Which recent Minnesota Vikings draft picks can be labeled as busts?

The Minnesota Vikings are a team, that for the most part, has been built through the NFL Draft. They are loaded with players on both sides of the ball that were handpicked by Vikings general manager Rick Spielman and his scouting department.

Many of these players have developed into stars for Minnesota, while some turned into solid starters, and others may have grown into a key situational role player. Whatever their parts might be, some of these guys have proved their worth or exceeded where they were drafted.

Not every pick pans out though. Some players just don’t carry over well from college to the pros and they don’t live up to the promise they showed.

The Vikings do have some players that have been with the team for a few years now and they have fallen into that category. None of these guys have been busts on the level of Laquon Treadwell, but each of them has had a disappointing career in the NFL so far.

So who are some of Minnesota’s recent draft picks that can now, after at least three years with the team, be deemed busts, and will always be seen in that light?
