The Minnesota Vikings drafted several cornerbacks in the 2020 NFL Draft but what should the team expect from Temple defensive back Harrison Hand?

The 2020 NFL Draft was a numbers game for the Minnesota Vikings. They brought in 15 NCAA prospects during the three-day event with the majority of those selections coming on Day 3 in rounds four through seven.

In the fifth round at pick No. 169 overall, Minnesota made the decision to select Temple cornerback Harrison Hand. Since the team had a need for players at the position, casting a large net in hopes of getting quality players makes a lot of sense.

Standing 6-feet and weighing 192 pounds, Hand was a productive defensive back at the college level who the Vikings are hoping can develop into a productive member of the roster and help fill the gap left by the departure of Xavier Rhodes, Trae Waynes, and Mackensie Alexander.

But what are the strengths and weaknesses of Harrison Hand? And what should the Minnesota Vikings expect from the Temple defensive back? Let’s dive into the member of the purple and gold starting with the positives.
