Minnesota Vikings

Impact moves: 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.
