The Minnesota Vikings made history in the sixth round of the 2016 NFL Draft by selecting Moritz Boehringer. The 22-year old wide receiver played for the GFL’s Schwabish Hall Unicorns was taken with the 181st overall pick.
That Mortiz Boehringer/Keenan Reynolds back-to-back drafting has just all fired up here @nflnetwork studio. Cool moment right there.

Boehringer has only been playing football for five years and became interested in the sport after watching a youtube video of Adrian Peterson. He has only played one season in the GFL and does not have any collegiate-level experience.
At 6’4″ and 225 pounds, Boehringer is a big target and has the speed to go with it. He ran a 4.45-second 40-yard dash at his pro day and put up a 39 inch vertical. As many as eight NFL teams attended his pro day with the Vikings obviously most excited about his potential.
