If there is anything that we can predict about what the Minnesota Vikings are going to do during the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft later this month, it's that it seems very likely that they will be using one of their first selections on one of the top quarterback prospects.

Kirk Cousins is no longer the starting quarterback for the Vikings, and even if the newly acquired Sam Darnold is going to open up the 2024 season as the team's starting signal-caller, he's not expected to keep that role for very long.

So, for the last few weeks, Minnesota's coaching staff and members of the team's front office have been meeting with a number of quarterback prospects who will be available in this year's NFL Draft.

According to multiple reports, the Vikings have only met with six 2024 passing prospects this offseason. However, these six young quarterbacks are regarded by most as the six best in their class.

So, who are the 2024 quarterback prospects Minnesota has met with during the last few weeks?

Caleb Williams - USC

Assumed by many to be the quarterback the Chicago Bears will select with the No. 1 overall pick in this year's NFL Draft, Caleb Williams reportedly met with the Vikings earlier this year during the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine.

There have been no reports of Minnesota holding a private workout with Williams this offseason, as, they too, likely believe he's probably going to end up with the Bears.

Drake Maye - North Carolina

Drake Maye is someone who the Vikings have shown a lot of interest in during the last few weeks. Minnesota met with him at the Scouting Combine, they had members of their coaching staff in attendance during his Pro Day at North Carolina, and they reportedly held a private workout with the young passing prospect, according to Sports Illustrated's Albert Breer.

Jayden Daniels - LSU

Up until recently, the Vikings had not shown that much interest in Daniels, as they had only met with him at this year's Scouting Combine.

However, NFL Media's Ian Rapoport revealed on Thursday that Minnesota has scheduled a private workout with the former LSU quarterback in the near future to get a closer look at him before the first day of the 2024 NFL Draft begins on April 25.

J.J. McCarthy - Michigan

Similar to Maye, McCarthy is someone who the Vikings have shown a lot of interest in this offseason. He met with Minnesota at this year's Scouting Combine (which he raved about), Vikings quarterbacks coach Josh McCown attended his Pro Day, and the team has also reportedly held a private workout with him, according to Breer.

Michael Penix Jr. - Washington

Penix has also received a bunch of interest from the Vikings this offseason, and like some of the other top 2024 quarterback prospects, he met with them at the Scouting Combine, and he reportedly participated in a private workout held by the team after his Pro Day at Washington according to Bleacher Report's Jordan Schultz.

Bo Nix - Oregon

Nix might be someone who could be flying under the radar as a legitimate option for Minnesota if they are unable to trade up in the first round this year. This offseason, the Vikings met with the former Oregon quarterback at the 2024 Scouting Combine, and they reportedly held a private workout with him, according to Breer.
