    Johnny Football Dreams Are Over? (For Vikings)

    Looks like we are trying for defense first (which I don't think is a bad thing!) and trying to snag this stud in the 2nd round… Zach Mettenberger from LSU

    There is a month left on speculation. NO ONE'S dream is over ATM.

    If we pass on Manziel and Bortles, Mettenberger is the guy I want. He is a first round talent but he had some off filed issues and then blew out his knee (ACL). Great size and has one of the strongest arms in the draft. Great presence in the pocket and a good leader. The knock on him is that he locks onto his target and allows DBs to close on WRs. IMO Turner could work with this guy, very similar to Bortles with a bigger arm.

    There s only two things stopping you - fear and common sense!! The Truth you CAN"T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!!!!!

    Second round, and not before. I really think Zimmer and Spielman do not expect Manziel to fall to them now, so they are looking for a second option in case a stud defensive player drops to 8... OR more likely, they are going to trade back to get more picks and know they will need to get their QB in the second round or later.

    That they are looking beyond the top 4 QBs doesn't surprise me, it actually makes me happy; they are running through the most likely scenarios. For the record, I REALLY like Manziel if we draft a QB at 8, and Mettenberger if we wait until the 2nd round. Garopollo reminds me of Ponder WAAAYYY too much.

    Don't mind Mettenberger, but each day I have more love for AJ McCarron. The guy is a winner and reminds me of Russell Wilson in the fact that he gets the attention of guys around him and can lead a football team.

    I like McCarron too…but, he's got a lot in common with Ponder, in that, his wife is hot. Katherine Webb - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    I like to think I'm a fairly confident guy but I wouldn't even know what to do with Bortles' girlfriend.
