Vikings Draft Barr Before Trading Up to Select Bridgewater

The Minnesota Vikings may have finally found a playmaking quarterback to pair with their other offensive stars.

Teddy Bridgewater could be the new face of the franchise in Minnesota.

Teddy Bridgewater could be the new face of the franchise in Minnesota.

Minnesota traded its 2nd round (40 overall) and 4th round (108 overall) draft picks to the Seattle Seahawks in order to leap back into Thursday’s action and select Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. The trade came shortly after the NFL Media’s Albert Breer reported that Minnesota tried to trade for the 22nd overall pick to draft Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel. Cleveland ended up with the pick and drafted Manziel before they had a chance.

Bridgewater can hardly be classified as a consolation prize for Minnesota; he was previously viewed as the most NFL-ready quarterback in the draft before a poor pro day hurt his draft value. Bridgewater is a dual-threat quarterback who is trusted to make pre-snap adjustments. He should use his touch and timing to excel in an offense featuring an All-Pro running back in Adrian Peterson, a dynamic playmaker in Cordarrelle Patterson, and a talented veteran in Greg Jennings.

Anthony Barr is raw, but his talent is unquestioned.

Anthony Barr is raw, but his talent is unquestioned.

Minnesota used its original 1st round pick (9 overall) to draft UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr, giving new head coach Mike Zimmer a talented playmaker to use against the opposing NFC North quarterbacks.
