Minnesota Vikings takeaway No. 6

The Vikings know their draft position now.

Speaking of the 2024 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings will hold the 11th selection. The team will have a lot of needs to fill and a selection that early ensures there should be some fantastic talent available.

Will the Vikings look for their quarterback of the future in this draft or will they load up on some defensive talent? There are quite a few directions Minnesota could go with their first round pick this year.

Expect quarterback talk and draft talk to dominate fan circles, with the two topics not being mutually exclusive. Everyone is certain to have an opinion on the direction they feel the franchise should take in 2024.

Sadly, the end of the Minnesota Vikings season means that these discussions will start early. In fact, they are most likely already happening on most social media platforms and many eyes will likely be on the NCAA Championship game on Monday night where two interesting passers will be on display.
