NFL Draft

No Gabbert, Vikes Select Chistian Ponder at #12

April 28, 2011 by Nick in NFL Draft

With Gabbert being taken just two picks before the Vikings pick and Tennessee shocking people with the selection of Locker. The Minnesota Vikings selected Christian Ponder.

 

 

 

 

Nicks Analysis:  This was a huge reach but the Vikings had to take a QB.  They should have traded down and taken Ponder later on.  This was a desperate pick which is unfortunate with Prince still on the board.  Hopefully Ponder can be the Vikings long term solution to their QB problems.
