It's truly never too early for a mock draft and the 2024 NFL Draft could very well be extremely important for the future of the Minnesota Vikings.

The Minnesota Vikings recently added six new draft picks to their roster during the 2023 NFL Draft. The hope, like all other NFL franchises, is that these bright new draft picks are able to contribute fairly quickly.

A number of factors could change the current landscape of the 2024 draft for the Vikings. Players could be traded for more capital, or Minnesota could trade current and future capital for another impact player like T.J. Hockenson last season.

Currently, the Vikings hold six picks in the 2024 draft; a first, second, two fourths, a fifth, and a sixth. In this mock draft, we will cover four out of the six draft picks.

There are questions surrounding what Minnesota should do with impending free-agent quarterback Kirk Cousins, and there certainly will be questions regarding the defense.

So let's take a swing at this early 2024 four-round mock draft.
