8 NFL Draft Prospects Who Will Fill the Minnesota Vikings' Biggest Needs

Teddy Bridgewater is projected as the top quarterback in the 2014 NFL draft.

Quarterback—that's where Minnesota's draft prep should start and end. 

Christian Ponder hasn't panned out like a No. 12 overall pick should, Josh Freeman is a disaster, and Matt Cassel doesn't appear to be a long-term solution at the quarterback position. 

But don't get your hopes up on Teddy Bridgewater. The Louisville product is projected as the No. 1 overall pick, meaning the Vikings would need to trade up in the draft in order to acquire his services. 

With the number of high-quality quarterbacks expected to be available, don't look for the Vikings to trade up from their No. 8 pick, though. The purpose of this slideshow is to lay a foundation of eight players the Vikings should be considering with their No. 8 pick (we're only looking at the first-round pick in this slideshow). 

The following eight players are on this list because they can fill a need for the Vikings and have a good chance of being available when the Vikings are on the clock. 

Please speak up on who you'd want the Vikings to take at No. 8 in the comments section.
