Eden Prairie, MN - It's beginning to become Spielman's M.O. but the Minnesota Vikings did it again and traded back into the end of the first round to select quarterback Teddy Bridgewater with the 32nd pick.

BIO: Second Team All-American Athletic Conference selection in 2013 ... Big East Offensive Player of the Year in 2012 ... Big East Rookie of the Year and Freshman All-American in 2011 ... Threw for 3,970 yards as a junior with 31 TDs (a single-season school record) paired with just four INTs ... Completed 68.4 percent of his passes during three-year career with 9,817 yards, 72 TDs and 24 INTs ... Accustomed to a pro-style offense, reading his progressions and throwing timed, anticipated passes ... Polished mechanics both in terms of footwork and delivery ... Showed toughness by playing through injuries during his career ... Great head on his shoulders ... Steps up under pressure and almost always makes the right decisions ... Mature and passionate about the game ... While accurate, does not possess elite arm strength ... High completion percentage a result of pass-heavy offense with a lot of low-risk short throws ... Not a great athlete, has trouble eluding pressure ... Lean body that could be susceptible to injuries ... Stock trending downward after an underwhelming performance during his pro day workout.
