18: Dalvin Cook – RB

If his next few years are anything like his performance in 2019, Cook should end up as one of the top two or three Vikings players during the upcoming decade. After his first two seasons were hampered by injuries, he rebounded last year and proved why he deserves to be regarded as one of the top running backs in the entire NFL.

17: Kirk Cousins – QB

The top quarterback on this list, but Cousins‘ ranking shouldn’t be a discredit to his accomplishments since signing with Minnesota in 2018. After a rough first year with the Vikings, the quarterback came back in 2019 and led the team to a winning season that included an impressive playoff victory on the road over the heavily favored New Orleans Saints.

16: Kevin Williams – DT

One of the best defensive lineman to ever suit up for Minnesota, the last decade is where Williams saw his time in the Twin Cities come to an end. After earning his sixth career trip to the Pro Bowl in 2010, he went on to remain a starter with the Vikings for another three years before exiting in 2014.

15: Percy Harvin – WR

Despite only spending three seasons with Minnesota during the last decade, Harvin’s constant playmaking ability made it seem like his tenure in purple was much longer. Since 2010, few players have been able to step on the field for the Vikings and have the potential like him to score every time the ball got in their hands.
