For the second time in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings have made a move to address the defensive line.

With Pick #130 in the 2020 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings have selected defensive tackle James Lynch from Baylor University.

As you can see from the sidebar, Lynch had a monstrous season for Baylor in 2019, as he was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year and a Unanimous All-American selection, among other accolades. His 13.5 sacks led the Big 12 Conference in that category

Lynch appears to be someone that can, at the very least, step into the rotation at the three-technique spot for the Vikings and provide some interior pass rush.

Jordan Reid of The Draft Network has PLAYER ranked as the #10 interior defensive lineman and the #108 overall player on the Big Board in his Draft Guide.

Welcome to Minnesota, James Lynch!
