Which veteran Minnesota Vikings players should be worried about their futures with the franchise after the team’s additions in the 2022 NFL Draft?

After much anticipation, the Minnesota Vikings completed their first NFL Draft without the help of Rick Spielman for the first time since 2005.

Despite Spielman no longer being with the organization, however, the Vikings still made plenty of Spielman-esque decisions during this year’s draft.

The six trades Minnesota made this past weekend would likely bring a tear to their former general manager’s eye and he would probably also appreciate that the Vikings’ new regime was able to add a total of 10 prospects during this year’s draft.

Even though Minnesota still exhibited some Spielman-like tendencies with some of their decisions in the 2022 draft, the team is likely going to part with a number of players before next season that the team’s former general manager helped acquire.

The Vikings are heading in a new direction with Kwesi Adofo-Mensah as their general manager and it’s not going to be hard for him to move on from players that were drafted by Spielman as early as 2021.

So with the 10 guys that Adofo-Mensah just added to the team in the 2022 draft, which veteran members of the Vikings are now in danger of not making the team’s final roster for the upcoming season?
