Vikings Draft 2021: Three-round all offense mock draft
By Adam Carlson
What would the 2021 NFL Draft look like if the Minnesota Vikings only made offensive selections during the first three rounds of the 2021 NFL Draft?
The Minnesota Vikings had a pretty great offense during the 2020 NFL season. While the squad was pouring points onto their opponents, the defense struggled to stop the opposition. That polarizing situation resulted in the purple and gold failing to reach the postseason.
The Vikings second in yards per pass attempt at 8.3, tied for second in first down percentage at 41.1, fifth in rushing yards with 2283, and fourth in yards per carry at 4.9. and tied for sixth in rushing touchdowns with 20.
While those numbers are excellent, there is still room for improvement. Seeing Adam Thielen, Justin Jefferson, Kirk Cousins, Dalvin Cook, and others moving the ball is a lot of fun, but a few more pieces could make the team even more dangerous on gameday.
Let’s take a look at what could happen if the Vikings throw caution to the wind and decide to only choose offensive players during the first three rounds of the 2021 NFL Draft. Who needs defense anyway, right?
