It's that time of year again. The time to scout NFL prospects.
The Minnesota Vikings have their fair share of needs. After wide receiver it's pretty muddled as to what the order should be, relative to the franchise's needs.
In no particular order, defensive tackle, offensive guard, outside linebacker and middle linebacker are their top-five needs.
This slideshow will scout eight prospects Minnesota could realistically draft with its first-round pick (No. 23 overall), and who all play positions that fit within Minnesota's needs.
There isn't an outside linebacker on this list, but that's because there doesn't appear to be one worth taking at No. 23.
Three wide receivers, two middle linebackers, two defensive tackles and an offensive guard compose this slideshow.
