With free agency slowing down and the top guys already signing with teams, it’s time to look ahead to the NFL Draft and who the Minnesota Vikings will be picking.
With the help of The Draft Network’s NFL Mock Draft Tool, let’s go ahead and attempt a full 2020 seven-round mock draft for the Minnesota Vikings.
The Vikings have created clear needs at wide receiver, corner, and defensive end with the departures of Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes, Stefon Diggs, and Everson Griffen during this offseason.
These positions need to be addressed early in the draft. With the wide receiver position group being so deep this year, Minnesota can afford to wait until later in the draft to take one of them. This year’s group of cornerback prospects is also very deep, but more top-heavy and this need should be addressed early, as well as the defensive end position.
The Vikings always seem to be in need of more offensive linemen. There was some improvement in the unit last year, but there is always still room to take even more steps forward.
With this year’s offensive tackle class grading out as one of the better ones in recent history, the plan for Minnesota should be to attack this position in rounds two and three, barring a trade-up or a massive fall from one of the top-four tackles.
So which prospects did the Vikings end up with in this post-free agency seven-round mock draft?
