Hi, I'm a huge Vikings fan and since the Vikings just drafted your former QB Christian Ponder, I was wondering if you guys should tell me a bit more about him. Not many Vikings fans are too happy about the pick, labeling it as a reach. I personally think Ponder is the best QB in the draft and don't understand the negativity towards the pick. I just had a few questions.
Was the talent around Ponder in Florida State any good?
Are injury concerns about Ponder valid?
What are Ponder's biggest weaknesses and biggest strengths?
All in all, I'm the minority as far as Vikings fans go in my liking of Ponder. I see him as having no major weaknesses. He has mobility, accuracy, maturity, intelligence, and ran a pro style offense in FSU. The backlash about Ponder is more about where he was picked rather than his actual skill level. I think he is a long term solution behind center for the Minnesota Vikings and I hope all of you FSU fans become Vikings fans too!
Thanks a lot.
