They had 2 options:
1. Reach for Ponder or Dalton (obviously chose wrong one here).

Or 2. Pick Fairley/Amukumara/whoever and hope Ponder/Dalton/Kaepernick fell to their 2nd round pick (which none did, although who knows if Ponder would've. Rumors say the Redskins woulda took Ponder at like 16.) And if they didn't we wouldn't have Rudolph.

My opinion was always that the Vikings wanted Jake Locker and when Tennessee took him they panicked. Giving how poorly Childress left the QB position and everyone tired of stop gaps they had no choice but to reach for a QB, it just happened they chose the wrong one/he doesn't look like he'll pan out.
