Buffalo wanted Ponder in 1st round

Former NFL QB Jim Miller interviewed by USA Today on the draft's top QB picks.  This might quiet a few more of those 'Ponder was a reach' complaints:

Miller thinks Vikings coach Leslie Frazier is right that Ponder will have a chance to start right away because of all of the weapons Minnesota has to support him.

Frazier said the Vikings got their Matt Ryan, Joe Flacco and Mark Sanchez in Ponder, who completed 61.8% of his passes at Florida State.

"I know the Buffalo Bills were definitely going to trade up into the first round to get Ponder," Miller said.

"There were some other teams that liked him (because) he's probably the most pro-ready of this group.

"I'll take Leslie Frazier at his word that they expect Ponder to start Week 1.

"They have a good running back in Adrian Peterson and Pro Bowl wide receivers. It tells me they plan on re-signing (free agent) Sidney Rice.

"It's not like this guy is going to be asked to do everything. I don't think it's ideal for any of these rookies to play right away.

"But he is a guy who is capable of doing it given the guys around him."
