    Projecting the Vikings' 53-Man Roster: RB's

    [size=13pt]Projecting the Vikings' 53-Man Roster: Running Backs[/size]

    In our quest to project the 53-man roster for the Vikings, thus far we've filled three spots with quarterbacks.
    Continuing along with the offensive theme, we're going to take a look at the guys that the Minnesota offense really revolves around, our running backs.....

    Tapeh is basically Tony Richardson minus 10 years.
    This is what I tried telling some people. Richardson was good but he is getting old. We will not miss a beat with Tapeh. If anything we have gained one.

    Isn't Dugan more of the H-Back/TE like Jimmy K? So why is Jimmy K not listed as well?

    I was wondering that myself. They shouldn't have Dugan on there. When does he even line up in the backfield?

    Dugan was a versitile.. FB / TE.. so listing him here is kinda.. sliding him between the 2 positions.

    I believe he will be on the roster for his veritility.. esp if we loose either or our 2 TE's above him.


    I really do follow with him on this though.

    Potential League MVP:
    Adrian Peterson
    Best Backup RB in the NFL:
    Chester Taylor
    The "Other" RB:
    Maurice Hicks
    Fullbacks:
    Thomas Tapeh (starter), Jeff Dugan, Naufahu Tahi
    <maybe switch tahi and dugan in depth>
    Cut:
    Arkee Whitlock (because I don't think he has any practice squad eligibility left)
    Practice Squad Candidate:
    Albert Young
