If the Vikings added this kind of size to the line they should be able to handle power very well. I am not sure if these linemen are the ideal fit for a zone blocking scheme but they could prove to be able to move adequately enough.

The line would look like this eventually ...

Mekhi Becton - 6’7” 355

Solomon Kindley - 6’4” 335

Garrett Brabdbury - 6’3” 305

John Simpson - 6’4” 330

Brian O’Neil - 6’7” 305

Dru Samia - 6’5” 308

Oli Udoh - 6’6” 325

Aviante Collins - 6’4” 305

... that is some serious size. Of course, as in all my mocks, the chances of the players being where I picked them are probably slim.
