The 2012 Minnesota Vikings will be a much better team then they were in 2011.
The Vikings had one of the best drafts in 2012. By selecting Matt Kalil to protect Christian Ponder's blindside, the Vikings ensured that no pass-rusher will easily get to their second-year quarterback every down. Safety Harrison Smith will give the Vikings a talented safety for the first time since 2008. Josh Robinson will help against slot receivers on defense. Jarius Wright and Greg Childs will prove as valued weapons in Ponder's arsenal.
Let's take a look at how the Vikings will do in 2012 with their new players.
