The Minnesota Vikings 2022 NFL Draft class is looking like an all-time bust. Is there any way that it can be salvaged, or is it already a lost hope?

The Minnesota Vikings 2022 NFL Draft class has been extremely disappointing through its first two seasons.

This was Kwesi Adofo-Mensah's first class as the general manager of the Vikings, and he's gotten very little return from it.

This class of Minnesota draft picks has been evaluated many times, and most of those evaluations and grades are chock full of criticisms, with the word "bust" commonly thrown around.

The truth is, the criticism is valid. This class has produced one full-time starter and another starter who was demoted during the 2023 season. That's it.

The rest have either failed to see the field, seen it sparingly, or are with another team. This class is on a collision course with being a complete failure, but the question is, can it be salvaged?

If there is any hope for this class of Vikings draft picks, certain players will need to step up to make that happen, and some opportunities will need to arise for others to get a shot.

We will take a look at the good of this class so far, the bad, and the ugly. We will then decide if it can be saved or not.
