We’re nearly through the third day of the 2019 NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis, and every position group has taken the field except for the defensive backs, who will work out on Monday. So, we wanted to take the opportunity to highlight the players that fared the best in the various drills, with an emphasis on the positions that are the most important to the Minnesota Vikings.

We’ll start, as any discussion of the Vikings’ offseason should start, with the offensive line. Here’s a listing of the top ten offensive linemen (or more if there are ties at the bottom of the top ten) in all of the various drills that they were asked to do at Lucas Oil Stadium.
