Mistral Raymond organizes workouts for Vikings in Tampa

Mistral Raymond is an unsigned draft pick, but that hasn’t stopped him from taking a leadership for the Minnesota Vikings, the team that selected him in the sixth round of this year’s NFL draft.

The former USF defensive back along with former FSU quarterback Christian Ponder, a first round pick by the Vikings, have organized team workouts to be held in Tampa as the NFL lockout continues.

Raymond said he has received permission from his former college to allow himself, Ponder and other Vikings players to work out at USF.

“If Christian gets his stuff together, we’ll have the opportunity to get some of the Vikings skill players down here right on campus at USF,” Raymond told Tom Pelissero of radio.

Raymond, a Palmetto High product, said he has gotten the approval of USF head football coach Skip Holtz to conduct the workouts on campus.
