With the eighth overall pick in our 2014 Big Blue View Community Mock Draft, 'ad3lm0' has made the choice I think most expected him to make for the Minnesota Vikings. That is Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

'ad3lm0' explains:

The Vikings can't rely on Cassel or Ponder, it's time to move on and Bridgewater is the best QB in the draft. Yeah he had a poor pro day, but the film shows that he can make throws under pressure with a good accuracy and has a lot of pocket presence. With Patterson and Jennings to catch for him and AP to make defenses hesitate I can see him having a good year.

Valentine's View

The way our draft broke I really didn't see any other logical pick for Minnesota. If, in fact, Bridgewater is there for the Vikings in the real draft on May 8 I don't see how they pass on him. And yes, I know Johnny Manziel is still out there in this draft.
