Last year, the Minnesota Vikings had some obvious areas of need, but thankfully they have been addressed.

The Minnesota Vikings recently freed up some additional salary cap space following the extension they gave to future Hall-of-Famer, safety Harrison Smith.

With this extra cash, the Vikings could continue to add pieces should they feel the need to strengthen in certain positions.

During the last few months, Minnesota has spent a lot of resources trying to recreate an elite defense that could be comparable to that of 2017.

Coupling that with a well-balanced offense, which finished fourth in the league in total yards and seventh in total touchdowns last season, the Vikings look to be a force in a very close NFC this year.

Some areas of Minnesota’s roster were made stronger this offseason as a result of players coming back from injury and others were improved by the acquisitions in free agency and the draft.

What are a few positions that the Vikings should feel very strongly about going into the new season that may have been a concern last year?
