Kyle’s Pick: Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville
Landing the most pro-ready quarterback in the draft seems almost too good to be true for Minnesota. It is a very real scenario, though. The Vikings will benefit from Teddy’s leadership and willingness to put in the work in the film room. Bridgewater is a clear upgrade under center for the Vikings.

Dan’s Pick: Derek Car, QB, Fresno State
The Christian Ponder project is certainly coming to close in Minnesota. The Vikings may look to a guy like Carr to be their future franchise quarterback. He’s at least the best remaining QB on the board at this point.
