What are four positions the Minnesota Vikings will not be using their 2021 first-round draft pick on?

The Minnesota Vikings pick in the first half of the 2021 NFL Draft, holding the 14th overall selection. They’ll surely be looking to address some of the biggest weaknesses on their roster with that choice.

The Vikings have some major holes at guard on their offensive line and need to add some more pass rushers to their defensive line with a premier edge rusher or a penetrating three-technique defensive tackle.

Minnesota could also look to address some secondary needs. If the best player on the board happens to be a wide receiver, the Vikings shouldn’t hesitate to pull the trigger. If they see a quarterback available who they believe holds the potential to be their signal-caller of the future, they could go that route as well.

While it is hard to predict in January which way Minnesota will go with their first choice of the 2021 draft, it may be easier to rule out positions they won’t be taking with that first pick.

The Vikings have plenty of holes on their depth chart, but there are a few positions where the team is set. Which positions can be ruled out for Minnesota with the No. 14 pick?
