The 2024 Senior Bowl is here, and the Minnesota Vikings should be keeping close tabs on a number of talented participants.

One of the biggest steps on the road to the 2024 NFL Draft is already underway in Mobile, Alabama. The Senior Bowl is here. This is one of the first chances for the Minnesota Vikings and other NFL teams to get an up close and personal look at the rookie class that'll be entering the league later this year.

The Vikings will have plenty of scouts, coaches, and their general manager in attendance to see how these prospects look in one one-on-one, positional, and team drills.

There's a lot of talent at the Senior Bowl this year, with plenty of players who are considered first-round prospects.

The Vikings are in the hunt for a quarterback of the future and have a plethora of needs on the defensive side of the football. It's expected they'll be watching those positions especially closely.

The practices hold more weight than the game itself, and there are already quite a few players who are generating positive buzz with their performances.

Minnesota has a few members of their defensive staff coaching in this game, so they'll be getting a close look at some players who can improve that side of the ball.

Let's go over, first, three offensive prospects, and then, three defensive prospects Minnesota should pay close attention to at this year's Senior Bowl.
