Third-year veteran Raonall Smith is the front-runner to fill in for Claiborne.
It sounds like he is beating out Nattiel for the spot. We have never seen Smith play in the regular season with the first unit. It will be intresting to see how he reacts, hes been with the vikes for 3 years and now its time to see what he can do. I'm exited for the guy, hes finally healthy and all he needs is a chance. Hell if he gets in there and makes plays they will keep him there. Big game for him sunday!
