The proposed Vikings trade for the No. 2 pick prompts the Commanders to seriously contemplate their options.

The Minnesota Vikings find themselves in a challenging position as they seek a long-term solution at quarterback while holding the No. 11 overall pick in the 2024 draft. This places them just beyond the range for top QB prospects like Caleb Williams, Drake Maye, Jayden Daniels, and J.J. McCarthy, yet too early to consider the next tier of options including Bo Nix and Michael Penix Jr.

Given their longstanding interest in the former group, the Vikings may entertain the idea of executing a blockbuster trade to move up. If they pursue this route, Bleacher Report’s Kristopher Knox suggests a hypothetical three-team trade that the Washington Commanders would need to seriously contemplate.

Knox builds on the notion that the Cardinals could serve as an initial trade partner in this scenario. He proposes that the Vikings could potentially move up to the No. 4 spot but then leverage that position to climb even higher. Since Minnesota lacks second- or third-round selections, trading a future first-rounder might be the sole viable means to execute such a maneuver.

While the series of moves would undoubtedly come at a steep price, it would secure the Vikings the second-best quarterback option according to their evaluations.
