Vikings tried moving up to pick Justin Fields in 2021 NFL Draft – New York Post

by

The Vikings’ murky future at quarterback reportedly led them to try to trade up for Justin Fields.

Minnesota attempted to move up from No. 14 to No. 8 in the 2021 NFL Draft, according to a video published by the Carolina Panthers, as the Vikings’ plan was to draft Fields, Pro Football Talk reported Sunday.

The Bears instead traded up from 20th-overall to land the former Ohio State star at No. 11, meaning the Vikings will face Fields twice a year.

With current starting quarterback Kirk Cousins saying recently he doesn’t want his contract extended, the Vikings are far from set at the position. One possibility could be 2021 third-round pick Kellen Mond.

But it seems Minnesota wanted Fields.
