Player No. 4
Jordan Hicks - ILB
Just as the Vikings did in the offseason with Eric Kendricks, it's time for them to evaluate their youth and move on from the elder statesman in the linebacker room.
Jordan Hicks is a fine player and a great person, but if Minnesota is looking to retool for the future, he isn't in the picture.
Ivan Pace Jr. looks like a star in the making, but it would make sense for the Vikings to assess their other young linebackers to see what they need to draft in 2024.
Brian Asamoah II is still young and incredibly raw, so it would also make sense for Minnesota to see what he has to offer as they look toward the future.
The Vikingd may be heading towards an assessment period throughout their roster to look ahead, and it may take dealing away Hicks to ease that process.
