Sure it’s only mid-September, but it’s never too early for the Minnesota Vikings to start planning ahead for the 2020 NFL Draft.
The Minnesota Vikings are sitting at 1-1 after a couple of games into the 2019 season. So far, the Vikings have been able to move the ball well on the ground and they have had a nice resurgence in their pass rush led by Danielle Hunter and a rejuvenated Everson Griffen.
By all accounts, Minnesota appears to be a team that should not only contend in their division, but they should also challenge for the NFC crown. That being said, they do have plenty of draft needs that have already emerged early in the season.
The Vikings’ offensive line is improved this year, but it could still use some young, talented pieces. Minnesota could stand to land another interior disruptor on their defensive line and a young linebacker to upgrade over Ben Gedeon. The Vikings also have issues in the secondary as they’ve been bitten hard by injuries at the corner position this season and they have been forced to play some late or undrafted rookies that really shouldn’t be seeing the field.
Yes, it’s only September, but there are already a few needs that the Vikings have for the 2020 NFL Draft.
