Final Thoughts:

After the moves they made in free agency, guard appears to be the biggest need for the Vikings as they head into the 2019 NFL Draft.

In round one, this is the area Minnesota should address. They can then follow that up by taking the best talent they find at either wide receiver or defensive tackle with their selection in the second round.

Then in round three, the Vikings should see some good players available at running back and they should take one to be the primary back up to Dalvin Cook in 2019. The other option for Minnesota in round three would be to double dip at offensive line and get another guard or a prospect who can be a swing player that could help out at tackle and guard.

The Vikings could then use their later-round draft picks to fill out the depth chart at safety, tight end, linebacker, defensive tackle, and wide receiver. If Minnesota follows this plan, they will fill their biggest holes and they should be a much-improved team for 2019.

That being said, all it takes if for one team to make a surprise pick that shakes up an entire plan. Surprises are what makes the NFL Draft so exciting each year and the reason why so many people love to watch it.
