Following the conclusion of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings signed added handful of undrafted free agents to their current roster.

Heading into the 2020 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings had a total of 12 picks to make. However, Vikings general manager Rick Spielman did his usual wheeling-and-dealing and it resulted in the team adding a total of 15 new players to their roster by the time the draft concluded on Saturday.

Taking 15 players in one draft is not only a Minnesota franchise record since the format was switched to seven rounds in 1994, but it’s also the record for the most selections in NFL history with the current format.

Some might view this as a bit of overkill by Spielman and the Vikings. But Minnesota had a number of holes on their roster to take care of heading into the draft and they did everything they could to make sure most of their open spots were filled.

Following the final round on Saturday, the work didn’t stop for the Vikings. Minnesota wasted no time in signing a handful of undrafted free agents.

Who are some of the players the Vikings added after this year’s draft that will attempt to follow in the same successful footsteps as some of the team’s previous undrafted signings like Adam Thielen and John Randle?
