LSU QB Zach Mettenberger dined with four Vikings officials following his Wednesday Pro Day. A league source told beat writer Ben Goessling that OC Norv Turner was "calling out routes" he wanted Mettenberger to throw by the end of his workout. Per Goessling, the Vikings are "believed to be high on Mettenberger," who is a classic, big-armed pocket passer in the Troy Aikman-Philip Rivers mold. Turner was Aikman's coordinator in Dallas, and Rivers' head coach in San Diego.

Good to see all this love for Zach. I bet a team trades up into the bottom of the first round and grabs him before those teams at the top of the second round can draft him
Dude on CBS radio this morning saying Texans are better off with Clowney in 1st and Mett in 2nd rather than JFF in 1st and whatever DE in 2nd.... fwiw
I just don't see why anyone would concider drafting Manziel higher than the 4th round to begin with. Maybe it's because LSU dominated him twice, but I've never been impressed with him at all. I just don't see that circus act working well in the NFL at all. You can't always just run around and throw jump balls to Evans in triple coverage all day. He will be in Arena football in 5 years.
