Charles Davis sends Vikings EDGE rusher, not QB in mock draft

The Minnesota Vikings are in a position where they can go in multiple directions to help build their franchise. The defensive needs pieces on all three levels to continue the growth Brian Flores started last season while the offense is going to need at the very least a quarterback of the future.

In his latest mock draft, NFL Network’s Charles Davis doesn’t have the Vikings taking a quarterback in the first round but rather Florida State edge rusher Jared Verse.

The Vikings boost the pass rush in hopes of overtaking Detroit and Green Bay in the division.

It was a tough draw for the Vikings in this mock draft, as the top four quarterbacks went in the top six.  If that happens and the Vikings don’t re-sign Kirk Cousins, things would be really interesting for the Vikings.

Who could they target in free agency? Sam Darnold? Baker Mayfield? Needless to say, fans wouldn’t be too thrilled.
