For the 67 football players with Utah connections currently on NFL rosters, training camp provides an opportunity to make an impression — and plenty of photogenic moments.

There's the time that former BYU teammates Ezekiel Ansah and Kyle Van Noy were snapped chatting on the sideline at Lions camp.

Ex-Utah State linebacker Jake Doughty took part in the annual Packers training camp tradition of riding a young boy's bike from Lambeau Field to practice across the street, and a photographer was there to capture the moment.

Minnesota Vikings running back Matt Asiata, a former Ute, was seen training — and jumping over blocking dummies — alongside veteran rusher Adrian Peterson.

With training camps well underway and the first full week of preseason games just over a week away, here's a look at photos of several of the Utah locals training in NFL practices.
