The ONE Vikings Offensive Line Problem No One is Talking About πŸ‘€πŸ‘€πŸ‘€

The Minnesota Vikings offensive line is trending in the right direction, but there will be a roster space crunch in the near future and the Vikes will likely have to expose some young talent to waivers.

  2. dddawda ddawda on August 25, 2020 at 1:34 am

    They have some cap they could spend, the just seem to be stubborn about making some of these guys work even when it doesn’t seem beneficial to team success as a whole. Reiff, Elflein, and Dozier/Collins should be thanking their lucky stars that the Vikings have used Covid as an excuse to not replace them when none of them are really starting caliber and while Reiff is average at best his contract is one of the largest on the team.

    The 9 I keep are

    Reiff Cleveland Bradbury Elf O’Neill

    Dozier Hill Udoh Samia

    Try to get Hinton and Brandel on the PS

  5. Call me Sifu on August 25, 2020 at 1:37 am

    Another year of Reiff at LT 😭😭

  6. dave jones on August 25, 2020 at 1:47 am

    So, what makes elflein a lock????????

  7. LJ Sneets on August 25, 2020 at 1:49 am

    It’s funny how so many people were saying Brandel and Hinton were going to be the next guys up….they’ll be lucky to get sent to the practice squad

  8. Mark Christiansen on August 25, 2020 at 1:50 am

    Surprised to see you having Collins as the locks i like him but i was thinking that lean towards a cut if we want to keep some of the new guys but will be so happy if he makes the roster

  9. ajanderson283 on August 25, 2020 at 1:50 am

    Why is Elflein a lock?

  10. Scott Fisher on August 25, 2020 at 1:51 am

    Elf is useful because he can also play a serviceable backup center as needed

  11. Greg Postma on August 25, 2020 at 1:52 am

    Reiff needs to be replaced sooner than later. We suck at both OG spots yet failed to address it in FA or the draft…

  12. Luke Logan on August 25, 2020 at 1:53 am

    I think we have to at least keep udoh on practice squad just because he can stand up to mack when we play the bears

  13. Apathy Prime on August 25, 2020 at 2:00 am

    Still think Collins isn’t going to make the roster let alone be a starter in this league.

  14. rick albuquerque on August 25, 2020 at 2:01 am

    Elflein is worthless!! Just like Xavier Rhodes, they should have both left town on the same bus!!

  15. Ryan Topper on August 25, 2020 at 2:01 am

    sorry hill jones and brandel

  16. LJ Sneets on August 25, 2020 at 2:08 am

    Is it the fact that our GM has only hit on one offensive line draft pick in almost a decade of being in charge of player personnel (excluding Bradbury/Cleveland who are TBD).

  17. Christopher Frost on August 25, 2020 at 2:14 am

    I’m sick of Hill can we cut him yet? ( I’d be isn’t going to start or not have the ability to play that good please cut )

  18. Rage The Victorious on August 25, 2020 at 2:14 am

    How I miss the Williams Wall and Phil Loadholt

  19. johnkrukable on August 25, 2020 at 2:16 am

    Digressing from everything … I am truly shocked that Elflein is on the team LET ALONE STARTING. For me, he torpedoed our LAST TWO SEASONS. WORST GUARD IN THE NFL. It’s hard for me to comprehend, other than he can play backup Center in a pinch should Bradbury go down.

  20. Romaude Mizelle on August 25, 2020 at 2:22 am

    I wager to bet Hill is released and they keep Hinton. #SmokeAndMirrors

  21. 30rmann on August 25, 2020 at 2:24 am

    Great morning let’s chat about Ravens releasing Earl Thomas today what you think about it?

  22. Jeffrey Sams on August 25, 2020 at 2:25 am

    Also, all teams are in the same boat as far as having rookies that are hard for outsiders to evaluate.. I really doubt many teams will snap up 7th round picks from other teams (off the PS) as they have a bunch of young talent in the same boat (ie hard to evaluate and no practice games) I agree Udoh would be snapped up right away as there is legit game tape

  23. Karen 911 on August 25, 2020 at 2:26 am

    If they can’t take Elflein’s job they’re just not that good.At least not at this point.

  24. Greg Postma on August 25, 2020 at 2:26 am

    Everyone is talking about the OL. Especially the interior. Elf is trash and needed to go last year!

  25. The Wolf on August 25, 2020 at 2:29 am

    Good analysis. I would put Collins in the "likely locks" and Brandel and Samia on the bubble, then the group of locks goes to 6 and likely lock to 2 then pick your 2 from there (Jones,Hinton, Brandel, Lacina, Hinton). If the team believes in the upside of the 1-2 year players then it should not be an issue to let some experience go, thus try to seek a trade like last year. If you can’ trade them, then exposing these experienced players to waivers is less risky. Since this is a weird offseason, going with experience this season maybe the strategy and risk loosing young talent, no big deal we have 12 picks next year. I am not sure how the protected 4 players on the practice squad works, but that may be worth considering. Finally, when considering cuts, the Vikings have to consider who they keep must be able to fill in now in case of alien invasion. So who are our 2 tackle ready to go backups? That tells me we try to get Brandel on the (Protected) PR. The guard cut may have to be Collins (if he can’t be traded), he has had his run, if he gets picked up, so be it, move on. This is all about getting guys starter ready in two years.
