It's NFL mock draft season again. It's always mock draft season, isn't it?
As the Vikings sit at 1-3 heading into the team's week 5 bye, many fans are already looking toward the future. Well, fret not, Vikings fans. CBS Sports has a couple notable draft spots in the most recent mock draft.
The draft order is far from decided, but CBS Sports projects the Vikings for the seventh overall pick in 2014.
One analyst, Rob Rang, suggests the Vikings will take Brett Hundley out of UCLA. The other analyst in the mock draft, Dane Brugler, says Clemson's Tajh Boyd will be the target.
Apparently, something in the first quarter of the season has suggested the Vikings will soon be looking for a quarterback.
Where'd that idea germinate?
Lucky for the Vikings, this draft class is said to be notably deep at quarterback.
Two other names that are noteworthy locally show up in the first round. Rang projects Ra'Shede Hageman, the Gophers defensive tackle, will be a first rounder. He has Hageman slated at 31, to the Seattle Seahawks.
Brugler pegs Hageman two picks earlier, to the New Englad Patriots at No. 29. At 31, Brugler projects former Cretin-Derham Hall standout Seantrel Henderson. He was formerly a Gophers recruiting target when Tim Brewster was in charge. He chose USC but opted out of that scholarship in favor of the University of Miami in the wake of sanctions involving recruiting violations over Reggie Bush.
