Minnesota Vikings Needs, Pre-Draft Analysis: NFL Draft 2022

Defensive back, defensive back, defensive back. The Viking offense should be solid, but the D needs more playmakers, especially in the secondary. They should have a good one slide on down to the 12, but don’t assume that it’s a done deal. There will be defensive backs at the 46 in the second round, too.

It’s a three player draft with the last pick the 77 in the third round. It would be nice to try packaging some of the three sixth-rounders and the fifth rounder to try moving up to get a fourth.

The Vikings need to nail this draft. It’s still early, but the call of Kellen Mond over Davis Mills in the third round as a possible future quarterback isn’t looking great. There have been way, way, way too many misfires over the last several years.

So who’ll be there in the first round for Minnesota? Again, it’s a sweet spot for the corners at 12. Washington’s Trent McDuffie would be a great fit, it would be wonderful if LSU’s Derek Stingley Jr. slid down a bit, and it wouldn’t be crazy to go with Notre Dame safety Kyle Hamilton if he fell that far.
