Minnesota Vikings
10 Most Commonly Picked Players
Blake Bortles, QB, UCF , RS Jr  -  Going to the Vikings on 1497 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
A steal right here. Bortles has the arm and the size that scouts crave (6'4", 229 lbs) and the poise of a veteran QB.

Derek Carr, QB, Fresno State , RS Sr  -  Going to the Vikings on 921 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Vikings reach for a first round quarterback, sound familiar? Carr is a scheme fit for Norv Turner's offense though, so there is hope than he develops into the franchise quarterback the Vikings desperately need.

Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville , Jr  -  Going to the Vikings on 758 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Christian Ponder, the only decent QB in Minnesota, has voided his contract with the Vikings and won't be returning next year - as if the need at QB wasn't big enough for the purple people. The tossup between Derek Carr and Teddy Bridgewater here is a monumental one. The Vikings have expressed early interest in Carr and I would think him the favorite, but with Bridgewater sliding as far as he is, Minnesota, a playoff team only two years ago, might consider a safer prospect in Bridgewater. This is the hardest pick for me to call so far. It also makes a trade up for Derek Carr from another team very likely. I'm not going to try and forecast that though.

Johnny Manziel, QB, Texas A&M , RS Soph  -  Going to the Vikings on 527 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
Manziel will drop a bit. He's too confident and needs a team with a safety net. Mike Zimmer sent a huge smokescreen when criticizing Manziel's pro day. Zimmer and the Vikings have to take him. Manziel is too much of a play maker not to draft him if he is there at 8. Johnny Football will benefit from Adrian Peterson's impact on the field. Norv loves big quarterback but the Manziel & Peterson combo would make passing easier therefore not needing the biggest or strongest quarterback. A once-in-a-generation, run-around, ad-lib, sandlot-style quarterback who consistently won games playing a brand of fast-paced, jailbreak football that often goes off script and can be difficult both to game plan with and against. Is most comfortable on the move outside the pocket where he can find open throwing lanes and see the field and will command mush rush and extra spy defenders. Has defied the odds and proven to be a great college-system quarterback, but still must prove he is willing to work to be great, adjust his hard-partying, Hollywood lifestyle and be able to inspire his teammates by more than his playmaking ability. Overall character, leadership ability and work habits will define his NFL career. Rare competitiveness and third-down efficiency could carry him a long way, yet he could be challenged to avoid a crash-and-burn scenario if he does not settle down and mature. A high-risk, high-reward pick, Manziel stands to benefit from entering the NFL at a time when moving pockets are trending. No other quarterback can change the tempo of a game better if a demanding head coach feels confident he can manage the risk. -Nolan Nawrocki TRADE: Vikings get Falcons 1st (6), 3rd (68), and 4th (103) round picks.

Aaron Donald, DT, Pittsburgh , Sr  -  Going to the Vikings on 387 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Vikings need an improved D-line and I don't see them taking QB here.

Anthony Barr, OLB, UCLA , Sr  -  Going to the Vikings on 366 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Vikings have another year to Ponder their quarterback situation, but in the mean time they will grab the best linebacker in the draft. Calls to Favre go unanswered.

Khalil Mack, OLB, Buffalo , RS Sr  -  Going to the Vikings on 257 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
TRADE! If Buffalo's Khalil Mack is still here, look for the Vikings to try to make a play on him. He would fit very well in Minnesota and I think that he could be the best defensive rookie in 2014.

Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma State , Sr  -  Going to the Vikings on 214 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Vikings are at this pick from the Jake Matthews trade, and are getting the same guy that they would have taken at 8. Cornerback is also a pressing need in Minnesota because of the division they play in and the fact that Chris Cook has been worthless as a #2 corner.

C.J. Mosley, OLB, Alabama , Sr  -  Going to the Vikings on 177 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
I think Carr is very much in play her, but the Vikings opt to help out their depleted LB core.

Darqueze Dennard, CB, Michigan State , Sr  -  Going to the Vikings on 98 mock drafts
Featured Writeup:
The Vikings get this pick from their trade with the Giants from 8 to 12. The Vikings will likely look to trade down if they miss out on the top 3 QBs and CB Justin Gilbert. The Vikings could look to trade back again. Otherwise I think they would address defensive needs rather than taking a QB here. CB Darqueze Dennard would be a great pickup here. He is a very physical corner with enough speed. He would be a great complement to CB Xavier Rhodes.
