That's a sad list right there. Studwell needs to think about hiring a better OL scout or three.

especially when it's contrasted to all the other areas where they have had significant success. I know it's a tough position to draft in this day and age, but they gotta do better

Early look at how the Vikings might fill O-line holes in 2017 NFL draft

Quote:
Here is a deeper look at five offensive linemen projected to be drafted in the second or third round and should be on the Vikings’ radar:

Ryan Ramczyk, OT, Wisconsin, 6-6, 314 pounds
The former NCAA Division III transfer has quickly proved he has a future in the NFL and could slip into the first round if he declares for the draft. The former UW-Stevens Point standout has used his athleticism to outperform many other highly touted offensive tackles in the Big Ten and around the country. He has even found his way onto several mid-season watch lists for postseason honors.

Dan Feeney, OL, Indiana, 6-4, 310 pounds
The guard earned first team All-America honors from several publications and was a first team All-Big Ten honoree, last season. Feeney did not allow a sack in 475 called pass attempts in 2015 and had only allowed one sack in three seasons before his senior year. He has been praised for succeeding with his simple approach combined with his strength and toughness.

Conor McDermott, OT, UCLA, 6-8, 310 pounds
McDermott, a 24-year-old redshirt senior, is athletic and continues to add weight to his tall frame in the second year as a starter at left tackle. His long arms and athleticism (former Mr. Basketball Tennessee) make him an effective blocker and quality pass protector. The Vikings have done well by drafting UCLA standouts (Eric Kendricks and Anthony Barr) recently.

Julie’n Davenport, OT, Bucknell, 6-7, 315 pounds
The FCS star has earned the respect of NFL scouts and national media. He was named a preseason All-American by Athlon Sports and is on the Walter Payton Award watch list. He has an 84-inch wingspan and is described as flexible, quick, intelligent and humble.

Mason Cole, OL, Michigan, 6-5, 305 pounds
Cole, a junior, has made 33 consecutive starts on the offensive line for Michigan and played 25 straight games at left tackle before switching to center in 2016. He was the first true freshman in Michigan history to a start season opener on the O-line.

McDermott and Roderick both have the tools and have played well at times, but they each also have long stretches of incompetence especially in pass protection. Seriously, you watch them for a while and you'll see some serious LOL moments. Either would be a fine mid round pick as a developmental starter, but neither should be viewed as immediate help. TBH, what I've seen of this OT class in general is really lousy.
