It is impossible to miss Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen during training camp.

From unsolicited praise for his rapid improvement from general manger Rick Spielman and coach Mike Zimmer to the splashy plays he routinely makes and the roars from the partisan crowd at Minnesota State Mankato, Thielen always seems to be front and center.


It is way too early to anoint him the No. 5 receiver but pretty safe to assume the final position is Thielen’s to lose.
