5 post-camp cut candidates the Vikings should monitor in 2022
By Dean Jones
Trysten Hill – DT
The Vikings are moving to a 3-4 base defense under Ed Donatell. They have the personnel to make a smooth transition, but if one or two veterans get hurt, there is not much in the way of experience behind them on the depth chart.
While there is hope that the likes of Jaylen Twyman, Janarius Robinson, D.J. Wonnum, and Patrick Jones II can make further improvements, finding another option should be considered if the right opportunity presents itself. That guy could be Trysten Hill, who is right on the Dallas Cowboys roster bubble and might not make the 53 when it’s all said and done.
Hill boasted tremendous potential coming out of Central Florida as the No. 58 overall selection in 2019. However, a series of unfortunate injuries haven’t helped his cause and the Cowboys drafted his potential replacement in the form of Osa Odighizuwa this spring to further complicate matters.
If Hill doesn’t make it, then there should be a queue of suitors. Minnesota makes a lot of sense, with the player seemingly suited to a 3-4 defensive end role in Donatell’s scheme.
Given the unknowns about most on the depth chart behind Minnesota’s projected starters, adding someone like Hill is a nice insurance policy. One that could help in the short and potentially long term.
