2. Minnesota Vikings

The second team that makes sense is last year's NFC North Champions, the Minnesota Vikings. Already, they possess a potent offense featuring maybe the best wide receiver in the game in Justin Jefferson. Kirk Cousins has been "good enough" since landing in Minnesota, but he doesn't appear to be the guy who can be the reason Minnesota wins the big games.

Dalvin Cook certainly helped the offense's cause, but he's gone. Now, it's up to Alexander Mattison to shoulder the load. While Minnesota has shown a lot of belief in Mattison, Taylor would be a massive upgrade. Putting a top-5 running back on the same offense as Jefferson, T.J. Hockenson and Jordan Addison could make things real fun in that division.

If Minnesota wants to take a shot at landing Taylor, I would assume they throw Mattison into the deal. But, because Mattison is no where near the established talent, the Vikings would certainly have to give up a package of picks along the lines of second and a third-round pick.

The Colts wouldn't get a first rounder, but they likely won't get that from anyone. If they want to make a deal, this could be one of the best offers they see, and in turn, Minnesota would look at being the favorite to win this division for the second-straight year.
