Michael Rand and Vikings digital reporter Master Tesfatsion take a look at quarterbacks to watch on the final day of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Vikings not expected to have private workout or have Blake Bortles visit Minnesota

By Chris Tomasson ctomasson@pioneerpress.com The Vikings have seen enough of quarterback Blake Bortles. A source said the team is not expected to bring Bortles to Minnesota for a visit or have a private workout with him. But that hardly means the Vikings aren’t considering the Central Florida star with the No. 8 pick in the first round of the May 8-10 draft.
