Defensive Tackle - This is where the defense starts, and Leslie Frazier's scheme is built around these Kevin William and Pat Williams.  When they are both in the game at the same time, the defense clicks.  However the depth at the position leaves a lot to be asked for.  Fred Evans and Letroy Guion are decent enough back ups but we need to find a replacement for Jimmy Kennedy.  They also experienced very good results using Robison here on third down by having the four best pass rushers on the field at the same time.  

Defensive End - This is probably our deepest position on the team.  Everyone knows Jared Allen, but Ray Edwards and Brian Robison are very good players too.  Hopefully we will be getting Kenechi Udeze back as well. If everyone can stay healthy, the Vikings will be able to battle the Giants for the best defensive line in football.
