Minnesota Vikings Mock Draft: 7-Round Predictions Post Combine

Blake Bortles would be a great No. 8 pick but is unlikely to be available at that slot.

The biggest need for the Minnesota Vikings is at the quarterback position.

The biggest problem for the Vikings is that the big three quarterbacks (Blake Bortles, Johnny Manziel and Teddy Bridgewater) of this class are all likely to be gone by the time they make the No. 8 selection. 

That was the thought process before the NFL combine. 

Well, the combine has passed...and nothing has changed. That is, unless you are a firm follower of ESPN's Ron Jaworski, who said he wouldn't select Manziel in the first three rounds. 

Aside from him, very few people believe those three quarterbacks will last long, which makes it that much more important for the Vikings to sign a veteran who can start in 2014 and draft a project-type quarterback later in the 2014 draft, whom offensive coordinator Norv Turner can mold. 

That mindset is reflected in the seven-round mock draft here. 

The Vikings have plenty of defensive needs, and that side of the ball will receive plenty of help in this mock. 

Step inside as we go pick by pick for the Vikings' 2014 draft.
