As part of the rebuilding process, general manager Rick Spielman wisely put the brakes on costly free-agent signings. The Vikings hope tight end John Carlson (Seattle) can regain his 51-catch form of 2009 after missing all of last season with an injury. Significant losses:
The interior offensive line is undergoing a makeover with left guard Steve Hutchinson (Tennessee) and right guard Anthony Herrera (cut) no longer with the Vikings. Top draft needs:
Barring a trade down, all signs point to Minnesota choosing Southern Cal left tackle Matt Kalil with the No. 3 overall pick. A wide receiver is a likely target in the second or third rounds. Analysis:
With Spielman promoted to general manager after a 3-13 season, the Vikings can truly begin the roster overhaul that should have started last season. Grade:
