Who were the most disappointing Minnesota Vikings rookies from the 2020 class?
The Minnesota Vikings nailed their 2020 NFL Draft class. They found a superstar wide receiver in Justin Jefferson. He set franchise and league records at the receiving position and he will be the team’s No. 1 option in the passing game for many years to come.
The Vikings also landed their starting cornerback duo for the future in Jeff Gladney and Cameron Dantzler. They both had up and down seasons, but the experience they gained will be huge for them in 2021 and beyond.
Minnesota also added a starter to their offensive line with second-round pick Ezra Cleveland. However, where he ultimately ends up at this point is up in the air.
D.J. Wonnum showed plenty of potential on the defensive side of the ball, as did Harrison Hand. The Vikings got a lot of run out of a number of their 2020 draft picks and this was a rare class that paid off in the first season.
While Minnesota hit on most of their choices, a few players didn’t live up to their draft billing.
