Third Round (Pick No. 89): Logan Stenberg, G – Kentucky

There is some debate as to what needs to be done to solidify the offensive line of the Minnesota Vikings. At the moment, the weakest spots are left guard where Pat Elflein struggled to perform well and center which was held down by rookie Garrett Bradbury. However, many fans are looking to add a left tackle to the mix despite a decent year from Riley Reiff.

Instead of shifting players around again or cutting Reiff, Minnesota could rely on Bradbury developing and replace Elflein in the draft. One of the best prospects who could be around in Round 3 is Logan Stenberg.

The 6’6 and 317-pound lineman started every game at left guard for Kentucky where he was 2019 second-team All-SEC in his senior year. A smart player who can handle numerous assignments, he works hard to succeed at any level.

While he will need to adjust to the NFL level and get stronger to become an NFL starter, there is little doubt the coaching staff could work with him to compete with Elflein for the job. If nothing, some pressure needs to be put on him and depth needs to be added at the spot.
