The first-round signings have begun to pour in.
"(Waynes has) got length, he's really fast and he's courageous, so that gives you your start. And then you start looking at his technique," said Vikings defensive backs aide Jerry Gray, praising the rookie's ability to play man-to-man coverage. "One thing you can't change is his (4.31) speed. ... Being blessed with speed doesn't hurt."
"He has the speed to match up with them, but he'll be tested,"Hall of Fame receiver James Lofton told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "If he passes enough tests early, people will stay away from him. If he doesn't pass those tests early, he'll be tested the duration of the season."
If he can endure the onslaught, Waynes will have proven his worth in Year 1.
