The praise from the national media just keeps rolling in. Yesterday, we linked to an article from the Sporting News that stated the Vikings have the best safeties in the NFL — and today, we tracked down offensive line rankings from NFL.com that list the Vikes as having the eighth-best blockers in the league.....

Thanks for the read my friend.

Lets make sure everyone notices that they are ranking this OL according to AD and CT's production.
Basically good at run blocking (ZB Scheme everyone hates(hated)) and not how well they do pass blocking.

I like our O-line, and Herrera and Cook will be better, as will the whole line at protecting Tarvaris. We know they can block downhill for the run, it's just time to grow as a unit and pass protect better.

Birk will be better at making adjustments with film study, and with another year in the zone blocking scheme they should be doing less thinking about assignments, and execute better.

IMO overrated at this point. Hopefully they will be solid this year.
