3. Younger CBs catching on effectively
Zimmer was requested if he is needed to dial down protection assignments within the secondary due to how younger the cornerbacks group is.
“No, probably not,” he stated. “They’ve caught on fairly effectively. In the event that they weren’t understanding issues higher, we would change issues round, however with the 2 safeties (Harrison Smith and Anthony Harris) we now have, we’ve not needed to change something from what we have finished prior to now or something shifting ahead.”
4. Backup QB battle continues
There is not any query about who Minnesota’s beginning quarterback might be, however it is going to be fascinating to see how the place shakes out behind him.
The Vikings at the moment have 4 QBs on their roster. To date by means of coaching camp, veteran Sean Mannion has principally been practising with the 2s. Jake Browning, who was an undrafted rookie in 2019, and seventh-round draft choose Nate Stanley have shared reps with the 3s.
However with out preseason video games, it is a bit of more durable to guage the place in game-day situations.
“I believe they’ve all had good days. I believe Nate Stanley reveals plenty of promise,” Zimmer stated. “I believe he is acquired an enormous arm, he is instinctive. There was one play the place the protection blitzed, and he sort of rolled away from the blitz and hit the receiver within the flat.
“I assumed Jake Browning did effectively,” Zimmer added. “And I believe Sean’s had a superb camp.”
