The Minnesota Vikings are looking to upgrade their team in the 2022 NFL Draft, but there are also a handful of players they don’t want their division rivals to land.

The 2022 NFL Draft is just days away and the Minnesota Vikings are going over final preparations. They are definitely adjusting their rankings and getting the draft board finalized before the 28th. While they are ranking the prospects for how they fit with their team, they are also doing mock drafts to try and figure out who may be on the board when they go on the clock.

While they are doing those mocks, they are surely keeping track of what prospects could end up with teams in their own division. While anyone in the Vikings front office, coaching staff, or even the roster wouldn’t come out and outright say this, there are definitely some prospects they don’t want to see end up in the NFC North.

These could be dynamic playmakers who would be lethal combinations with Aaron Rodgers throwing them the ball. They could also be prospects who bring a rare skill set to the table and would definitely cause headaches for the Vikings to try to stop or even contain two times a year for at least the next five years.

Here is a list of five prospects that the Vikings and their fans shouldn’t want to see end up in the NFC North.
