The Minnesota Vikings really surprised people last season, as they made it all the way to the NFC title game. The big surprise was the fact that they were playing with essentially a third-string quarterback for most of the season, as Case Keenum was their only healthy option. Keenum ended up playing his way into a big contract with the Denver Broncos, leading the Vikings to turn to Kirk Cousins for next season.
While Cousins was one of the bigger offseason names, the Vikings have needs on the offensive line heading into next season. One area where they need bodies is at offensive tackle, but they could figure that situation out via the NFL Draft. Oklahoma’s Orlando Brown had a horrible NFL Scouting Combine, but he is a much better player than he showed in shorts in a tee shirt.
At the next level, Brown should be able to stay on the left side. He is a mammoth of a man, and has the skill set that teams look for in a franchise left tackle. He is the son of a former NFL lineman, and has been around the game his whole life. He would be a great selection this late in round one, and the Vikings certainly have a need for his services.
