Knowing what they know now after the regular season, which players would the Minnesota Vikings select with their picks in the 2023 NFL Draft?

The Minnesota Vikings 2023 season is over. Now it's time to look forward to the offseason and project how the team may get better through free agency and the NFL Draft.

Before we put all our chips into that arena, we also need to look back.

Draft grades are already done, but now we can go to fantasy land and see how the Vikings 2023 draft class could've looked had they known ahead of time how these players would pan out in year one.

Doing a redraft is more fun than anything, and it doesn't mean we are giving up on the players Minnesota selected.

Some rookies just pick up the NFL game quicker, or maybe there were just more opportunities for them to perform with the team that selected them.

That being said, if the Vikings landed all these players that are mentioned below, perhaps they would still be playing meaningful ball.

There are a couple of rules that we must follow when doing this redraft, and the first is the player selected must have been available when the team made their original selection. It could be two rounds later when he was drafted, but he must've been on the board.

The other rule is that the player had to be drafted, so undrafted gems like Ivan Pace Jr. won't be considered here.

The Vikings had a very good 2023 class, so perhaps some of these picks won't even change, but let's get into Minnesota's 2023 NFL Re-Draft.
