After a disappointing 7-9 record, the Minnesota Vikings landed the 14th overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Minnesota entered the draft with a total of 10 picks, six of which fall between rounds three and four. With significant draft capital and no second-round pick, the Vikings are in a strong position to trade back in the first round. After a busy free agency period, the Vikings enter the 2021 NFL Draft with significant needs on both the offensive and defensive lines. The Vikings had one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL last season and one of the worst pass rushes defensively. While Minnesota returns Michael Pierce at defensive tackle, Danielle Hunter at end, and signed tackle Davlin Tomlinson, the Vikings do not have a set counterpart opposite Hunter.
