Studwell totaled a Vikings record 1,981 tackles in 14 seasons, reaching two Pro Bowls. He also helped the Vikings reach two NFC Championship games. A real go-getter as a 9th round draft pick, Studwell is considered one of the greatest Vikings of all-time.

After retiring as a player after the 1990 season, Studwell moved into the Vikings’ player personnel department and served as the team’s Director of College Scouting. He served in different scouting roles until 2019.

In Viking for Life: A Four-Decade Football Love Affair, Studwell shares stories from the Vikings teams of the 1970s and ’80s under head coaches Bud Grant and Jerry Burns. He also provides insight into his three decades in the Vikings’ scouting department and draft room.

Eric Kendricks, Harrison Smith, Dalvin Cook, and Anthony Barr are among current Vikings that Studwell helped draft.
