Defensive Line (5)

  • Harrison Phillips
  • Dean Lowry
  • Khyiris Tonga
  • Jonathan Bullard
  • Jaquelin Roy (R)

With Harrison Phillips and Dean Lowry leading the way, Minnesota's defensive line is one of the most experienced position groups on their roster this year.

Speaking of experience, the Vikings decide to keep Jonathan Bullard around for that exact reason, and Minnesota keeps Jaquelin Roy on the final roster to prevent him from getting snagged by another team if they were to put him on the practice squad.

Outside Linebackers (5)

  • Danielle Hunter
  • Marcus Davenport
  • Pat Jones II
  • D.J. Wonnum
  • Andre Carter II (R)

Despite Pat Jones II and D.J. Wonnum being included here, don't be surprised if one of them is let go or traded before the regular season. The Vikings have a bunch of young pass rushers on their roster, and in order to get them some snaps, they might need to move on from a veteran like Jones or Wonnum.
