The 2019 NFL season is officially over, having come to an end after the Kansas City Chiefs toppled the San Francisco 49ers 31-20 in Super Bowl 54 in Miami.

Now every team in the league can start to turn the calendar as a new year in the NFL will quickly begin, with it already starting for most.

Most teams in the league are already turning their attention to one of the biggest events of the year – the NFL Draft.

This year the NFL Draft will take place in Paradise, Nevada and will be held on Thursday April 23rd to Saturday April 25th.

Two networks take over the event, with both ESPN and the NFL Network in charge of the coverage.

The Vikings are looking up at well over the half of the teams in the league before they pick, as Minnesota will draft 25th overall after going 10-6 and making it to the NFC Divisional Round before losing to the eventual NFC Champion San Francisco 49ers.

So what do the experts say about the Vikings in terms of who they will take in the 2020 NFL Draft?

ESPN says that it wouldn’t be a surprise to see the team take a cornerback, as the team will have two of their corners entering free agency – Trae Waynes and Mackensie Alexander.

Popular draft site Walter Football has weighed in with their latest NFL Draft, and they have the Vikings taking Texas A&M defensive tackle Justin Madubuike.

Here’s what the site has to say about the pick of Madubuike:

Linval Joseph is still a dominant presence in the interior, but he’ll turn 32 next season. He’ll decline soon, and the Vikings could use some help next to him in the meantime.

Justin Madubuike was a disruptive force in the interior of the Aggies’ defensive line this past season, logging 11.5 TFLs and 5.5 sacks.

So much can happen between now and the draft, but keep in mind that it sounds like the Vikings are going to look defensive when it comes to round one.
