Minnesota Vikings: Grading the Strength of Every Position Unit Heading into Camp
Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport
The growth of Christian Ponder will determine how far Minnesota can go in 2013.

Let the criticism begin.

The Minnesota Vikings report to training camp Thursday and begin practices on Friday. They enter 2013 with playoff aspirations after a 10-win 2012 that ended in a wild-card weekend loss to the Green Bay Packers.

The Vikings have made some good moves this offseason. But will it be enough to repeat or improve upon 2012?

That's, in part, what we're looking at here. We're going position by position (I lumped offensive and defensive lines, running backs and fullbacks and kicker and punter together) and grading that unit as training camp begins.

The grading scale ranges from as low as "F" to as high as "A." No "A+" here. "C" is considered average.

Depth and starting talent are taken into consideration when making grades.

Can't wait to hear what you all have to say.
