Minnesota Vikings Depth Chart

Minnesota Vikings Depth Chart

How the Vikings could line up for the 2022 season.

The Minnesota Vikings are changing things up. After seven seasons under defensive-minded head coach Mike Zimmer, the team is turning the reigns over to Kevin O'Connell, the former offensive coordinator for the Los Angeles Rams. There's also a new-school general manager (Kwesi Adofo-Mensah) leading the front office. Quarterback Kirk Cousins and O'Connell have worked together before, so perhaps this reunion will bring out the best in Cousins, who has put up plenty of numbers but just seems to consistently come up short in games or moments when it matters the most. He has plenty of weapons to work with, but there are questions along the offensive line. The defense is a work in progress, not only having to shift from Zimmer's approach and scheme (from a 4-3 to a 3-4) to that of new coordinator Ed Donatell but coming off of back-to-back seasons of surrendering 400-plus points. Even with a new staff and so many new faces, Minnesota should be able to put together enough wins to fight for one of the wild-card berths.
