Minnesota found good value throughout the 2021 NFL draft. That said, the Vikings still have some possible openings for next season.

For one, the team did not take a defensive end until the third round. Minnesota needs a starter opposite DEvDanielle Hunter. The team also did not take a wideout until the fifth round, despite having a need at wide receiver three.

Josina Anderson reported that the Vikings are at least in the market for a third wide receiver. Minnesota and Cincinnati have been in preliminary conversations with Dede Westbrook, a wideout who has played all four of his NFL seasons with the Jaguars. Westbrook also played under then-Jaguars wide receivers coach Keenan McCardell, now with the Vikings in that role.

I think Westbrook could be a great option for Minnesota. The team could use a more explosive player at wide receiver three, and Westbrook definitely has play-making potential. We will update you if anything happens.
