    Anybody that watched the 'Ole Miss game will be pretty skeptical with regards to Mettenberger. Didn't he get snatched up for a sex crime after getting beaten out of a job in Texas?

    Mettenberger definitely has some "issues" that should be flagged and discussed.

    But as for the one Ole Miss game ... it happens ... to the best of them.

    Mettenberger has ALL the tools that an average scout looks for. If it was not for his ACL injury he would be a first round lock and likely would be competing with the "Big 3" for a spot among the top 10 or so.

    The knee injury is significant and the off field issues are significant and should be discussed. But he could end up being a total steal in the third round for someone if he falls that far.

    I also have not seen ANYWHERE calling Bridgewater a multiple Pro Bowl QB. He is falling fast and since his atrocious Pro Day clearly more and more are looking at him as a nice QB at best.

    JM clearly has the biggest boom possibility and very few are arguing with that. They also know that he has the biggest bust possibility. I have seen a few that think Bortles or even Carr could blossom into something special ... but almost every account I have read says we know exactly what we have in Bridgewater already. Which is a solid starter ... nothing more.
    What I wouldn't do to have a solid starter at QB for the Vikings again though... Can't say I would be disappointed if Teddy was there at 8 (which I think he will be) and we take him (although I don't think we will).

    Oh ... I agree completely. I would think we would be hard pressed not to take him if Bortles and Manziel are off the board when we pick at No. 8. And the scouts are sometimes wrong. I was just commenting on the thread as it regards the common thought process on the two.

    I would prefer Manziel. I like his swagger. I think he wants to prove the world wrong ... and I like that. But if we end up with Bridgewater and he ends up a solid starter for 10 years ... I am good with that. Though "solid starters" sometimes find their way into one Super Bowl (see Joe Flacco) they rarely find themselves in multiple. Though ... at this point ... one Super Bowl would feel like fifty.

    My only question would be if you are happy with a solid starter why would you waste the # 8 pick. The next level of QBs all seem to be solid starters on paper. Carr, Mettenberger, McCarron why not get them in the third and fourth rounds if you are looking for a solid starter. If we pick a QB at #8 I want the p[ick to be a very good starter that is why I have been saying I would draft Bortles or Manziel with the #8 pick and that is it at QB. If you want Bridgewater trade back and get a few picks.

    Vikes are conducting a private workout today for Jimmy Garoppolo (per Adam Schefter).

    Look for us to go defense first round, QB second or third. Feel like we're gonna end up with either Garoppolo or AJ McCarren.
