The Minnesota Vikings have been dealing with issues at guard for several seasons. Who could help fill that void in the 2020 NFL Draft?

For the Minnesota Vikings, the question of “can he play guard?” has become a meme over the past couple of seasons. With the failed conversions of Mike Remmers and Pat Elflein, pressure up the middle has destroyed the Vikings offensive line and caused the unit to fail when they need it the most.

With Garrett Bradbury having an uneven rookie season and Josh Kline being released earlier this year, Minnesota once again has holes on the interior of their offensive line.

For what seems like a problem that has plagued the team over the past decade, the Vikings will try to address the issue once again in the 2020 NFL Draft.

The good news for Minnesota is that there are several athletic prospects in this year’s class that can play in Gary Kubiak’s zone-blocking scheme. Whether the Vikings try to use a high pick on an interior offensive lineman or perhaps a mid-round pick, they should find an intriguing prospect that can either compete for a starting job or develop into a solid player.

So let’s look at some of the names who make sense for Minnesota to consider and what it might take to get these players to land in the Twin Cities.
