NFL Draft rumors: Minnesota Vikings to choose between Bridgewater, Wenning, Renner or Savage?


As the Mike Zimmer era gets set to begin for the Minnesota Vikings, it’s been rumored that he may address the quarterback situation in the NFL Draft next month. If he is going to, it appears that he may have his choices narrowed down to four potential candidates.

According to Albert Breer, as part of the pre-draft process, the team has only brought in Teddy Bridgewater, Tom Savage, Keith Wenning and Bryn Renner in for visits.


All four of these signal callers fit the mold of the traditional pro-style offense that Zimmer will likely run in Minnesota, but it seems that it if the team is trying to make a final decision on one of these four, it all depends where they plan on taking a quarterback.

Both Bridgewater and Savage are considered potential first or second round selections, while Renner and Wenning would go much later in the event, possibly beginning late in the third round and carrying over into the fourth and beyond.

    I could be wrong, but I don’t remember Slick Rick EVER displaying ANY interest in ANY player he has picked in the first round. So these are the first four on my list that will not be picked unless they plummet.

    What I find interesting is that the one guy they seem to have interest in but never overtly show it with is Garappolo. Spielman is never this transparent with his picks. I agree, if he is showing this much interest this early on it’s likely because he wants someone else.

    Yea I have to say something is up with Spielman, Also when did Salvage become a 1st or 2nd round talent last I heard he was a 4th or 5th round. Also this could mean the Viks are gunna take Teddy with the #8 and one of the others in later rounds cause he did say they would think about taking 2 QBs in the draft. Who really knows what this means it might mean there gunna take 1 or 2 of these guys and it might be there going for someone else that’s why I cant wait for the draft I wish Goodell would have never extended this. I hope he gets booed even worse than usal.
