Post Draft Thoughts:

“The Vikings moved up to get some talent that they targeted, and believe they may have stabilized some problems that they had last year. Cook was arguably the best RB in the draft, and getting him at 41 is quite a value. He is going to catch a lot of passes this year. Elflein provides them with the center of the future, and can play guard as well. Isidora was viewed as one of the safer offensive line prospects, and could fight his way into the starting lineup.”

2018 NFL Draft

The Vikings really struck gold with additions to the offensive line that weren’t necessarily coming off of stellar seasons with their previous teams. Doubts have been cast aside, as the offensive line has formed into a unit that has provided protection for the QB as well as has created lanes for whomever is running the ball. The line has played well, but they have also been lucky to not have had test the lack of depth of talent, and should start developing some young offensive line talent through the draft.

The defense, particularly the secondary is the strength of the Vikings team at this point, but the interior of the defensive line is aging. With quality players all around, getting that interior pass rush could take this defensive to even greater heights.

One major question surrounding Minnesota is who is going to be the quarterback next year. They have a pending free agent starter that they traded a top pick for, a budding star, albeit unproven, coming off a gruesome injury, and a designated backup QB that has performed admirably in reserve duty.
