"It's been crazy," he said on his visit to NFL Media headquarters in Culver City, Calif., on Monday. "Everything has happened so fast. Everything has changed."
It's been a whirlwind for Boehringer since his pro day. Last week, he was in Kansas City, Minneapolis and Green Bay for team visits. On Monday and Tuesday, he spent time getting to know the Rams in Los Angeles. On Wednesday, he will fly to Seattle to visit with Seahawks officials. And next week, it's off to New Orleans, Atlanta and Carolina.
Somehow he was able to fit in a second open workout last Friday with receivers coaches from nine NFL teams who wanted a second look at his route-running. Also in attendance was Pro Football Hall of Fame coach Bill Parcells. "I wasn't so sure who he was," the 22-year-old receiver admitted.
But all 32 NFL teams sure know who Boehringer is by now. There still isn't a consensus on what type of receiver he is or who he could become. Some teams believe his stock has risen so high that he could be an early third-day draft selection (Rounds 4-5). But at least one NFL evaluator who saw the German work out thinks Boehringer will need at least two years to develop on someone's practice squad, with "no promises beyond that."
Boehringer won't admit that landing with the Vikings would be a dream scenario. His goals are much simpler.
"I just want to get drafted," he said. "I don't care what round or by what team. I just want to hear my name called. It's been a dream of mine to play in the NFL."
