What positions might the Minnesota Vikings “double-dip” at in this year’s NFL Draft?

The Minnesota Vikings have been pretty active in free agency this year as they created room by cutting and restructuring current members of the team. They then spent some of that money on quality players.

Most of the Vikings‘ additions have come on the defensive side of the ball as Mike Zimmer was obviously embarrassed by the unit’s performance last year. They upgraded at cornerback and at defensive tackle in addition to also bringing in a safety who will likely start next to Harrison Smith and a linebacker who improves the depth.

While Minnesota’s defense was adequately upgraded, the same thing can’t be said for the offense. The team brought back below-average players in every area of need and cut their best blocker from a season ago.

The Vikings’ moves have created some pretty big holes on the offensive side of the ball and there are still some areas on defense that need more talent from top to bottom.

Minnesota has 10 picks in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft and they have a handful of positions they could look to upgrade more than once. What are some of these need areas that the Vikings will more than likely “double-dip” at by taking multiple players from these position groups?
