PFF grades of Vikings 2023 NFL draft class

The Minnesota Vikings selected six players in the 2023 NFL draft and we are continuing to learn more about them.

Earlier this week, we released in-depth film pieces on both wide receiver Jordan Addison and quarterback Jaren Hall with more to come over the next few weeks.

One thing we can utilize to learn more about the Vikings draft class is by looking at the PFF grades from their time in college. It’s not the end all, be all, but it gives you a good baseline at what they were good at while in college.
