Time to focus in on who the Vikings might be taking in the 2018 draft. These prospects are being recommended after taking into account team needs and drafting trends from the past. For example, the Vikings don’t need a top-five quarterback, so obviously Josh Rosen is not a target. On the other hand, the Vikings are very much in need of a third running back, who they will likely find in the middle rounds.
