The Minnesota Vikings went 5-10-1 in 2013, a season after riding the legs of NFL MVP Adrian Peterson into a playoff berth. The Vikings have eight picks in the 2014 NFL draft, and the team knows opponents will continue to stack the box on Peterson unless they get him some help on offense. Minnesota has repeatedly been linked to the draft's top quarterbacks.

Needs: Quarterback, cornerback, weakside linebacker
