Right tackle Olisaemeka Udoh, the Vikings 6th round draft pick has shined in the first two preseason games. He’s played about forty-eight snaps between both games and allowed zero QB pressures, and zero sacks. While it is against third team players, it’s still impressive. Let’s highlight his play and breakdown what contributing to his early success.

His frame allows him to neutralize defenders and stop them in their tracks.

Love the tenacity and the big man finish here. Punishing the defenders and finishing the play.

Drives the defender out of the play, and is able to adjust to his adjustment.

If Udoh continues to play like this the team will have no choice, but to showcase him with the second team offense. Either way He has a bright future ahead of him.

      I hope he can drive this way once he gets into a regular season game ~ I have high hopes going forward for this young man ~ Maybe he can one day replace O’Neill at RT letting O’Neill replace Reiff at LT ~

        I actually like him more as the left tackle if he can develop, because of the natural size and power. He could stop guys like Mack in their tracks. Speed may be an issue down the line tho

      Love depth on the offensive line. Recent seasons have shown how important it is.

          I said it on ATL, it has been a long time since I haven’t been absolutely terrified of the offensive line depth. I’m not saying I would be fully comfortable seeing Oli or Samia take the field with the starters anytime soon, but I am excited to watch how they do against true NFL competition, and they most likely will get that opportunity sooner or later.

            Yes I agree previous years when we had oline man go down we were screwed. This year the competition is tight and bad play might get you benched for the next man
