Bridgewater may drop further but if Vikes stay at 8, he could be available.

Could be he is falling, but why is he falling? Do we want him if he if falling?

Carr is looking good as is Bortles from what little I've read.

Pro Days are script to make the player look good. Bridgewater always plays with a glove & for some reason he decided not to wear one for his pro day. Carr is a good QB no denying that. I knew his pro day would be good The thing is Carr wasn't facing a defense & when you put heavy pressure on him His accuracy drops way down Carr is kind of like Ponder with a little stronger arm.

I don't pay much attention to that anymore. I just ignore him.

I want to know why Bridgewater fell from the top to now 8th?

He hasn't fallen. This is dome talking heads wild ass guess. They get paid to write articles based on no facts. I'm kind of ignoring all the mock drafts and articles about who is rising and falling. Only team front officwes know the real truth and they don't share.

No ! many teams are second guessing Bridgewater because of his weight & Body frame & his lack of arm strength, How he loops the ball on deep throws. They say if he does this in the NFL denfenders are going to pick him off. & That's why he is starting to drop they say. How can Stubby know anything he just said he doesn't read none of the mocks or what the experts has to say. he doesn't have the highest football IQ.

Joe Webb to play for the Carolina Panthers a backup to Cam Newton Their in need of quarterback depth now that Cam will miss the off-season, due to ankle surgery . They must have got Webb super cheep Their are better free agent QBs if their willing to pay a little more.

Bridgewater...yeah....ahh..NO. Manzel...NO. Carr or Garapallo. I don't care if the spelling is wrong....you know who I mean.
Simply because there is no consensus tells us that there is no sure-fire QBOTF available and is a "must pick". Whom-ever we pick will need to be developed.
Now about Viking Nation.....he knows "shit" about the Military but has knowledge about the Vikings. As long as his posts exclude the Military, I will read his posts. Time to move along. Hate me if you must.....you won' be the 1st....nor the last.

Anybody but Johnny socalled football.That guy is a bust waiting to happen.

Bridgwater is making excuses for his horrible pro day.

Peterson had it right our only playoff hope for this year was mike Vick. The hall of famer has no belief in the two bums we have at QB now nor do I.

The Fake Vikings Fan is back. Casting his curse upon every QB he talks about. Ok so much for the pleasantries. Again you've displayed a lack of football knowledge (or any knowledge for that matter). You've also again shown that your opinion is much like the wind. It changes from minute to minute.

Vick is the "worst" QB the Vikings could have signed. People all over America hate this guy for his past activities. Signing him would have made it unable to not only sell tickets, hell we probably couldn't give them away. Furthermore he is washed up.

Now go away little boy and come back when you have a high-school diploma and a college degree. Let the smart men of this forum talk football.

You are entitled to you're opinion ( however misguided ). My opinion of Vick joining the Vikings is that I would be hoping he suffered a career ending injury ( even though his career is more than likely over anyway ) on the first snap of the first preseason game. The only thing thats unfair about that, is that unlike his dogs, he would still get to live after he was unable to compete. Do I sound harsh and cruel? You bet I do. Anyway, I dont think Manziel is a fit, I dont even think the others are early-pick worthy. None of them seem to be day-one starters. Bridgewater, Bortles, Carr...mid to late first round, Garapollo, McCarron, Manziel, Murray...2nd to 3rd rounders

Carr stinks as much as his brother does. You still don't know how to pick the QB position. Stick to the OL that is all you know about..

If you don't think Vick is better than the backups we have the QB position has past you by altho you are right about Bridgewater, Bortles, Carr Garapollo, McCarron, Manziel, Murray.
most mock drafts have us drafting the little guy manziel which means 4 more years of terrible QB play..

Didnt say Vick wasnt better, personally cant stand the guy, and I dont think Cassel, Ponder OR Vick is good enough at the QB position to LEAD the Vikings into the play-offs this year. IMO I dont see the Vikings fielding a consistently competitive team for another two years, and thats IF they can pick the right QB to develop.

what kind of career do you think Manziel will have? Like I said most mocks have us selecting the Doug Flutie look a like. If we could get Logan Thomas in the 3rd I would take a chance on him,.

Tough call on Manziel, I think he will need a good O-line as well as his scrambling ability for time to see the whole field and go through his progressions. His size is a concern injury- wise. I think a system will have to be built around him rather than plugging him into one. If its done right he may be okay. Comparisons have been made to Tarkenton as to his scrambling, but hell, wouldnt you have run too if Dick Butkus was bearing down on you? I could be wrong, but everything I have read says the Vikings OC Turner prefers a QB that can have patience in the pocket, move to avoid pressure, and fire the long ball. I have seen that Manziel can move and fire the ball, but have also read that he tucks and runs too soon. Logan Thomas is very raw as far as development, but there is potential if he wants it bad enough, and I think he will be there past the 3rd. I would be willing to take a chance on Carr, if the Vikes trade down and he is there late 1st rd. The biggest knock on him so far is his panick under pressure. Mettenburger and Murray scare me due to the ACL tears. As I said, I think all the QB's in this draft need some development and no matter who is chosen, I will wait and see what Norv Turner can do with them before I make any judgement. I will still watch every game, but I think the coaching staff, like me, was not expecting to come out of the gate like a powerhouse this year or maybe even the next.

Manziel seems to be a poor man's mike vick. I don't think there is anything vick can do that Manziel does better. Vick is muck faster better arm and much more athletic.

As for Carr I hear 75 percent of his pass completions were less than 9 yards and is not accurate down the field.

As long as our offense goes thru Peterson I do not see Manziel as a fit, besides, I don't like his attitude. I think his style is Ponder, part 2. Bridgewater is an injury waiting to happen. He may be the most ready to start but so what, his ceiling is low. We are not looking for an instant starter.
Carr is my choice...followed by Garapollo. But, like Pro-Cynic, I am a Viking fan, thru thick and thin. I'll cheer for whom-ever is behind center.
