What are the most concerning position groups for the Minnesota Vikings as Week 1 against the Cincinnati Bengals approaches?

During the last two weeks, the Minnesota Vikings made the necessary cuts and then re-signed a bunch of players, shuffled the roster a bit more, and finally ended up at the required 53 guys on their active roster.

The Vikings are definitely stacked in certain positions. They have great depth at running back, cornerback, and on the defensive line. Minnesota appears to have a roster that can compete with just about any team in the NFL, and they definitely have playoff aspirations.

While the Vikings have plenty of deep areas on their roster, there are also a few spots on the roster that are a little on the thin side. Some of these are because of players who are injured or are recovering from injuries, and others are just because the team opted to go with some young and inexperienced players.

Minnesota starts the 2021 season this Sunday on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals. So what are the five most concerning positions on the roster as they approach that contest?
