Minnesota Vikings OTAs: Leslie Frazier Discusses Key Players

The Minnesota Vikings are still doing Organized Team Activities, completing their third and final week before mandatory team minicamp begins next week. After Tuesday's practice, the Star Tribune caught up with Leslie Frazier to discuss several important players for fans to think about this offseason.

There's linebacker Erin Henderson, who seems to be growing more vocal and assuming a greater leadership role on the defense, cornerback Chris Carr, who was signed as a free agent this spring to add much-needed depth in the secondary.

Frazier also discussed safety Jamarca Sanford, a starter last season who is trying to keep his job. This is what the coach had to say about Robert Blanton, who is making the switch from cornerback to safety in the NFL:

"There are some things you look at and you just know will take a little bit of time, just getting accustomed to being out in space. That's different for him. When you have the sideline as a twelfth man at times, you don't have that safety. There's a lot more space and the angles are a lot different. That takes time. But he's getting it and we have to continue to expose him to more situations and we're doing that. I think he'll get it, but it's just a matter of how fast it'll be."
