The Minnesota Vikings have a few starters who could be pushed by a rookie to the point they lose their job before the 2023 season.

The Minnesota Vikings brought in a handful of players in the 2023 NFL Draft. After the draft concluded, they found about a dozen more who weren't selected and added them to their roster.

There's a good chance the Vikings will utilize many of these young players early in the season. They have holes all over the roster, and these talented young players will be asked to step onto the field and contribute right away in sub packages, blitz situations, and on special teams.

While most rookies will be used sparingly, there are a few who could see much larger roles. In fact, there are some who could push some veterans for their starting jobs.

These young Minnesota players may not overtake the position by the start of the season, but at some point, they could become the starter over the respective veteran simply because they become the better option.

Here are four Vikings veterans who could lose their starting job to rookies this year.
