Which current players might the Minnesota Vikings attempt to acquire during the upcoming NFL Draft?

Whether Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman makes a trade during the NFL Draft each year or not is no longer a question worth wasting any time thinking about. It’s just going to happen during every draft.

If there’s a trade possibility in the draft, Spielman is likely going to call about it. His methods are typically geared around acquiring more draft selections for the Vikings. But with Minnesota struggling last season in part because of the youth on their roster, the team’s longtime general manager might be more interested than ever in trading for an established veteran during this year’s draft.

There are a few notable names that could be available when the 2021 draft begins next week and some of them could help the Vikings get back to the playoffs next season.

So who are some of these current NFL players that Minnesota might try to land in a trade during this year’s draft?
