The Vikings' 2011 roster was more top-heavy than Christina Hendricks. Superstars Adrian Peterson, Percy Harvin and Jared Allen comprised one of the best trios in the league, but due to insufficient support, the team sagged to a 3-13 record. To make matters worse, the Vikings will enter 2012 with one third of said trifecta in question.
It will be a long road back to respectability, but through the draft, and to a lesser extent, free agency, the Vikings have begun to fortify the back end of their roster. Coupled with a last-place schedule, it's not unreasonable to expect another two to four wins in 2012.
Where the meaningful contributions will come from is still about as clear as Jerome Simpson's eyes, but in the coming slides, I'll take my best shot at predicting the top 25 performers of 2012.
