The Minnesota Vikings made headlines on Monday when they chose to trade Stefon Diggs to the Buffalo Bills. Within the confines of the trade, the Vikings were able to land Buffalo’s No. 22 pick in this year’s draft.

When watching Minnesota in 2019, the writing was on the wall for Diggs to make an exit from the Vikings. At the least, the Vikings were able to acquire more for Diggs than the Houston Texans received in the blockbuster trade involving DeAndre Hopkins.

After trading Diggs to Buffalo, the Vikings now possess the No. 22 and No. 25 picks in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Considering they just sent Diggs up North, Minnesota could look to find his replacement in the draft.

On the other hand, Minnesota has a glaring need at cornerback this offseason. All that being said, here are three targets for the Vikings with the No. 22 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.
