The Vikings might have found a new offensive coordinator in Norv Turner, but Minnesota's search for a franchise quarterback remains a work in progress. After the bumbling trio of Christian Ponder, Matt Cassel and Josh Freeman led to a last-place finish in the NFC North, we fully expect this front office to give the team's new play-caller something fresh to work with in 2014. Turner agrees. "Quarterbacks come from a lot of different spots," he told reporters Thursday. "A third-rounder wins the Super Bowl and there's some pretty good players who weren't drafted high. I think everybody is in agreement: We're trying to add a young quarterback to the organization. So, you just gotta make sure it's a good one wherever you get him." NFL Media draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah correctly pegged the Vikings as "very unsettled" under center, adding "I could see them going in that direction" with the eighth overall selection in May. Minnesota, of course, will face competition with the Texans, Jaguars, Browns and Raiders all picking ahead in the order and looming as logical candidates to take a passer.
