The Minnesota Vikings have all the right players on paper to push for an NFC North title, they just cannot put it together on the field.\nCan they draft well enough to improve on 2019?\nPlayers Drafted\n\n\n\nPlayers\nPick\nPosition\nSchool\n\n\nGarrett Bradbury\n18\nC\nNC State\n\n\nIrv Smith\n50\nTE\nAlabama\n\n\nAlexander Mattison\n102\nRB\nBoise State\n\n\nDru Samia\n114\nOG\nOklahoma\n\n\nCameron Smith\n162\nLB\nUSC\n\n\nArmon Watts\n190\nDT\nArkansas\n\n\nMarcus Epps\n191\nS\nWyoming\n\n\nOli Udoh\n193\nOT\nElon\n\n\nKris Boyd\n217\nCB\nTexas\n\n\nDillion Mitchell\n239\nWR\nOregon\n\n\nOlabisi Johnson\n247\nWR\nColorado State\n\n\nAustin Cutting\n250\nLS\nAir Force\n\n\n\nNotable UDFA\n\n\n\nPlayer\nPos.\nSchool\n\n\nDavion Davis\nWR\nSam Houston State\n\n\nJake Browning\nQB\nVikings\n\n\nKris Boyd\nCB\nTexas\n\n\nMicah Prince Abernathy\nCB\nTennessee\n\n\nJohn Keenoy\nOL\nWestern Michigan\n\n\n\nTEAM 2019 Outlook\nOffense\nThe Vikings used their first four draft picks to add players on the offensive side of the ball and what a great group they picked.\n\nNC State Centre Garrett Bradbury is easily the best Centre in college football. Bradbury is an exceptional talent with great size and presence at the line. He plays with leverage, great positioning, and excellent foot speed. He knows how to hold up an opponent or push him away and move on to the next defender. He has great lateral movement and is light on his feet for a big man.\n\nThe acquisition of Alabama TE Irv Smith was a master class. He will be the replacement for Kyle Rudolph, should they choose to not extend his contract beyond the 2019 season. Smith possesses solid speed, smooth route runner and has incredible vision to find the ball in the air. He has experience with a diverse rushing attack. He is a strong blocker and uses his hands well to create leverage.\n\nThe unpredictable-ness of RB Dalvin Cook, 15 games in two seasons, prompted the Vikings to draft Boise State RB Alexander Mattison with the 102nd overall pick. He ran 302 times for 1415 yards and 17 touchdowns in his final college season. Some of the cutbacks and change of direction you see on tape are incredible and prove he is ready for the big time. He is used to a heavy workload, has functional speed and a great turn of pace. Mattison is the perfect player to sit behind Cook. He will make an immediate impact when he gets going for the Vikings.\n\nWith the 114th pick, the Vikings took Oklahoma OG Dru Samia. Despite being a little undersized for the position, Samia plays with heart and determination that you don\u2019t find in everyone. Explosive yet controlled off the line. Knows how to read the play well and can find leverage against almost any player. Likes to get low and drive, which helps to block players larger than he is. Good timing on snaps. Gains great positioning with hands. Doesn\u2019t get overpowered very often, spends a lot of time on his feet.\n\nLikewise, the drafting OT Oli Udoh from Elon. He won\u2019t make an immediate impact but is a solid player to have on the RT depth chart.\nDefense\nMost of players drafted and UDFAs signed will be added to the depth chart on defense. None stand out as players to make an impact in 2019.\n\nArmon Watts DT Arkansas is one player who could get a chance to impress in 2019, but most of these guys will be place holders for now.\nGrade -\u00a0A\nThe Vikings have done enough on the offensive side of the ball to make a real play for the NFC North title in 2019. This is going to be one of the most hotly contested divisions in the NFL.
