Heading into the 2020 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings have multiple holes that need to be addressed. This week on KFAN.com, there will be a series of draft prospects being highlighted before the draft starts on Thursday night.
Yes, another cornerback makes his way on to this list. The Vikings have several holes but haven’t lost as many pieces elsewhere as they did within the secondary. It would be shocking to see the Vikings come out of the first two rounds without at least one cornerback, especially with Mike Zimmer’s draft history.
Former Utah cornerback Jaylon Johnson is another prospect to keep an eye on within the first two rounds of the draft. He isn’t the fastest corner in this year's class by any means, but he makes up for it with his physical playstyle.
Johnson is at his best when he is manned up with the receiver across from him. He has the length that allows him to go up and attack the football at its highest point and also brings the physicality in the run game.
Although he’s not the most athletic corner, Johnson seems as if he’d be a fit for Zimmer’s coaching style. There are certainly better cornerbacks in this draft class, but Johnson has the ability to be a starter at the next level.
Stay tuned for more draft profiles coming throughout this week on KFAN.com. The profiles will be addressing positions of need for the Vikings, and there will also be reaction pieces available after each day of the draft.
