The Minnesota Vikings will embark on a busy week as the 2020 NFL Draft kicks off on Thursday. Round 1 is Thursday night followed by the second and third rounds on Friday, then rounds 4-7 on Saturday afternoon.
This year's draft will be different with the NFL going fully virtual due to the COVID-19 crisi, but it should still be intriguing for the Vikings thanks to 12 total selections – the second-highest number in the NFL behind Miami (14).
With so much draft capital, the Vikings will be one of a select few that will be able to control the draft via trades. To help prepare for those trade winds, we listed all of the Vikings' picks along with former Dallas Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson's trade value chart, which many GMs still use today.
While many will focus on the Vikings' first-round selections at No. 22 and No. 25 overall, here's a complete list of where the Vikings will be drafting this week.
Vikings 2020 picks and value (points)
- Round 1, Pick No. 22 (from Buffalo): 780 points
- Round 1, Pick No. 25: 720 points
- Round 2, Pick No. 58: 320 points
- Round 3, Pick No. 89: 145 points
- Round 3, Pick No. 105 (Compensatory): 84 points
- Round 4, Pick No. 132: 40 points
- Round 5, Pick No. 155 (from Buffalo): 28.2 points
- Round 6, Pick No. 201: 9.8 points
- Round 6, Pick No. 205: 8.2 points
- Round 7, Pick No. 219 (from Miami): 2.6 points
- Round 7, Pick No. 249 (Compensatory): 1 point
- Round 7, Pick No. 253 (Compensatory): 1 point
The value chart is a fun tool to play around with. For example, let's say the 49ers want to trade down from No. 13. The 13th pick is worth 1,150 points, so it would take one of Minnesota's first-round picks, valued at 780 and 720 points, respectively, plus a combination of picks in later rounds to equal the value of the 13th pick.
