OL Ezra Cleveland the rest of the Vikings’ rookie class will report to training camp on Thursday at TCO Performance Center.

We caught up with Cleveland earlier this week to talk about his first pro camp, what emotions he’s feeling, how he’s been staying in shape with OTAs and mini-camps cancelled, and what sort of position flexibility he has.

The Vikings selected Cleveland at pick No. 58 in April’s Draft. He projects as a left tackle, but noted he’s open to taking reps this summer at guard. The offense he was in at Boise St. is comparable to what the Vikings do, he noted.

Cleveland started all 14 games as a freshman at Boise State in 2017, started 13 games and earned first-team all-conference honors as a sophomore, and was first-team All-Mountain West again last fall as a junior before departing for the NFL.
