2. Mike Harris

Going into the season Mike Harris was supposed to be the weak link in the Vikings’ offensive line.

But through seven games Harris has been anything but a weak link. In fact he has been the Vikings’ best and most consistent O-lineman.

Last year Harris looked lost as a fill-in right tackle but it’s been a different story since the move to right guard.

Harris has been good as a run blocker so far this year and solid as a pass protector.

Contrast Harris’ play with that of left guard Brandon Fusco. While Harris has been very strong, Fusco has been pretty much terrible.

Through all the upheaval on the line this year, Harris and fellow journeyman Joe Berger have been nothing but steady.
