The Minnesota Vikings hold the 12th overall pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. They’ll be hoping one of these prospects falls to them when they are on the clock.

The NFL Draft is just a few weeks away. NFL Free Agency has all but come to a lull, and most teams used that to fill at least a few holes on their rosters. The Minnesota Vikings haven’t sat back on their laurels. They have brought in quite a few players to help out on both sides of the ball, and now their draft needs have become a bit more defined.

The Vikings and their fans who follow the draft process have a pretty solid idea of which prospects will be available when they go on the clock at pick No. 12.

We see all the mocks that have players like Derek Stingley Jr., Jordan Davis, and Trent McDuffie being popular selections for our beloved purple. While any of those three would be solid additions to the Vikings roster, this is the NFL Draft,  and anything can and will happen.

We see it just about every single year. A player who was expected to go in the top five begins to slide down the board and ends up going much later than anticipated. So the Vikings need to be ready in case that happens to them this year. Here are four prospects who could fall to the Vikings at pick No. 12.
