Yet ANOTHER 2014 NFL Mock Draft, Complete 1st Round, V 1.0

9 of 14

No. 8 Minnesota Vikings: Blake Bortles, QB, UCF

Matt Cassel has already expressed his interest in leaving Minnesota. The Vikings have some solid skill-position players (Adrian Peterson, Greg Jennings, Cordarrelle Patterson, Kyle Rudolph, and a decent offensive line). First-year head coach Mike Zimmer will improve the defense. Offensive coordinator Norv Turner needs someone who can take advantage of those skill-position weapons.
