The Vikings wrapped up signing their 2021 draft class on Monday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer-Press reports.

The team signed a trio of third-round picks — linebacker Chazz Surratt, guard Wyatt Davis and defensive end Patrick Jones II — in time for them to be on the field for Wednesday’s first day of training camp at the TCO Performance Center. The Vikings previously had signed the other eight of their 11 picks from the April 29-May 1 draft.

Also Monday, the Vikings waived rookie defensive tackle Jaylen Twyman, their sixth-round pick out of Pittsburgh, due to a non-football injury designation following him being shot four times June 21 in his native Washington D.C. However, the plan is to place Twyman on the reserve non-football injury list after he clears waivers, which is expected.

The move on Twyman cleared a spot on Minnesota’s 90-man roster for free-agent receiver Dede Westbrook, who signed a one-year deal Sunday and had his contract turned in Monday to the NFL. Westbrook, who wore No. 12 the past four years for Jacksonville, was assigned No. 89.
