What have we been able to learn about the 2022 Minnesota Vikings this spring during their first three weeks of OTA practice sessions?

Believe it or not, the Minnesota Vikings are less than two months away from beginning their first training camp with Kevin O’Connell as their head coach.

For the last three weeks, O’Connell and the Vikings have been spending multiple days out on the practice fields at the TCO Performance Center as part of their offseason OTA sessions.

These last few weeks have given us a first look at what Minnesota’s new regime is planning to do with a roster that looks very similar to the one that was out on the field in 2021.

With the Vikings installing new schemes on offense and defense this year, these OTA sessions are extremely important. Knowing this, just about every player on Minnesota’s 2022 roster has taken part in multiple practice sessions during the last three weeks.

With players not allowed to put the pads on during the spring, it’s difficult to get a solid gauge on how good the Vikings could potentially be next season. But we have still been able to learn a few interesting things from Minnesota’s OTA sessions this year.

What have been some of the biggest takeaways from the Vikings’ first-ever OTA practice sessions with O’Connell as their head coach?
