The dream has died for the six Vikings fans who still held out hope that Cam Newton would somehow wind up in Minnesota this year. The Panthers did what every rational human expected and drafted Newton #1 overall, kicking off the 2011 NFL Draft in predictable fashion.
One QB down, several to go. Blaine Gabbert is expected to be the next QB off the board, probably at the #7 pick, which belongs to the 49ers.
If Gabbert somehow lasts past 7…the game may be afoot.
