Who will make impress the Minnesota Vikings and rise up draft boards during the first day of workouts at the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine?
The latest batch of college recruits will strut their stuff on the field at the NFL Scouting Combine this week in front of the Minnesota Vikings and the 31 other teams around the league.
It represents a significant chance for the more than 300 hopefuls to rise up draft boards and result in substantial financial rewards. What these prospects do in the next few days during the testing process could have huge implications on their future.
A series of drills will be conducted during the next four days as scouts scour the prospects for a diamond in the rough that can help their franchise. The Vikings are no different and they will need to draft exceptionally well this year given the questions surrounding their lack of salary cap space.
Prominent additions in free agency are unlikely for Minnesota this offseason. A few of the Vikings’ veteran players could also be released and some tough decisions are going to be made during the next few weeks that will not only impact next season, but the futures of head coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman as well.
Day 1 of the on-field workouts at this year’s Combine sees the quarterbacks, wide receivers, and tight ends take center stage. One would think Minnesota has a keen interest in two of these position groups.
It will be a pivotal day for Zimmer, Spielman, and the Vikings scouting team. Who are a few of the prospects that should be on Minnesota’s radar during this first day of workouts at the Combine?
