The purpose of this post is to test how many people really like Jimmy Garoppolo and Taj Boyd. This is a hypothetical scenario that is very possible and a worst case scenario for Vikings fans. You play the GM and tell us what to do.
With the first round you the GM decided after reading the Daily Norseman and receiving death threats if you traded up, to stay with your #8 draft position. You create your draft board and as your pick rolls around this is what has happened. Bridgewater, Manziel, Bortles, Clowney, Matthews, Mosley, Mack are all off the board. In addition, Cleveland, Oakland, and Tampa Bay did not draft a QB. St. Louis traded out to another team who selected a QB in a surprise move. In your reply, who do you draft in the 8 spot.
Later in the first round, remember Cleveland did not take a QB, the number 25 pick is up and the team is on the phone with you. Here is your scenario. They are offering you a trade involving your second round pick and one of your thirds for the 25 pick. You have discovered rumors leading you to believe that if you stay at your position in the second round both Garoppolo and Boyd will be off the board. Moreover, Mettenberger will be gone if you wait until the third to take a QB.
Also, for the purpose of this post Cassel has opted out of his deal and signed a new deal with a new team. The only QB on your roster is Ponder.
Also, you have called every other team between you and your spot and have not worked out a trade yet.
