Well, not at this exact moment — but very soon.
Teams around the National Football League are scheduling their final handful of meetings and workouts with prospects, as the draft is just a mere three weeks away. The opportunity every team and NFL fans have been waiting for — the chance to fill in glaring roster holes with eager young talent.
The Minnesota Vikings are no different in that they are likely not only as excited about the upcoming draft as fans are, but they also possess multiple roster holes that, if adequately filled in, could take this team to new heights. It is no secret that Minnesota will enter the draft with a rather notable offensive line issue — despite the team’s signings of offensive tackles Riley Reiff and Mike Remmers.
Starting defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd’s career-threatening nerve issue has also caused a buzz within Vikings circles, as 3-technique quickly becomes a question mark if, in fact, Floyd’s career is over. Both Minnesota’s interior offensive line and defensive tackle groups will likely receive an upgrade at some point, but another glaring concern on defense remains — linebacker.
