Minnesota Vikings re-sign OT Phil Loadholt

Phil Loadholt is a top flight right tackle, ranking 8th among right tackles on ProFootballFocus last season. He’s graded out well above average in two straight seasons, but right tackles should not be able like left tackles because they don’t protect the blind side. Credit the Vikings for not overpaying Loadholt, with this 4 year, 25 million dollar deal with 7 million guaranteed. He’s a fierce run blocker, 4th among offensive tackles and 2nd among right tackles in that aspect last season, and he holds up in pass protection as well, with penalties (11) being his only weakness. Adrian Peterson has to be pretty happy about this re-signing.

Grade: B
