Vikings reportedly had Johnny Manziel ahead of Teddy Bridgewater
ESPN’s Bob Holtzman reported Friday that an assistant coach who had seen the team’s draft board said the Vikings had Johnny Manziel ahead of Teddy Bridgewater.
It’s also been reported that the Vikings were trying to work a trade to draft Manziel later in the first round, which is what the Cleveland Browns managed to do.
Not getting Manziel and ending up with Bridgewater does not mean the Vikings aren’t happy, but it does tell us that they preferred to have Johnny Football.
This will be a great nugget to keep in mind as we see each quarterback develop in the league.
