The Minnesota Vikings will enter May’s draft with some clear positions of need to address, both in terms of finding players that can contribute immediately and bolstering depth at some other positions.
Here are five prospects the Vikings need to have on their radar during Day 3 (Rounds 4-7) of this year’s NFL Draft.
Bromley was a three-year starter career at Syracuse, and had his best season as a senior (nine sacks, 13.5 tackles for loss). He would add upside, and more importantly depth, to the Vikings’ defensive tackle rotation.
If the Vikings wind up drafting two quarterbacks, Wenning’s experience as a four-year starter and his high level of production as a senior (4,148 passing yards with 35 touchdowns and seven interceptions) would be hard to ignore on Day 3.
Tight end is not an urgent need for the Vikings with Kyle Rudolph in place as the starter, but Blanchflower would upgrade their depth at the position if he can shake off the injury issues that plagued his final two collegiate seasons.
Lattimore was a productive tackler (337 total tackles, 32.5 tackles for loss) and pass rusher (15 sacks) during his collegiate career. His all-around attributes would fit well in a Vikings’ linebacking corp that needs more talent.
Vikings’ fans will be familiar with Vereen since he played at the University of Minnesota, but he has looked very good through the pre-draft process and his experience playing corner and safety as a Golden Gopher should appeal to the Vikings.
