Through multiple moves, the Minnesota Vikings closed out their 2014 NFL draft by making ten selections. The defensive side of the ball got the focus with seven of the ten picks, with depth and competition being the focus.
The acquisition of Teddy Bridgewater is the story on the offensive side of the ball—if not their entire draft. Minnesota moved up the board to go and get their quarterback. They used middle round picks on a running back and offensive guard as well.
By most accounts, the amount of talent that didn't get drafted this year is at an all-time high. A record 98 underclassmen declaring has a lot to do with that. All teams will be on the market for undrafted free agents. These are the ones the Vikings snatched up at the conclusion of the draft.
