Analyzing Minnesota Vikings' Best Options for No. 8 Pick in the NFL Draft

The Minnesota Vikings will be picking eighth in this year's NFL draft, which leaves them plenty of excellent options. 

For a team with as many holes to fill as the Vikings, having options is a good thing. Minnesota is in dire need of help at several positions, including quarterback, defensive tackle, linebacker and cornerback.

A lot of Vikings fans were frustrated by the second half of the 2013 season. A 1-7 start doomed the team to missing the playoffs, but a 4-3-1 second half only worked to keep the team out of the Top 5 in the draft.

No matter, what's done is done, and the Vikings sit in the eight spot next May.

The good news for the Vikings is that it's certainly not a top-heavy draft; the bad news might be that up to four quarterbacks might be off the board by the time the No. 8 pick rolls around.

It's still only January, and with both the free-agency season looming and the draft combine and pro days still to come, a lot will change on where prospective draftees might fall in the next four months.

That doesn't mean we can't dive in and take a look at the Vikings' best options for the No. 8 pick.
