• Kiper's Mock 3.0: Vikings

    Summary of 3 articles · Updated Mar 13, 2014
    Check out Mel Kiper's Mock Draft 3.0 in a few hours to see which players he thinks the Vikings should target with the eighth pick. In his third mock draft, ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has a quarterback and a headline-grabber, at that sliding to the Vikings at No. 8: He's got them taking Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel , as the top three quarterbacks in the draft all slide out of the top three overall picks. The Vikings would have interest in Buffalo linebacker Khalil Mack , whom Kiper now has projected to go No. 1 overall to Houston, and with the Matt Cassel signing, they are not obligated to take a quarterback with the eighth overall pick. Vikings free agent left guard Charlie Johnson said by phone today that he remains in communication with the Vikings but has been told to look around first before the two sides talk further. But if the Vikings can't get one of the top quarterbacks with the eighth overall pick, they could conceivably wait until the second or third rounds to take a QB, rather than reaching for one in the first round. But Manziel would give them a dynamic young quarterback to build around and would certainly add a jolt of excitement to a fan base that hasn't had much of it at quarterback lately, save for two years with Brett Favre .
