The #Vikings "Numbers Game!" (71-80)

From #92Noon Thursday --- newest edition of the Numbers Game. 71-80, from Riley Reiff to Karter Schult! Listen below to the #92Noon segment from this morning:

71 - LT RILEY REIFF -- MATT KALIL OUT, RILEY REIFF IN! 5 YEAR, $58M FREE AGENT GRAB INTO THE 2017 SEASON FOLLOWING HIS FIRST 5 YEARS IN DETROIT. PLAYED IN 15 & 13 GAMES, RESPECTIVELY, IN HIS TWO CAMPAIGNS AT LEFT TACKLE HERE PLUS THE TWO PLAYOFF GAMES IN 2017. SEEMS LIKE HE'S BEEN VERY GOOD, NOT ELITE. TURNING 31 IN DECEMBER. I'D SAY, ALONG WITH EVERYBODY ON THE O-LINE, THAT HE CAN BE AND NEEDS TO BE BETTER IN 2019.

72 - T STORM NORTON -- UNDRAFTED IN 2017, SNAGGED BY THE LIONS, THEN WENT TO ARIZONA'S PRACTICE SQUAD BEFORE JOINING THE VIKINGS LATE IN 2017. HE WAS ELEVATED TO THE ACTIVE ROSTER ONCE LAST SEASON AND TALLIED 3 SNAPS ON SPECIAL TEAMS. REIFF/ONEILL/HILL---?...THERE IS CLEARLY AN OPPORTUNITY WITH NEW GROUP, NEW COACHES TO PROVE HIMSELF AS A RESERVE OPTION

73 - G DRU SAMIA -- STUD GUARD AT OKLAHOMA, AND A 2019 4TH ROUND PICK ROOKIE. LOOKED LIKE AN AGGRESSIVE, GRITTY FIGHTER ON THE SOONERS O-LINE, HOPING HE BRINGS THAT TO THE NFL...I KNOW HE'S WORKING HIS ASS OFF TO COMPETE, DON'T KNOW IF HE'S READY TO SUPPLANT JOSH KLINE AS THE STARTING RIGHT GUARD.

74 - DE STACY KEELY -- WAS AT SOUTH DAKOTA STATE FOR A YEAR, ORIGINALLY TO PLAY TIGHT END. 2 YEARS AT A COMMUNITY COLLEGE, SWITCHING TO DEFENSE...TRANSFERRED TO UAB FOR FINAL TWO YEARS, WITH 5.5 TFL AND 4 SACKS IN 23 GAMES. 6-6 220, SO HE'S STILL BUILT LIKE A TIGHT END.

74 - T OLISAEMEKA UDOH -- 2019 6TH ROUND PICK BY THE PURPLE...ALL ACADEMIC AND FCS ALL AMERICAN OUT OF ELON(HAD TO GOOGLE WHERE ELON IS...IT'S IN NORTH CAROLINA). 6-5 320, DON'T KNOW MUCH ELSE ABOUT HIM. PRACTICE SQUAD APPEARS TO BE HIS NEXT STOP.

75 - RT BRIAN O'NEILL -- TOOK OVER FOR RASHOD HILL AND DIDN'T LOOK BACK(STARTED 11 GAMES). 2ND ROUND PICK FROM PITT IN 2018. SAW HIM GET BULLRUSHED BACK SEVERAL TIMES, BUT HIS ATHLETICISM KEPT HIM FROM GETTING TURN-STYLED. COMPETITIVE KID, ADDED SIZE IN OFFSEASON AND CAN PROBABLY ADD MORE. GOOD FIRST YEAR TO BUILD FROM. STARTING RIGHT TACKLE BY A WIDE MARGIN.

76 - T AVIANTE COLLINS -- UNDRAFTED 2017, ACTIVATED AND PLAYED IN 28 OFFENSIVE SNAPS HIS ROOKIE SEASON...I THOUGHT HE WAS IN ON THE FINAL 53 MAN ROSTER INTO 2018, BUT AN ELBOW INJURY TOOK HIM OFF THE TABLE FOR THE YEAR. NOW, HE'S HEALTHY AND WILL COMPETE FOR A BACK-UP ROLE ON THE TEAM...FEELS LIKE IT'S HIM AND STORM NORTON IN A BATTLE.

78 - G DAKOTA DOZIER -- THE JETS TOOK HIM IN THE 4TH ROUND OF THE 2014 DRAFT...37 GAMES AND 7 STARTS FOR NYJ BEFORE JOINING THE VIKINGS THIS SPRING. 28 YEARS OLD, I DON'T THINK HE'S GOING TO BLOW ANYONE AWAY DURING CAMP, AND I'VE HEARD NOTHING POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE ABOUT HIM SO FAR. BUT THIS COULD BE THE GUY THAT GETS A DANNY ISIDORA-TYPE CUT, IF HE PERFORMS WELL IN CAMP/PRESEASON.

79 - G TIANO PUPUNGATOA -- A HASTINGS NATIVE, WENT TO RIVER FALLS HIGH SCHOOL THEN SOUTH DAKOTA STATE. ADDED TO THE ROSTER UPON THE WAIVING OF RB ROC THOMAS. HAD TRIED OUT FOR BOTH VIKES AND CARDINALS IN MINI-CAMP. WILL BE WORKING AT GUARD. LONNNNNG SHOT, BUT HE'S ONE OF US.

****Sorry Tiano, but you were waived last week, and Tyler Catalina took your spot.......TYLER IS 6-6 315. UNDRAFTED PICKUP FOR THE REDSKINS IN 2017 AFTER A YEAR AT GEORGIA & 3 YEARS AT RHODE ISLAND. HE PLAYED IN 7 GAMES AND STARTED 2 IN 2017, PROTECTING....REDSKINS QB KIRK COUSINS! HURT ALL 2018, NOW HE'S HERE. CATALINA IS UP AGAINST IT WITH THE AMOUNT OF COMPETITION FOR BACK-UP OL SPOTS, BUT THIS WILL GET HASHED OUT DURING THE PRESEASON GAMES AND REMAINDER OF CAMP.

79 - DE KARTER SCHULT -- UNDRAFTED 2017 FROM NORTHERN IOWA...SIGNED WITH CLEVELAND IN MAY, WAIVED IN SEPTEMBER 2017. SIGNED WITH PANTHERS IN MAY 2018, WAIVED IN AUGUST. PLAYED IN THE AAF WITH SALT LAKE, THEN JOINED THE VIKINGS EARLIER THIS YEAR.
