During their first season under head coach Kevin O’Connell, the Vikings’ offensive line definitely took some steps in the right direction. However, there is still plenty of room for the unit to improve before the start of the 2023 season.

One way for Minnesota to improve their offensive line would be to add more talent in this year’s NFL Draft.

The weakest part of the unit for the Vikings is easily the interior. Ed Ingram was arguably the worst starting right guard in the NFL last season and left guard Ezra Cleveland struggled to keep defenders in front of him during pass protection.

There are some talented interior offensive linemen available in this year’s NFL Draft pool. Some of them might even be able to immediately replace Cleveland or Ingram in Minnesota’s starting offense for the 2023 season.
