The Minnesota Vikings have many names linked to the franchise heading into the 2020 NFL Draft. But who are some alternative options they could look at?

The Minnesota Vikings are less than two weeks away from the 2020 NFL Draft. As usual, mock drafts are flying around the internet at a rapid pace as fans and analysts attempt to figure out how the Vikings are going to fill all their holes on the roster.

As fans attempt to overload mock draft machines, there are several names that you’ll see linked with a team. Justin Jefferson in the first round. Antoine Winfield Jr. in the second. Tyler Biadasz in the third. Tyler Johnson in the fourth (you get the idea).

But usually what Minnesota does differs greatly from what the fans and analysts believe will happen. So who are some names that could be on the Vikings’ radar and how would these players help accomplish what the team wants to achieve in 2020?

In this “Dark Horse” mock draft, we’ll take a look at some prospects that aren’t being mentioned as frequently but could still fit the bill. We’ll also see what these alternatives can bring to the table and if they can help Minnesota continue to keep their winning ways.
