With the 2020 NFL Draft set to kick off on Thursday, who are some of the prospects the Minnesota Vikings could realistically end up with during the first three rounds?

It’s finally here, the first day of the 2020 NFL Draft for the Minnesota Vikings and every other team around the league.

This year’s draft is going to be memorable for a number of reasons and not just because there’s a chance that Mike Zimmer won’t get a guy he wants because he forgot his WiFi password.

The Vikings currently have 12 picks in this week’s draft and they’re likely going to keep most of them to fill a roster that has a bunch of holes. Minnesota’s draft selections are especially important this year since they didn’t have a ton of money to add free agents to their roster this offseason.

On Thursday, the Vikings will kick off the draft with two picks in the first round thanks to their decision to trade Stefon Diggs to the Buffalo Bills last month. Minnesota’s first selection will come at pick No. 22 and then a few slots later, they will get the opportunity to add another player with pick No. 25.

In this specific mock draft, we’ll attempt to guess who the Vikings will draft with the five selections they have in the first three rounds. So after the first two days of this year’s NFL Draft, who are some of the prospects Minnesota might end up with?
