5 Creative Moves the Minnesota Vikings Can Pull on Draft Day

Seemingly the consensus third quarterback in the draft, Brett Hundley could be an intriguing option for Minnesota if they really want to go sideways.
Vikings fans should be optimistic and excited about Bridgewater. He had the second-lowest number of pass attempts that "should have" led to an interception, per Bleacher Report's Cian Fahey, and his yards-per-attempt (a much more stable predictor of quarterback success) ranked 15th in the NFL as a rookie, despite a shaky start.

All the signs are that he'll be a franchise quarterback for the Vikings.

But it's good to have insurance, and if he somehow regresses or gets injured (or even if he simply doesn't continue to develop), it may be good to have a high-level developmental quarterback to turn the offense over to.
