According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk, the Minnesota Vikings tried to move up into the top-10 for Fields. In a video released by the Carolina Panthers from inside their war room, the Vikings called Carolina to see about moving up from No. 14 overall to No. 8 overall.

As we all know, the Panthers did not take the Vikings’ offer and instead took cornerback Jaycee Horn. Meanwhile, Minnesota dropped back from No. 14 and drafted offensive lineman Christian Darrisaw with the No. 23 overall pick in the first round.

The Vikings eventually addressed quarterback by taking former Texas A&M quarterback Kellen Mond in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft. Mond will look to be the backup behind starter Kirk Cousins, who has two seasons left on his current deal.
