26: Joe Berger – OL
Probably one of the most underappreciated Vikings of the decade, Berger was willing to do just about anything to help the team out. The best years of his NFL career were with Minnesota where he spent time as both their starting center and their starting right guard.
25: Trae Waynes – CB
Selected in the first round of the 2016 NFL Draft, Waynes took a little while with his adjustment from college to the pros. Once he figured it out, he ended up being a solid part of the Vikings defense for multiple years. Did he live up to his first-round pick status though? That’s up for debate.
24: John Sullivan – C
A sixth-round pick out of Notre Dame in 2008, Sullivan quickly emerged as an important part of Minnesota’s offensive line. He started every game for the Vikings from 2012 to 2014 before missing the entire 2015 season due to issues with his back.
23: E.J. Henderson – LB
After breaking his leg near the end of the 2009 season, Henderson somehow managed to recover in time for Minnesota’s first game in 2010. The veteran linebacker looked great in his return as he accumulated more than 100 total tackles in both of his 2010 and 2011 campaigns with the Vikings.
