Ice Cold Take: The young talent will keep developing

There is nothing bold about saying the Minnesota Vikings are a young team on the rise. With the exception of some great veterans, these players have a lot of room to grow and mature. The team is bringing many of these young players along slowly, but as they hone their craft, keeping them on the sidelines will become more and more difficult.

Guys like Danielle Hunter, Trae Waynes, Stefon Diggs, and others spent a lot of time watching from the bench last year, but stepped up when put on the football field. With increased opportunities and more experience under their belts, the future of the franchise appears to be in good hands.
