Halfway through the 2019 season, what are the five biggest issues the Minnesota Vikings have to address in the 2020 NFL Draft?
Nine games into their 2019 season, the Minnesota Vikings have a winning record and they are in a good position to make a deep playoff run if they can keep on playing the way they have so far. As good as this team is this year, the Vikings still have plenty of holes that they can fill on both sides of the ball.
It is only November and while the NFL Draft is still six months away, the order is starting to fall into place. Looking at teams’ records and just how they are playing, we can at least get a sense of the slot range where most teams will be selecting in 2020.

Speaking of those need areas, let’s get to what Minnesota’s top five needs for the 2020 NFL Draft currently are at this point in the season. These are ranked from least needed to the biggest and most glaring need there is.
