The 2024 Senior Bowl is in the books and the Minnesota Vikings should feel pretty good about the upcoming NFL Draft following the week in Mobile.

The Minnesota Vikings officially kicked off the pre-draft festivities with the 2024 Senior Bowl signaling the start of the offseason preparation period. While the scouting has taken place for months already, the Senior Bowl - and the rest of the All-Star circuit - is the true start of the fun.

Vikings executives and coaches attended practices in Mobile to get a closer look at some of the biggest names in the upcoming NFL Draft.

The headliners were the quarterbacks, once again, as Michael Penix Jr. and Bo Nix competed in practice and worked with NFL coaches for the first time.

There were also a ton of exciting playmakers on the field this year, and a lot of those guys proved themselves to be top-50 prospects.

If Minnesota is going to take anything away from this week, it should be not to panic. This draft class is very good on both sides of the ball, and they will find contributors throughout the draft.

This was the first close-up look at these players of the season, and there are still a few weeks before prospects meet again for the NFL Scouting Combine.

What did we learn from this class from the Senior Bowl, and what should the Vikings expect when they get to the next stage of the draft process?
