David Dixon was the most anonymous member of the truly fantastic offensive line that paved the way for the Vikings' record setting offense in 1998.  The tackles were Todd Steussie and Korey Stringer -- two former first round draft picks who were among the league's upper echelon during their Vikings careers.  Center Jeff Christy was a two-time All-Pro.  And left guard Randall McDaniel was the greatest guard of his era and is now enshrined in Canton.  Filling out the line was the humungous Dixon, the first New Zealand native to play in the NFL.  He spent his entire 11 year career in Minnesota and is among the Vikings' all-time leaders in games played by an offensive lineman.
