The Minnesota Vikings announced 16 undrafted rookie signings on Tuesday, and there was only one surprise.

Glenville State tackle Mark Jackson, not Fresno State running back Robbie Rouse, rounds out the list that previously had trickled out through announcements from schools and agents and media reports.

The complete list of players who have agreed to terms, according to the Vikings, includes:

James Vandenberg, QB, Iowa
Erik Highsmith, WR, North Carolina
Nicholas Edwards, WR, Eastern Washington
Brandan Bishop, S, N.C. State
Bradley Randle, RB, UNLV
Jerodis Williams, RB, Furman
Colin Anderson, TE, Furman
Zach Line, FB, SMU
Darius Eubanks, S, Georgia Southern
Nathan Williams, LB, Ohio State
Camden Wentz, C, N.C. State
Marquis Jackson, DE, Portland State
Mark Jackson, T, Glenville State
Collins Ukwu, DE, Kentucky
Anthony McCloud, DT, Florida State
Rodney Smith, WR Florida State

All players have agreed to terms and must pass physicals before the deals become final. General manager Rick Spielman said another 30 to 35 players are expected to participate in this weekend's rookie minicamp on a tryout basis.
