We won’t really know who will win the 2021 NFL Draft until probably 2026 or so, but it’s fun to see who experts think won immediately after based on value and pre-draft evaluations.

Chad Reuter over at NFL.com put together his draft grades and the Vikings couldn’t have done much better, earning an A grade.

Here’s what Reuter wrote about the Vikings:

The Vikings addressed their need at left tackle (Darrisaw) and picked up two third-rounders (while giving up a fourth) in a savvy first-round trade with the Jets. Mond provides much-needed depth behind (and competition for?) Kirk Cousins. Minnesota did well with their other three third-round picks: Surratt serves as a fine replacement for Eric Wilson; Davis is a sturdy guard the team hopes steadies the O-line; Jones provides strength off the edge.

The biggest concern for the Vikings was the offensive line, and they did a great job doing so. They also answered fans’ prayers in maybe getting the quarterback of the future.

To round out the NFC North, the Bears received an A grade, the Lions received a B+ and the Packers received an A.
