Evaluating & Projecting The Roster

And two of those picks were Ponder and Kalil. :(

The Kalil pick was only bad in hindsight.  It certainly was the pick to make at the time.  The Ponder one we can certainly all agree was a bad pick even at the time, as they should have either waited or traded back.

The Vikings only have 5* players, at this moment, at 30 years or older. 

 

* yes, I’ve already mentally cut Kai Forbath.

Even more impressive, they only have 2 players older than 30: Robison (35) and Newman (39), who are expected to play only as backups and rotationally. Their oldest starters are Sendejo and Griffen: 30 turning 31 later this year.

PFR uses ages at the end of the calendar year. Current Vikings (minus Forbath) by age on Dec 31, 2018: 

  • 40: Newman
  • 35: Robison
  • 31: Sendejo, Griffen, Sherels
  • 30: Cousins, Joseph, Reiff
  • 29: Smith, Remmers, Rudolph, Compton

Smith's birthday is in early February. If the Vikings make it out of the NFC this year, he'll turn 30 just before the Super Bowl.

As long as Blake Bortles is the Quarterback for the Jaguars, their roster is not better than the Vikings.

One of the Vikings’ undisclosed injuries this spring has continued to keep safety Andrew Sendejo sidelined. Primarily rotating in his place have been Anthony Harris and Jayron Kearse, until Tuesday.

The NFL’s eldest defensive back, Terence Newman, showed off his ability to play any position in the Vikings secondary when he took reps alongside safety Harrison Smith during the start of a three-day mandatory minicamp in Eagan.

We already know that he can play safety in a pinch, but it'll be interesting to watch to see how much he does play there during the preseason.
