EAGAN, MN (NewsDakota.com) – The Minnesota Vikings had a less than stellar 2018 season finishing in 2nd place in the NFC North with a record of 8-7-1.
One of the major contributing factors to that finish was the much maligned offensive line. Pro Football Focus ranked the offensive line 29th in the league in the 2018 season.
One of the hottest topics so far at training camp 2019 has been if the offensive line will improve. One of the ways that the Vikings have tried to bolster the line was drafting center Garrett Bradbury with the 18th overall pick. This means that Pat Elflein will move to guard. Elflein is not a stranger to this position, he played it at a high level at Ohio State before moving to the center position and winning the Rimington Trophy in 2017.
Elflein says it’s really all about more reps and getting comfortable with the position…
Elflein says he loves the training camp experience…
Elflein, who underwent shoulder and ankle surgeries after the 2017 season, said he was able to train this offseason instead of getting his body put back together.
The Vikings will travel to New Orleans to take on the Saints on Friday night.
