The Minnesota Vikings season is closed and while 2023 provided plenty of reasons to be optimistic about the future, it also highlighted issues that must be addressed this offseason. With it now being draft week, we put together a Vikings mock draft roundup to see who Minnesota might take in this week’s 2024 NFL Draft.

There will be plenty of Vikings draft needs to address on Thursday, starting at quarterback. However, the path for Minnesota to reclaim its place atop the NFC North requires significant improvements on both sides of the ball. It’s why as we examine 2024 NFL Draft mocks throughout the offseason, there’ll be a wide array of projected picks for Minnesota with analysts predicting the Vikings to address either side of the ball. With the Cousins to Falcons signing, these mocks have the Vikings first addressing quarterback in a major way.

All the buzz and news around the Vikings for the upcoming draft is that they are looking to draft a quarterback and would be willing to trade up to do so, especially now that they have acquired another first round pick. The question in this case then would be, is J.J McCarthy going to be there at #11, or where will the Vikes need to trade up to to snag him? Will he be the franchise guy? Obviously only time will tell but he did lead the Michigan Wolverines to a National Title, and ranked #11 in passing grade last season per, PFF.

The quarterbacks in the draft continue to likely be going higher and higher, and the Vikings are in desperate need of one, obviously. Maye is one of the guys that could be there for the Vikings if they’re willing to trade up, but it sounds like its going to take quite a bit to get up to around #3. Most people are back and forth on who would be better for the Vikings between these two, and along with Daniels only time will tell.
