KEYC - Vikings' D-Line Deep Heading Into 2015

Vikings' D-Line Deep Heading Into 2015

Posted: Updated:

The Minnesota Vikings come into 2015 with a deep defensive line keeping those in the trenches fresh throughout a game.

Minnesota Vikings Defensive End Everson Griffen says, "Guys like us on the D–Line like playing with high motors, and when you play six, eight, nine plays at full speed, you get three plays off, two plays off here and then you get to do it for nine more plays, six more plays, or whatever, or a three play drive, it just keeps you fresh and unlike the o–Line, there is no substituting for them so we have fresh guy after fresh guy so that can kind of wear the o–line down."

That rotation gave opposing quarterbacks fits last season recording over thirty sacks.

This year the Vikings added more talent to the line by drafting LSU product Danielle Hunter in the third round of the draft.

Griffen says, "He's a big physical specimen, you see the dude, he's 6-6, 256 long arms, long, can run, all he has to do is put his nose to the book and he can do whatever he wants to do in this league."

We'll have more on Hunter throughout camp as he makes the jump from college to the NFL.
