Vikings Grab LB,QB In First Round
(New York, NY) -- The Minnesota Vikings used their first pick in the NFL draft on UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr, and then made a trade for a second first-round pick for quarterback Teddy Bridgewater from Louisville. Bridgewater said he was happy to be a Viking upon his selection and predicted he was "going to be the jewel of the draft." He joins veterans Christian Ponder and Matt Cassel, both of whom struggled last season.
