Dalton Risner, offensive line

The Minnesota Vikings offensive line has cleaned up their act quite a bit since the start of the season. Bringing in Dalton Risner as a free agent has allowed the team to trade impending free agent Ezra Cleveland but now means they will need to find someone to start at left guard next year.

Risner has been a great fit for the Vikings. Since arriving in Minnesota, he seems to have embraced the culture and direction of the franchise while helping to solidify the interior of Minnesota's offensive line.

During his four seasons in Denver, Dalton Risner started 62 games. Now, he appears to be Minnesota's starter at left guard for the rest of the season unless something changes with the team's roster.

Keeping a solid offensive line needs to be a priority for the Minnesota Vikings. Fans have seen the results of having even one questionable offensive lineman and that could spell disaster for a young quarterback trying to develop.
