Minnesota has a strong roster for 2021, but there are some places where the team is thin.
Of course, the Vikings are hurt by any player going down with an injury, but there are some who could affect the team’s playoff chances more than others.
The Vikings interior defensive line will not be featured on this list. Mostly because losing Dalvin Tomlinson, Michael Pierce or Sheldon Richardson isn’t too dire, because the other healthy players can fill in.
Same goes for cornerback. Minnesota has four potential starting-caliber cornerbacks in Cameron Dantzler, Patrick Peterson, Bashaud Breeland and Mackensie Alexander. It helps to have depth.
Just a note: this list is in no specific order.
