The Minnesota Vikings did an excellent job filling holes during the 2020 NFL Draft, but what questions still remain on the roster even after their draft haul?

By most accounts, the Minnesota Vikings cleaned house during the 2020 NFL Draft. With an NFL-record 15 prospects added to the roster, Vikings general manager Rick Spielman and head coach Mike Zimmer were able to plug many of the holes that existed and replaced them with younger, cheaper, and hopefully more effective players.

While the reviews of the class have been positive, there are still some things that need to be sorted out.

With as many issues as Minnesota had going into the draft, there was no way they were going to fill all of them. In addition, most of the guys they took in the later rounds will be role players, which makes the holes in the starting lineup even more difficult to fill.

Among the questions that still remain are how the Vikings offense will shake out behind Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson and just who will be the odd man out at the cornerback position after Minnesota added three defensive backs in the draft.

In this piece, we’ll take a look at these questions and a few others that still remain for the 2020 Vikings and what will need to take place in order to answer them heading into the virtual offseason and training camp.
