Pro Football Focus has begun to release their top 101 list for this past year. They've released numbers 101-81 and the Vikings already have two representatives.

Quote:
98. Phil Loadholt, OT, Minnesota Vikings (2012: Unranked)

The only right tackle to make the list, Loadholt would finish the year our second-ranked overall right tackle (behind Zach Strief, but with a much better run block grade). Heís become the prototype right tackle, more than good enough with his pass protection and able to generate substantial movement in the run game. Throw in getting penalized just three times and heís delivered on his contract so far.

Best Performance: Week 17, DET @ MIN, +4.1

Key Stat: Graded negatively with his run blocking just three times all year.

Quote:
87. John Sullivan, C, Minnesota Vikings (2012: 26th)

He wasnít able to match his 2012 season as he battled back from offseason surgery. A strong finish to the year showed that Sullivan was more than a one-season wonder and worthy of a spot in the Top 101. After turning his first eight games into a +4.5 grade, he was much stronger down the stretch as he finished the year with six grades in the green (something he replicated with his run blocking).

Best Performance: Week 17, DET @ MIN, +3.1

Key Stat: Sullivan graded negatively just four times all year.

Quote:
38. Adrian Peterson, RB, Minnesota Vikings (2012: 2nd)

It was always going to be hard for Peterson to follow up his remarkable 2013 campaign and so it proved. Now thatís not to say he had a bad year, and without injuries limiting his playing time (and performance at times) he likely would have finished much higher. Still forced a very healthy 58 missed tackles that were second most of any running back while ending the year our third ranked runner. For most that would bring smiles to their faces while we suspect for Peterson itís just extra motivation to finish higher next year.

Best Performance: Week 13, CHI @ MIN, +6.1

Key Stat: Peterson finished the year with the third highest Elusive Rating of all running backs.

The Oline has made great strides, we have Jeff Davidson to thank.

Loadholt being the only RT on the list should tell us something. Its simply not a valued position, there areny many great RTs, and even the best RT in the game (according to PFF), is often viewed as someone that should be replaced.

I would bet the Vikings have 2 more players on this list: Fusco and Peterson. I know they love Ellison there, but taking positional value into account I doubt his score gets him there.

They've all been released; 3 Vikings out of 101 players.
