Danielle Hunter is another quiet but quality candidate

The Minnesota Vikings are on the verge of selling all assets as a 1-4 football team. With quarterback Kirk Cousins' contract up this offseason, the team may be offloading all assets to load up draft capital in hopes of landing one of the top signal-callers in the talented 2024 NFL Draft class.

One of those assets would be the 26-year-old star defensive end Danielle Hunter. Compared to Brian Burns and Maxx Crosby, he is on the same level as both in rushing the passer. He has six sacks on the season, one more than the above-mentioned duo.

Should the Silver and Black be of the mindset of offloading either their first or second round pick in 2024 and a piece like Hunter Renfrow, a Hunter for Hunter trade is not out of the question. Last but not least, there is one final option for Las Vegas.
