    I believe it's actually Lestar. The name alone has to be worth a chance. Pretty sure his momma knew he was going to be a star some day, either that or she was a big fan of the bridal company.

    Depending on who falls to #8, not sure I want to take a QB there.

    I do not want Manziel, though if the Vikings take him I will root like hell for him to be successful.

    Not wild about Mettenberger. Strong arm, yes, but a statue in the pocket and makes plenty of bad decisions. Plus, plead guilty to sexual assault (grabbing a girls boobs and butt). If the Vikes took him, wouldn't want him before the 3rd round.

    Bridgewater's pro day scared me a lot, but the more I read, the more comfortable I feel about taking him. And if you want him, it would probably have to be at #8

    But the guy I'm really targeting is Garoppolo, assuming we could get him in the 2nd round (or not have to trade away anything more than our late 3rd or our 4th round pick to move up to get him). Has some concerns, but also a lot of positive qualities. And it would allow us to focus on getting a stud OLB or WR at #8...though a backup plan of Bridgewater at #8 and Van Noy at #40 isn't a bad way to go.

    Good idea here. Mettenberger, McCarron, and Garappalo (or however you spell his name) would be good picks in the second rd. I love the idea of getting a beast like Mack in the first rd.

    Garappolo really give me the heebee geebees. I don't know why, but he reminds me of Ponder a LOT. McCarron looks better, but again, the fire I've seen in other QBs just doesn't seem to be there. I guess this is why finding a great QB is so frikkin hard!!

    Bridgewater has red flags that are a LOT more serious than Manziels, in that there are rumors among players that you can rattle him, and if you can be rattled in College, you WILL be rattled in the NFL. It in inevitable.

    I am hoping for one the defensive stars at 8, Manziel or Bortles, or we trade down. Unfortunately, we might be going all in on Bridgewater, which means I'm going to be a bit queasy until we see him in action.

    Johnny Football Dreams Are Over? (For Vikings)

    I agree about Bridgewater. Small hands (not good for TCF) and seems timid. Slight build. I'm kinda intrigued by Savage in the 2nd (3rd?) if Mett isn't there.

    Johnny Football Dreams Are Over? (For Vikings)

    Just to take this back to the original poster's point, I do NOT think the Vikings have decided against Manziel. I refuse to believe anyone that insists they are sure we are doing anything, I won't believe anything until a week before the draft. Then I'll believe about 10% of what's out there.

    Until then, I'm hoping for Manziel at 8, BPA, or we trade back.

    It is obvious that Zimmer SAYS he is not impressed.
