The 2022 NFL Draft is just hours away. Who are six prospects who are getting some late buzz when it comes to the Minnesota Vikings?

For the Minnesota Vikings and the rest of the league, the NFL Draft is finally here. All of the guessing of where these players will come off the board and which teams will take them will be revealed. It’s an exciting time of the year and it’s a great chance for teams to improve their rosters with young talent that won’t break the bank.

The Vikings have had a very solid offseason so far, and need to fill a few more holes to really complete this roster and make a run for the NFC North crown.

This will be Minnesota general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah‘s first-ever draft calling the shots, so how he approaches things will be very interesting to see.

The Vikings have been linked to a handful of prospects since the draft season began back in January. Perhaps they were seen interviewing these players back at the Senior Bowl or Combine, or maybe they were at their Pro Days. Minnesota also had 30 prospects in for visits; picking their brains, and putting them through workouts.

Here is a list of six prospects who have been generating some late buzz when it comes to the Vikings. Perhaps a few of these players actually end up in purple, but it’s possible a lot of this could just end up being smoke screens. We will find out very soon.
