Johnny Manziel, Teddy Bridgewater on Vikings' radar

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday that Johnny Manziel is still a possibility for the Vikes at No. 8 overall.

Coaches, scouts and evaluators are meeting later this afternoon with the owners, per Rapoport, to discuss what they will do if the Texas A&M star is still on the board.

Reporting from team headquarters at Winter Park, NFL Media's Albert Breer adds that Minnesota also likes Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater, but probably not enough to pull the trigger in the No. 8 draft slot.
