Who are some underrated options the Minnesota Vikings could look at with their first-round choice in the 2020 NFL Draft?

The East-West Shrine Game and Senior Bowl have already come and gone and the 2020 NFL Draft is beginning to take shape. Prospects have already been put under the microscope and tested by NFL scouts, coaches, and personnel men.

Many players’ stocks have been rising after solid performances at these events and others are dropping down the board due to some standard performances or health concerns. With the Combine and Pro Days still on the horizon, the stock of these prospects will continue to fluctuate right up until draft day itself on April 23.

That being said, we can at least get a rough sense of where some guys could and will come off the board. With the Minnesota Vikings picking 25th, they are going to have to wait and hold their breath that a guy they love falls to them in the first round.

They could get aggressive and move up, but the style of Vikings general manager Rick Spielman is more apt to move down than up in order to pounce on a guy. If Minnesota’s main targets are off the board though, they could still find quality talent at a secondary position of need.
