How have the Minnesota Vikings rookies fared so far?

The Minnesota Vikings are a quarter of the way through the 2020 season. It hasn’t quite gone the way they hoped, as the team got off to a disappointing start and are currently sitting at 1-3. Their last two contests have been improvements and the rookie class has had a big part of that success.

The Vikings have recently gotten solid play out of players from their 2020 class on both sides of the football. These players have really progressed quickly and have become key parts of the Vikings’ team this season.

While some of Minnesota’s first-year players have already developed into solid contributors, others have yet to find their groove and some didn’t even make the team. But with the Vikings having a rookie class that is made up of 15 guys, having a wide range of contributors or lack thereof isn’t a shock.

Let’s check out which Minnesota rookies through the first quarter of the season have produced and also the ones who have yet to do so. Then at the end, we’ll even name the best Vikings rookie after the team’s first four games of the year.
