NFL Draft 2015: Vikings Show Late Interest In QB Trevor Siemian


The draft is almost here and the Vikings are reportedly among several teams showing late interest in an unheralded QB prospect with a medical red flag.

According to Aaron Wilson, the Vikings were one of at least 11 teams who put in a call to Northwestern QB Trevor Siemian in just the last couple of days.

The 6-2, 215-pound Siemian was highly recruited out of high school and did enough good things at Northwestern to become a legit NFL prospect. But an ACL tear put him out of action for the Senior Bowl and the combine.

With teams scrambling to finalize their draft boards, and lots of teams apparently looking for developmental QBs, Siemian is suddenly a very wanted man.

This many teams lining up to make contact with Siemian in the waning days of the pre-draft process should inspire some club to use a 7th rounder on him so he doesn’t go into the UDFA pool.

The Denver Broncos are probably the team that has looked the hardest and longest at Siemian, and it’s believed Denver is ready to use one of their two seventh round compensatory picks on the QB.

The Vikings currently have three QBs on the roster, with Shaun Hill and Mike Kafka joining Teddy Bridgewater, but it’s thought they would like to add a developmental player to that mix.

Siemian is surely just one of several QBs the Vikings have made some contact with in recent weeks. That position could be a target in the seventh round.
