Which Minnesota Vikings players have something to prove in 2020?

The Minnesota Vikings have a  lot of question marks on their roster this year. They have some players who will be thrust into starting roles for the first time in their careers. They have a few new faces who will be putting on the purple jersey for the first time and they also have some guys on the roster who are heading into a prove-it type of season.

These players could be ones that either didn’t live up to the hype a year ago or ones that find themselves in new situations with the Vikings. These are guys who Minnesota will need to step up and show that they can overcome the challenges their new circumstances put them in.

If the Vikings are going to advance further in the playoffs and potentially compete for a Super Bowl title in 2020, they’ll need these players to prove themselves.

Whether it’s living up to their high draft status or playing as a starter for the first time, let’s check out five members of Minnesota’s roster who find themselves with something to prove this year.
