As Vikings minicamp gets underway, the team’s offensive line is expected to have a new look and improved production.
One position that is not expected to see turnover at the starting spot is right tackle, manned by Phil Loadholt who is in a contract year. Leslie Frazier complimented Loadholts pass and run blocking abilities, but said that he needed to be more consistent.
Loadholt didn’t seem to mind Frazier’s public assessment and admitted that Frazier was exactly right.
“He hit it right on the head,” Loadholt said. “It’s something I am going to work on. In this league, anytime you do anything wrong with technique you can look bad. So I will continue to work on my technique and get all those things right.”
If Matt Kalil can improve the left tackle position and Loadholt does indeed progress his play, Christian Ponder and company could indeed be in for a fun season.
If not, well…
… It is June, I don’t want to think about that.
