would have seen his draft stock rise considerably if he’d been able to finish his career at Georgia. He was, however, declared academically ineligible this summer, so finishing was not an option. King was never able to cement himself as the primary rusher on the team, so the teams that worked him out are going to have some level of guess work on their hands.

Former Ohio State quarterback Terrelle Pryor was the only player officially taken during the Supplemental Draft. He went to the Oakland Raiders in the third round.
