Minnesota Vikings 2022 NFL Mock Draft Roundup 2.0

Throughout the year and leading up to the 2022 NFL Draft, we will update our Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft Roundup showing picks for the Minnesota Vikings from several prominent sites and draft analysts.

The following are picks in recent mock drafts for the Vikings:

CBS Sports - Edwards (11/25)

20. Drake Jackson, EDGE, USC

The Everson Griffen situation is heartbreaking but it only magnified Minnesota's immediate need at edge rusher. Drake Jackson is the best prospect at the position on the board.

NBC Sports Chicago - Morgan (11/24)

20. Trent McDuffie, CB, Washington

McDuffie is a patient cornerback who avoids panicking in coverage, displaying unflappable confidence and an elite awareness on the gridiron. He is adept in man or zone schemes and supports the run better than most cornerbacks. A versatile athlete, he consistently demonstrates adequate NFL range when dropping into coverage downfield. Minnesota experiences some lapses in coverage and if they acquire a talent like McDuffie, those miscues should lessen and increase accountability within the defensive secondary.

Below you will find a Week 18 roundup for the Vikings in our consensus 2021 NFL Power Rankings.

ESPN -- Rank: 22

New Year's resolution: A clean start

The Vikings have not been above .500 in more than 700 days. They tried to do a soft rebuild approach, and it didn't work. They tried to retool their defense to bring back the glory days of the 2017 season and couldn't. Mike Zimmer brought this team to the playoffs three times in eight seasons, general manager Rick Spielman brought in draft picks like Brian O'Neill and Justin Jefferson, and quarterback Kirk Cousins had one of the best years of his career in 2021. But it's time to start over and move this franchise in a different direction with fresh ideas, new leadership and changes across the board in 2022. -- Courtney Cronin

NFL.com -- Rank: 21

This Vikings season was fun … until it wasn't. The playoff-eligible portion of the schedule ended with a blowout loss to -- who else? -- the Packers, who had no problem clinching the NFC's No. 1 seed in a game Kirk Cousins watched from home after landing on the COVID-19 list at the most inopportune time. Cousins' four seasons in Minnesota have been defined by very good individual production … and very average team results. Cousins is under contract for one more season, making him an intriguing trade chip if the Vikings decide to explore that road (and a team is willing to take on his hefty cap number).
