The 2020 NFL Draft is right around the corner. As all-star games wrap up, who may the Minnesota Vikings be looking at to reshape the roster?
Ah, here we are again. The 2020 NFL Draft is creeping closer and closer for the Minnesota Vikings with every tick of the clock.
The East-West Shrine Game is in the rearview, the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl has come and gone, and the Senior Bowl was in full effect this week with practices and Saturday’s game. Potential 2020 draft picks are getting their final opportunities to perform in-game in front of scouts.
This is a pivotal time for players, coaches, and front offices alike. As the Vikings sit with the 25th overall pick in April’s draft, the final homework is being done.
Minnesota is no stranger to picking in the back half of the first round. Since selecting Trae Waynes with the 11th overall pick in 2015, the Vikings have not selected a player above 18th overall. If you recall, that was 2019 first-round pick Garrett Bradbury.
With yet another late first-round selection this year, can Minnesota find gold and come away with a premier talent? The 2020 draft class is loaded with talent, hopefully the Vikings can make the most of their selections.
With a ton of holes to fill and aging veterans to replace, Minnesota has quite a bit of work to do. Free agency may be an option to rebuild the roster, but their cap situation is a bit of a mess at the moment.
The draft, on the other hand, ensures that youth will come to the roster with some potential upside. Before the NFL Combine and Pro Days begin, let’s see who could be some of the prospects the Vikings might land during the seven rounds of the 2020 NFL Draft.
