When it comes time for the Minnesota Vikings to make their picks in the first five rounds of the 2022 NFL Draft, which prospects will they select?

Finally, the week of the 2022 NFL Draft is here. It won’t be long before Kwesi Adofo-Mensah makes his first-ever draft selection as the general manager of the Minnesota Vikings.

Fans of the Vikings will be watching closely this year as no one really knows what to expect from the team’s new leadership.

Will Minnesota take a similar approach to past drafts when Rick Spielman was the team’s general manager or will Adofo-Mensah use the draft to show just how differently the team’s front office operates now?

Currently, the Vikings have eight picks in the 2022 draft, with selections in every round except for the fourth (thanks to the awesome trade for Chris Herndon last year).

By now, most people have their favorite prospects that they would like to see drafted by Minnesota. But when it comes to who the Vikings select this year, which prospects are some of the more realistic options?
