The 2021 NFL Draft is ten weeks away, and the Minnesota Vikings will choose a player unusually high in this year’s edition. Minnesota was beset by a down season in 2020 — one plagued by injuries, a nonexistent homefield advantage, dastardly special teams, and a shell corporation defense.
About three pimples are noticeable on the roster – offensive line, defensive line, and free safety. If the Vikings retain left tackle Riley Reiff, general manager Rick Spielman will need one guard on the offensive line to trot into 2021 with some optimism. The defensive line needs either a ferocious, pass-rushing defensive tackle or a likeminded defensive end opposite Danielle Hunter.
