Minnesota Vikings 2020 NFL Draft Recap

The 2020 NFL Draft is in the books. Every team made at least four selections over the course of three days with one team taking 15 players.

The Minnesota Vikings selected 15 total players. Below we will look at who their best pick was, their best value selection, biggest reach, and one impact undrafted free agent.

I will look at their Total Pick Value Rank. This will be the sum of each player selected by the team based on the value I assigned to the player pre-draft. I will also look at the total value accumulated in the first 200 selections. Generally, anything after that is a team grabbing fringe players that they don’t want to compete to sign on the open market. We will also look at their total average pick value.

All values are based on my board. The ranking is based on 1-32 for the number of teams in the NFL.
