- Cornerback: With the injury to, Cedric Griffin tore his ACL in the NFC Championship. He won't be ready until at least late October, and takes some time to get back to form with an ACL injury. Using a first-round pick on a corner would be beneficial for the Vikes to address this issue
Free Safety: Madieu Williams has been a HUGE hole in the middle in the Vikes secondary.He is n ot getting the job done when he is out there. The 2010 NFL Draft is loaded with capable Round 2-5 safety prospects.
Right Guard: Anthony Herrera struggled to open up any sort of running lanes for Adrian Peterson. If Mike Iupati makes it past the Cowboys, the Vikings could take him in the 1st round.. Otherwise, they may locate an upgrade in Rounds 2-4 this April.
Center: John Sullivan was awful in his first year as a starter. Look for the Vikings to spend a second- or a third-round pick on an upgrade.
- Running Back: With AD backup in Chester Taylor going to the Bears to backup Matt Forte. I expect the Vikes to go for a running back in round 2-4 to address this need for a 3rd down back. The Vikes could also be confident that Albert Young and Ian Johnson are all the need to backup AD this season.
These are my top 5 positions the team need to address in the draft this year with a limited FA pool this year. The only route is the draft this season.
