This is the second part of the episode of Climbing The Pocket Quick Shots, Jayson Brown sits down with two of the Climbing The Pocket Network’s film watching experts to talk Minnesota Vikings O-Line improvement. Tyler Forness and Matt Fries look in-depth at the skills and possibilities of all the offensive linemen that the Vikings acquired after taking Ezra Cleveland, like Blake Brandel from Oregon State, Kyle Hinton from the football power house of Washburn, and Brady Aiello from Oregon, their all purpose lineman.
There are also the players still on the team that didn’t start last season like Dru Samia, Oli Udoh and Aviante Collins that figure into the new look of the line because we know there is at least one player at right guard, and at left, Pat Elflein will have to show a miraculous improvement to stay in the LG spot. Cleveland could start, Riley Reiff could move over, Garrett Bradbury and Brian O’Neill locked into their spots and a wide open competition at RG. Who will win it? Who will make the squad to back them up?
Those are questions we are all looking forward to seeing answers on. Rick Spielman has been working over the last few years to improve the offensive line. His success rate over Mike Zimmer’s tenure has been questionable at times, but Gary Kubiak and Rick Dennison are on the staff, the 2020 draft in the books, and things are looking up. Agree or disagree? What say you?
