Head Coach Leslie Frazier has often remarked that the offensive line is not an area of concern. But myself, along with numerous Vikings fans would beg to differ.
There is not a whole lot of confidence in Bryant McKinnie these days, for that matter Steve Hutchinson is starting to raise some doubts.
From center all the way to right tackle is a mess.
So what will the Vikings do once free agency opens and offensive linemen can be signed? One thing Frazier did say was that right guard, currently filled by Anthony Herrea, is a position he could see improvement being a good thing.
Does that simply mean he is going to have an open competition between Herrea and promising prospect Chris Degeare? Perhaps his new draft pick DeMarcus Love is the one he wants to see step in and take the starting job.
Either way one thing should be as obvious to the Vikings brass as it is to their fans. Some adjustments need to take place if Christian Ponder and the skill players are going to make anything happen.
Rookies and undersized linemen won't get that job done, not right away at least.
This years free agent market does offer some talent. So let's take a look at possible vets who could come in and hold down the fort.
