Matt Asiata is getting the majority of second-team reps at OTAs.
The Vikings see Jerick McKinnon as a third-down back for the most part right now. It leaves the slow-footed, 234-pound Asiata behind Adrian Peterson on early downs. He'll have a little goal-line appeal if Peterson ever misses time, but he's not a strong handcuff. McKinnon's raw athleticism should allow him to surge ahead of Asiata by midseason. Jun 2 - 11:06 AM
