2024 NFL Scouting Combine: Tracking meetings with Vikings

As we get closer to the 2024 NFL Draft, these prospects hoping to hear their names called on draft day will be analyzed from head to toe. Physically, everything from their strength at the point of attack to their speed off the snap will be dissected like a frog in a high school science class.

However, what’s just as, if not more, important is the mindset and the mentality of these prospects. Figuring out what made these guys decide to dedicate their lives to playing the game of football for a living.

During the pre-draft process, front offices are given the opportunity to interview prospects and find the answer to these questions and others before they take to the field this weekend.

We devised this interview tracker so that fans can get as deep of a look as possible about who the Vikings could be interested in going into the draft.
