Vikings select...Brian O’Neill, OT, Pittsburgh

Recommended Posts

Another thing is that there are some similarities between a TE and a T. Even if it’s sinply having a better understanding of that side of the ball. 

Clemmings going from defense to offense was basically learning the game all over.

Its too bad we couldn't get Jaryd Jones-Smith along with O'Neill.

I don't know if I could handle myself if we did that.

Yeah I thought Jones-Smith would have been drafted.  Just on length alone as a offensive tackle kid is super long and rangy, decent athlete and is a steal UDFA for the Texans.  Was a little raw in college but physically there is a lot to work with no question.

Maybe a formation with Hill at OT with O'Neill outside him and running a route?

We saw it a couple of times last year.

Who catches a touchdown first, Treadwell or O’Neill?

Treadwell throws it to O'Neill. People still complain.?

 

 

 

(Yes, I'm joking)

Only if it's on a hook and ladder play.  :)

I like that they're putting the O'Neill pass-catching out there this early. Teams are going to have to think about it when he's out there now. Even if they don't run it in preseason, the possibility of the wrinkle can help in goal line or 3rd/4th and short situations if the defender has to hesitate just a bit.

"Is this that dumb play where I wander around downfield like I'm lost?"

I don't recall many OL routes, but that certainly wouldn't shock me near the goal line.

One thing I loved from Shurmur was some of the stuff with unbalanced lines. More of that would be nice.

I think it was the Cincinnati game, but I’m not sure, Sirles came in on a goal line situation as an eligible receiver. Rudolph and Morgan went to the left, Sirles ran a route to the right. Pretty sure Rudolph caught the TD, but when you watch the replay, Sirles was more open than anyone else. 

And I think they ran that ply 2-3 on the year.

Run it once, then next time line up the same and a LBer thinks he's going to drop back in coverage before O'Neill just bulldozes him out the back of the end zone
