Garrett Bradbury, Center
The Minnesota Vikings current version of Gjallarhorn-blowing strongman Thor Bjornsson is none other than Garrett Bradbury. Bjornsson is from Iceland, Bradbury is from North Carolina.
The Vikings selected Bradbury with the 18th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. At age 24, he was the oldest player ever that the Vikings have used with its first-round selection.
Bradbury was not otherworldly in his rookie slate of games, but he did display incremental improvement as the season progressed. His development in 2020 and beyond will be a pivotal indicator as to the future of the offensive line. The stakes are mainly so high for Bradbury because of the immense draft capital spent on the pick.
The man has the muscle for the job, or so it seems. He put forth 34 bench press reps at the 2019 NFL combine. By that metric, he was the fourth-strongest man in the 2019 NFL Draft.
