8. Minnesota Vikings
Derek Carr
QB, Fresno State

Sebastian’s Take: Minnesota lands the last of the day one quarterbacks in Derek Carr. Personally, I have Carr as the number three quarterback on my big board ahead of UCF’s Blake Bortles, so I think the Vikings brass should be happy to land a QB with extensive experience and maturity. With first round pick Cordarrelle Patterson waiting to stretch the field with his speed, having the QB with the biggest arm in the draft is a big plus.
