6. Wide Receiver

The Vikings have two of the best receivers in the NFL in Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs. What the depth chart behind them will look like in 2019 is the mystery.

It’s unclear if Laquon Treadwell will be back, as he could get cut or traded. Aldrick Robinson is a free-agent, but he played well and should be re-signed. Undrafted rookie Chad Beebe showed sticky hands, solid route running, and he could find a larger role next season.

What Minnesota’s receiving corps lacks is size and they could bring in a big-bodied, low-end veteran, or a mid-round rookie to flesh out this position.

5. Kicker

When you think Minnesota Vikings a few things come immediately to mind; the color purple, horned helmets, and kicking problems.

The Vikings used a fifth-round pick on Auburn kicker Dan Carlson last year and that proved to be a disaster. His replacement, Dan Bailey wasn’t much better so now the team is in the same boat they were a season ago.

There will be plenty of veteran kickers available in free agency and the chances are very high Minnesota inks one of them. There is zero chance they bring in a rookie this season after what happened last year with Carlson.
