    Vikes' defensive line after the Jared Allen trade

    I just wondered, who will be the starting defensive linemen for the Vikings in 2008 and in which position? Much have happened the past couple of days and it has only been good news.



    Kenechi Udeze has recovered from his illness and looks fit to play for the Vikings again.
    Jared Allen is now a Viking after a trade in which we gave Kansa City Chiefs one 1st round pick and two 3rd round picks in this years draft (correct me if I'm wrong)

    So how would the line-up at D-line look like next season? (In particular the defensive ends since I think it's pretty clear that we'll keep the Williams brothers in the middle)
    Maybe Udeze on one side and Allen on the other... We definitely have to keep the pro-bowler Allen on the field, but where would he play, left side or right side?

    ... And while we're at it. Who would claim the Vikings have the best defensive line in the league? I would!
    Of four guys, three have been to the Pro Bowl. The Williams Wall is well know and feared by every running back and Jared Allen led the league in sacks last season. Enough said!!!

    Re: Vikes' defensive line after the Jared Allen trade

    I could see it working like this


    LDE





    DT





    DT





    RDE

    Allen



    KWill




    PWill




    Robison/
    Mitchell



















    Edwards
    Robison


    Robison and Edwards would rotate in and out just like AD/CT did last year
    Allen gets moved to LDE since we have noone to play LDE, and he'll match up against the opposing teams weak side.

    Will Udeze be put on the PUP list?

    Allen KW PW and Robison
    look good to me.

    We have Evans as a back up for the DT spots.

    We took on some no namers from other teams this offseason which will provide competition for back up positions.

    Re: Vikes' defensive line after the Jared Allen trade

    Keneche will come back and take back his role as our best LDE, until then.......

    RDE - Robison beats our Edwards but still combine to make life hell from that side
    DT - Kevin\Evans\Wyms
    DT - Phat Pat\Kendrick Allen\Rookie
    LDE - Allen\Mitchell\Wyms

    91 Ray Edwards DE 23 6-5 268 2 Purdue
    [s]73 Otis Grigsby DE 27 6-3 260 2 Kentucky [/s]
    99 Erasmus James DE 25 6-4 266 3 Wisconsin
    92 Jayme Mitchell DE 24 6-6 285 2 Mississippi
    96 Brian Robison DE 24 6-3 267 R Texas
    95 Kenechi Udeze DE 25 6-3 281 4 USC
    67 Kenderick Allen DT 29 6-5 328 5 LSU
    90 Fred Evans DT 24 6-4 305 2 Texas State

    95 Ellis Wyms DT 29 6-3 290 7 Mississippi State
    93 Kevin Williams DL 27 6-5 311 5 Oklahoma State
    94 Pat Williams DL 35 6-3 317 11 Texas


    DL will take up 10 roster positions this year and will have some many different looks that you guys will get confused who will be starting and what position they play.
    ;D
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    Re: Vikes' defensive line after the Jared Allen trade

    BTW, isn't Allen a RDE?

    If that is true, why move him?

    On the KC site, they have him lined up against the LT.

    Uncalled for!

    Educating is one thing, belittling is another.

    I like this line-up a lot. I hope Robison is a starter for the 2008 season.

    What about James, I mean... I know he's no great shakes, but he can step up and play a role as well.
