With the rookies the Minnesota Vikings added during the 2020 NFL Draft, which players should worry about their spot on the team’s roster for next season?
Heading into the 2020 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings had about a third of their roster to fill in order to get close to the offseason 90-man limit.
For a little bit, it seemed like Vikings general manager Rick Spielman was trying to fill the rest of the team’s roster during the draft. Minnesota didn’t fill all of their vacancies, but they still ended the draft with an additional 15 players.
Then shortly after the draft, the Vikings signed 12 more rookies who were left in the pool of players that went undrafted.
So currently, Minnesota is pretty close to their 90-man roster limit and they will have to eventually cut it down to 53 players by the start of the upcoming regular season.
Some of these new guys are going to end up taking away spots from veterans who were on Minnesota’s roster prior to this year’s NFL Draft. Who are some of the veteran players that should be worried about their chances of making the Vikings’ final 2020 roster following the team’s additions during the draft?
