NFL Draft 2011: Minnesota Vikings Reach for Florida State Quarterback Christian Ponder

The Vikings waited about as long as possible to make their current pick, presumably because they wanted to trade down. Since they didn’t receive any offers they liked, the Vikes selcted Christian Ponder of Florida State.

Ponder might be the guy they wanted, but this sure seems like a reach. Ponder could’ve been had much later in the first round, but I guess the Vikings just couldn’t get a deal done.

Hasn’t that happened before?

In a notable snub, the Vikings turned their nose up at talented DE DaQuan Bowers. Let’s see how far Bowers falls now.
