8. Minnesota Vikings

Derek Carr

Quarterback, Fresno State

The Vikings reach for a quarterback here because they desparetyly need one. They would actually be better off either trading up for one of the top three signal callers, or trading down for more picks and just going for quantity at other positions.

But, they won’t do either of those. They’ll stand put, take Carr, and spend the next two to three years watching him struggle. Sorry, Minnesota.
