With a mid-round pick, the Minnesota Vikings selected former Wake Forest quarterback Jamie Newman in a recent 2021 mock draft.

With the Minnesota Vikings missing the playoffs in two of their first three seasons with Kirk Cousins as their starting quarterback, some have wondered if the team should consider finding his eventual replacement in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft.

Adding more fuel to the argument about why the Vikings should draft a quarterback this year is the fact that they could be in need of a new backup behind Cousins for next season.
