The most underappreciated player on this entire Vikings roster is none other than John Sullivan.
Amongst the Minnesota faithful, Sullivan is known as the anchor of this talented offensive line. Outside of that though, many NFL fans don't even know who this guy is.
Well, let me tell you who he is.
Last season, according to Pro Football Focus' formula (subscription required), Sullivan graded out as the best center in the NFL.
An elite run-blocker, Sullivan served as an integral part of Adrian Peterson's amazing 2,000-yard rushing season.
But even after producing at such a high-level throughout the 2012-13 season, Sullivan was snubbed during the Pro Bowl selection process.
Well he may not the considered the strongest or most athletic player on this Vikings roster, Sullivan is certainly one of the brightest.
His ability to understand the game and use his techniques to dominate defenders is the main reason that he has become arguably the best center in the game today.
