Raekwon Davis – DE/DT (Alabama)
Linval Joseph had a good year, overall, but he will be 32 next season and the Vikings may not decide to keep him around on the $11.15 million he is due in 2020, especially since they would free up more than $10.4 million if he were to be released.
Raekwon Davis is a dominant presence both on the interior and edge of the defensive line. Davis’ skills came to the forefront after a standout performance in Alabama’s national championship win over Georgia in 2017.
He had 11.5 sacks during his college career and he would fit in well with Minnesota’s defense, which could see more rotation along the line due to the success moving Danielle Hunter and Everson Griffen to the defensive tackle spots during their incredible playoff win over the New Orleans Saints.
There is no doubt Davis’ skills can make a tremendous impact in the NFL. He possesses that rare combination of size, strength, and speed that could end up being a nightmare for opposing offensive lineman.
