A potential edge prospect for the Vikings to draft in each round

Even with Danielle Hunter presumably returning for the Vikings in 2021, the team has a need for defensive ends.

Minnesota’s pass rush was very inconsistent this past season. Hunter fixes some problems, but not all of them — so the Vikings will likely have to add defensive ends this offseason.

One of the ways the team can do that is through the NFL draft. Here is a defensive end that the Vikings could draft in each round. Just a note: Minnesota does not have a second-round pick, but I still have a second-round defensive end option in there, in case the team ends up acquiring a pick in that round.
