- Riley Reiff
- Pat Elflein
- Garrett Bradbury
- Dakota Dozier
- Brian O’Neill
As it stands, this is what the starting lineup for the Minnesota Vikings looks like on their offensive line. Considering Elflein and Bradbury struggled mightily last year and the team moved on from Josh Kline, meaning the interior of the line is still a big question mark.
This line could see some major changes for 2020. Most of that will hinge on what the team wants to do with rookie Ezra Cleveland. If he wins the starting job at left tackle, that means Reiff could move inside or to right tackle. Either way, one of these talented tackles could be a guard by Week 1.
Both guard spots need to be an open competition. Elflein hasn’t done enough since returning from injury to be confident in his ability to win battles consistently and Dozier has six years of NFL experience but only 11 career starts under his belt (four of those with Minnesota).
Vikings fans need to be patient with Bradbury. Despite his play last year, there is still hope he can develop into a starting center who can lock down the position for many years in Minnesota.
Still, there is a lot that has to happen before an offensive line trots on the field for Week 1 and plenty of Minnesota Vikings players should be in the running for a spot.
