The Minnesota Vikings will be interested in this year’s quarterback class after Kirk Cousins suffered a season-ending injury on Sunday afternoon.

The Minnesota Vikings were always going to have interest in the quarterbacks available in the 2024 NFL Draft. But their plans may have gone into overdrive after Kirk Cousins suffered a torn Achilles in the victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday afternoon.

Cousins’s injury is a critical blow to a team that was pushing toward a playoff spot, and with the 2023 season in jeopardy, the Vikings could turn their attention to what could be the deepest quarterback class in recent memory.

This year’s class has a pair of potential franchise-caliber prospects in Drake Maye and Caleb Williams. There are also several under-the-radar prospects whose stock could rise over the coming months and gain first-round steam as we go through the draft process.

While the Vikings could opt for a bigger splash and trade for an established quarterback, the NFL Draft could be a better long-term option to take advantage of the rookie salary window and get a signal caller for the next 10 years.

In this article, we’ll take a look at 5 names the Vikings should be interested in and what they could bring to the table as Minnesota could be looking for its next franchise quarterback.
