Minnesota Vikings draft Teddy Bridgewater: Fans react on Twitter

The Minnesota Vikings traded down one spot in the Top 10 to draft linebacker Anthony Barr, but everyone was watching them to see if they’d trade back up and take a quarterback at the end of the first round. With the last pick of the night on the clock, the Vikings moved into the first round thanks to the Seattle Seahawks and drafted Teddy Bridgewater to round out the evening.

Bridgewater was likely going to be taken with the first pick of the Houston Texans in the second round so the Vikings simply jumped them and took Bridgewater in Round one. Given the laughable quarterback play for the Vikings as of late, fans on Twitter were mrs than happy to welcome in another quarterback to be the leader of the future.

    The vikings should have let houston screw up by taking Bridgewater. Let other teams hurt themselves. Don’t give away your picks and your superbowl hopes and your future by being the team to screw up yourself! Dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb. Franchise crippling error. Just wait and grab mettenberger later. Utterly painful being a purple fan. Watch texans grab mettenberger round three and pocket multiple superbowls. Ugh.

      mettenberg? you mean the women grabbing, party drinking, and drug test fail guy?

        Yep, on the first part, nope on the drugs. He had no drugs in his system. Medical doctors wouldn’t put their reputations on the line for him as they did defending him if he was dirty. He also asked to be tested again immediately but the league denied him. applaud the titans for waiting until round six and still getting the best QB in the draft. Mettenberger is the only QB in the draft who made his numbers throwing professional quality passes vs professional quality defenses in the sec. Bridgewater has a ceiling like a pennington, mettenberger has one similar to a brady. Mettenberger can carry a team. Bridgewater is another guy on a team.
