I recall wanting to draft him after the 4th round. Vikes draft OL a lot and aren’t afraid to cut bait when they don’t think he’s a player. 
 

They cut Elflein last year and we signed him. Let’s see how this year’s Vikes cast-off holds up

You realize how bad GVR has to be for Saleh and Lafleur to be looking back at guys they coached in 2017 as potential replacements  😂😂😂

Lesson was apparently not learned with the Ryan Kalil fiasco of ‘19.

Just looked him up....started four games at RG for the Vikings last year (replacing an injured Elflein) and apparently was brutally bad...

Sounds like he might actually be worse than Van Roten... yikes.  Third year in the league.

Blake Hance who can play all oline positions was the cleveland LT last game and did well.

In any case most in season guys are fodder who are lousy.

Why we never drafted another olineman last year i still a big ? for me

Dru is Samoan.  Tough as nails culture.  Reminds me of this flick is about the Maori people also in the South Pacific.  If you've never seen it, do so.  Flew under the radar but was one of the best at the time. Just wasnt your typical mainstream hollywood garbage.  But be warned. Its not for children.  Rotten tomatoes rated it 93% https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/once_were_warriors

Not only that but the dude hasn't even played since '18. It really does speak to the play of GVR ... anyone w/a pulse should be an upgrade.

Perhaps you and DWC can get together.  I heard he just quit his job becuse he signed a big RAP contract. :)

2018 last year.  i must've been thinking of some other jet cast off who went on to play well. ducasse played from minn, chi, and buf.

Dozier and Obooshi have played ok since leaving.  
 

To respond to the downvote, Pat Elflein is no Hall of Famer, but I think he showed the difference between what someone like he costs and someone like Dan Feeney costs.  With a rookie Qb and our cap space, Elflein with GVR as backup and Feeney somewhere else was a better use of resources
