The Vikings ended the first round of the NFL draft with a flourish, making a trade to get quarterback Teddy Bridgewater of Louisville with the 32nd and final pick.

The Vikings traded their second round pick (No. 40) and a fourth rounder (No. 108) to Super Bowl champion Seattle for the pick.

Earlier reports had the Vikings trying to get a first-round pick to nab Johnny Manziel, who went 22nd overall to Cleveland.
