After the start of the 2020 NFL free agency period, what are three Minnesota Vikings draft needs that have increased following all the roster moves?

The first week of the 2020 NFL free agency period is in the books and it was one that saw the Minnesota Vikings make a plethora of roster moves.

The Vikings gave new deals to some players like quarterback Kirk Cousins, backup quarterback Sean Mannion, kicker Dan Bailey, and punter Britton Colquitt. They also let some guys go and even brought in a new big defensive tackle.

The big signing Minnesota made last week was adding the “Juggernaut” Michael Pierce to be the team’s new run-stuffer in the middle of their defense.

The Vikings also traded star wide receiver Stefon Diggs to the Buffalo Bills, shockingly cut their second-best offensive lineman Josh Kline, and couldn’t come to terms with longtime defensive end Everson Griffen.

These moves closed certain issues for Minnesota, but also increased some previous needs and opened up some brand new ones. Positions like cornerback, safety, and offensive tackle remain strong needs heading into this year’s NFL Draft. But what are the few areas of need that have increased for the Vikings since the start of free agency?
