[NOTE FROM ADAM: This is another installation of my position-by-position breakdown of the Vikings offseason. You can click the links to view previous installments: The Passers, The Runners, The Wide Outs, The Tight Ends, and The Offensive Line.]
After covering each position on the offense, it is time to turn our attention towards the defensive side of the ball.
On offense the Vikings experienced no coaching turnover, but that is not the case on defense. New Defensive Coordinator Alan Williams will have Leslie Frazier and Mike Singletary looking over his shoulder. Fred Pagac has moved back to his old post in charge of the linebackers. Defensive Line Coach Karl Dunbar was sent packing, and the enthusiastic Brendan Daly.
Even with the changes within the coaching staff, the Vikings are largely expected to stay the course from a scheme standpoint. From a personnel standpoint, however, things could be changing.
Defensive tackles are up first.
Let’s take a closer look.
