After the 2021 NFL Draft, there are still a few holes left for the Minnesota Vikings on their roster.

The 2021 NFL Draft is in the books and the Minnesota Vikings did a great job filling their remaining needs. They were able to fortify their offensive line with first-round pick Christian Darrisaw, who’ll be the team’s future left tackle, and they also got Wyatt Davis in the third round, who could potentially earn a starting job at one of the guard spots.

The Vikings also got a player who should flesh out their safety depth chart in Camryn Bynum and they found a backup quarterback in Kellen Mond.

Minnesota also bolstered their depth at defensive end with Patrick Jones II and Janarius Robinson in addition to using a fifth-round selection on a receiver who could end up as their slot guy in Ihmir Smith-Marsette.

While the Vikings did a great job of hitting some of their biggest holes, there are still some areas on the team that could use a little help. These aren’t glaring needs right now, but they could become bigger issues and primary needs in 2022.

So what are some of Minnesota’s biggest needs following the results of the 2021 NFL Draft?
