Dalton Risner, OL – Kansas State
The top priority for the Minnesota Vikings entering the 2019 NFL Draft should be securing the offensive line. With the team already using a second-round draft pick on Brian O’Neill to shore up the right tackle position, free agent acquisitions Riley Reiff and Mike Remmers holding down spots, and Pat Elflein being the center, there is a guard spot up for grabs.
Bringing in a big bodied lineman who can play inside or out and has been earning honors at his current spot would be a big acquisition. The 6-foot-5 and 300-pound prospect has a massive list of honors that follow him and just one watch of a Kansas State game can show just how good he really is.
Add in his sparkling track record off the field and you have a player who would fit perfectly into what the Vikings do and could contribute during his rookie season. However, it will likely take Minnesota’s first-round pick to get him.
