What are some things the Minnesota Vikings need to figure out prior to the 2021 NFL Draft.?

The Minnesota Vikings are in full offseason mode. They’ve already hired a few new coaches and they have scouted a number of draft prospects at the 2021 Senior Bowl. The Vikings should definitely know by now what needs they have to address this year and where the biggest holes on this roster lie.

Free agency is just over a month away and after that, the 2021 NFL Draft follows. Minnesota currently holds the 14th overall pick and they could look to bolster either their offensive or defensive line with that choice.

But before the draft hits, and even before free agency kicks off, the Vikings have some questions they need to answer. These decisions will be key in narrowing down which way Minnesota will ultimately go with the No. 14 choice in addition to what positions they’ll target in free agency and later on in the draft.

The Vikings really aren’t that far away from competing with the tops teams again and they need to get a clear plan in place to ensure they make the necessary moves to get back to being contenders in 2021. So what are some of the questions Minnesota must answer in the coming weeks?
