The Minnesota Vikings made some headlines at the NFL Scouting Combine, but who are some names they could walk away with during April’s NFL Draft?
With the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine recently wrapping up, the Minnesota Vikings are ready to kick off an eventful offseason. As several players’ salaries push up against the salary cap, the team will have to find a way to create cap room through restructures or even releases.
With other players on the trading block, this all means that the Vikings will have plenty of holes to fill in order to sustain their level of success from 2019 and with limited funds available in free agency. The most likely route to fill those holes will be in the NFL Draft.
In a class that will be loaded with elite talent at wide receiver, offensive tackle, and cornerback (among other positions), Minnesota will have a chance to plug some impact guys into their lineup. With these new players, the Vikings will hope they can fix the holes that currently exist on their roster and possibly even some new ones that pop up after they make their other roster decisions.
After analyzing Minnesota’s needs, we’ll take a look at who could wind up heading to the Twin Cities come April and what could happen in the coming weeks as they officially head into NFL Draft season.
