MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Vikings' roster is all but complete after the conclusion of the 2014 NFL draft. Let's take a brief look at where things stand at this point, and where they could change between now and training camp. Rookies are in all caps:
Projected starter: Matt Cassel
Comment: Cassel begins the year as the starter; we'll see how soon Bridgewater can push for the job.
Projected starter: Adrian Peterson
Comment: Peterson is the undisputed starter here, but look for the Vikings to get him a little help and use McKinnon as a change of pace.
Projected starter: Jerome Felton
Backups: Zach Line
Comment: Felton restructured his deal during the offseason, and Line -- who might factor into the passing game more prominently -- could push him.
Comment: If Simpson faces NFL discipline after an arrest on drunken-driving charges last November, the Vikings could turn to Thielen for a larger role -- or look for more help at the position.
Projected starter: Kyle Rudolph
Comment: Rudolph could be in line for a big year in Norv Turner's offense. Don't discount Ford as a pass-catching option.
Projected starter: John Sullivan
Comment: Sullivan has this position solidified. Berger is in place as a capable backup.
Projected starter: Matt Kalil
Backups: Mike Remmers
Comment: Kalil didn't progress as much as the Vikings would have liked in Year 2, but he's still in line to be the left tackle for the next decade. The Vikings have other players who could swing out to tackle if needed, such as rookie David Yankey or even Charlie Johnson.
Projected starter: Charlie Johnson
Backups: Berger, DAVID YANKEY, Vlad Ducasse, Jeff Baca
Comment: Don't discount the idea of Yankey pushing Johnson for the starting spot; he could turn out to be a steal for the Vikings in the fifth round, and an effective road grader at guard.
Projected starter: Brandon Fusco
Backups: Berger, YANKEY, Ducasse, Baca
Comment: Fusco made major strides forward last season and could be in line for a new contract with a solid year in 2014.
Projected starter: Phil Loadholt
Backups: Kevin Murphy, YANKEY
Comment: Loadholt, like the rest of this line, has been durable. He missed one game because of a concussion last year but has played every other one since 2010.
Projected starter: Brian Robison
Comment: Robison could shift to Jared Allen's old spot at right end, but he thinks Everson Griffen will start there. "They gave him a lot of money," Robison said last month. "I don't think it was to be a left end."
Projected starter: Everson Griffen
Backups: Wootton, CRICHTON, Trattou, Spencer Nealy
Comment: The Vikings are counting on a big step forward from Griffen, who got $20 million in guaranteed money this offseason.
Projected starter: Sharrif Floyd
Comment: Floyd showed signs of growth at the end of his rookie season, but there will be plenty expected of him in Year 2 as the three-technique tackle in Mike Zimmer's defense. He needs to show he can be Zimmer's version of Geno Atkins in Minnesota.
Projected starter: Linval Joseph
Comment: The Vikings gave Joseph a five-year deal to be their new version of Pat Williams; a run-stuffing nose tackle who can fortify the middle of the Vikings' line.
Projected starter: Jasper Brinkley
Comments: This position could be up for grabs; Brinkley fits better as a downhill linebacker in Zimmer's scheme than he did when he was asked to drop into coverage in Leslie Frazier's Cover-2 defense, so he gets the early nod here, but Cole played well enough at the end of last season to fight for the spot, particularly if Anthony Barr is ready to start outside early.
Projected starter: Audie Cole
Comments: Cole gets the early nod here, but the Vikings won't hold Barr back if he proves he can take the job to start the year.
Projected starter: Chad Greenway
Backup: Mauti, BRANDON WATTS
Comment: As Zimmer said last week, Greenway's position isn't changing; he's playing the same spot he was in a Cover-2 defense, but the strong and weak-side linebacker spots in a Cover-2 are flipped from what they would normally be. Mauti has played some outside linebacker in the past, and could also get a look as a backup here.
Projected starter: Xavier Rhodes
Comment: Rhodes looked ready to take off at the end of last season, and the Vikings will expect big things out of him in Year 2. Robinson should be more comfortable on the outside than he was playing in the slot last season.
Projected starter: Captain Munnerlyn
Backups: Robinson, Cox, Sherels, JAMES, PRICE
Comment: Munnerlyn will likely slide inside in the Vikings' nickel package, which could leave plenty of snaps open here for Robinson or Cox on passing downs.
Projected starter: Jamarca Sanford
Comment: There will be plenty of competition at this spot; Sanford was working with the first team in the Vikings' voluntary minicamp last month, but Sendejo and Coleman, in particular, could push him.
Projected starter: Harrison Smith
Backups: Sendejo, Coleman, EXUM, Blanton, Raymond
Comment: Smith is recovered from the turf toe injury that kept him out for half of last season. He looks like a star in the making, and the Vikings have big plans for him in Year 3.
