Nickell Robey-Coleman – CB
Nickell Robey-Coleman is actually someone who the Vikings pursued in the past. Minnesota was interested in his services back in 2017, but the corner ended up signing with the Los Angeles Rams instead.
Despite solid performances by the corner in each of the last three seasons, the Rams actually decided to part ways with Robey-Coleman recently when they declined his contract option for 2020.
Since entering the NFL in 2013 as an undrafted free agent out of USC, Robey-Coleman has developed into one of the best slot corners in the league. With Mackensie Alexander recently deciding to sign with the Cincinnati Bengals, the Vikings are in need of finding someone to be their slot corner for next season.
At 28-years-old, Robey-Coleman still has plenty of football left to play before his career in the NFL comes to an end. Last year, he finished with 36 tackles, seven pass breakups, and two forced fumbles. He also allowed just one touchdown to his coverage last season.
Robey-Coleman has some things he could work on improving. But give him a few months under the guidance of Mike Zimmer and he could emerge as a great addition for Minnesota’s defense.
