10 NFL Draft Prospects Every Minnesota Vikings Fan Should Know About
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport
AJ McCarron should be on Minnesota's radar for a quarterback in the 2014 draft.

By now, there are plenty of players you've thought about holding up a purple and gold Vikings jersey after being selected with the No. 8 pick in the 2014 draft. 

They include Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles and Derek Carr, to name a few.

All three of those quarterbacks could be available when Minnesota picks at No. 8, but there's more to the draft than the No. 8 pick, and there's more to this draft than just selecting a quarterback at No. 8. 

For all we know, the Vikings don't like any of the "top-tier quarterbacks" available in this draft and will wait another year to drop a top pick on a quarterback. 

The Vikings have serious holes in their secondary, linebacking corps, at defensive tackle and at offensive guard in addition to the quarterback position. 

Last week, I presented a slideshow with players who the Vikings will likely have the opportunity to consider with the No. 8 pick. 

This week, we'll look at players who would fit their needs and will likely be available between the second and fourth rounds. 

It's tough to get too specific about how each player will fit Minnesota's scheme, as the coaching staff isn't in place yet for us to know exactly what the scheme will be, but we can still assess players' fits relative to their position and how Minnesota's roster stands. 

These are 10 players who should be available between the second and fourth rounds and fit the Vikings' roster needs.
