Minneapolis, MN (WDAY TV) - The NFL Draft is two weeks away and it’s an important one for new Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer. Minnesota has the 8th overall pick with lots of holes to address from the quarterback to the defense.

Zimmer is a defensive guy, but the Vikes have been working out plenty of quarterbacks as well and the new head coach says he's looking for his kind of player.

Mike Zimmer/Vikings Head Coach: “You want to get a nucleus of starters but you want to get some guys that can come in and take place that grow older or moving on with free agency, really we're trying to build a steady organization that's built for the long haul.”

Plenty of mock drafts have the Vikes taking former Heisman winner Johnny Manziel.
