Dynasty Impact – Minnesota Vikings select Teddy Bridgewater, QB

bridgewaterDynasty Impact: The Vikings trade up to get their quarterback in Bridgewater. On tape, Bridgewater looked like a top five pick but dropped thanks to a disastrous pro day. That didn’t deter the Vikings where he could step in and start immediately. With Adrian Peterson and Cordarrelle Patterson, he’ll have the tools to be the top quarterback taken in dynasty rookie drafts.

Dynasty Impact – New England Patriots select Dominique Easley, DT

easleyDynasty Impact: Vince Wilfork is getting older and Easley has the hands and motor to contend. Doesn’t have ideal size but can overcome that with his explosiveness. Could be a Geno Atkins-type that draws attention away from ends Rob Ninkovich and Chandler Jones. Those two will benefit more than one can expect from Easley. Also has injury concerns that he will have to overcome.

Dynasty Impact – Philadelphia Eagles select Marcus Smith, LB

smithDynasty Impact: Quick and athletic as a pass rusher off the edge. Could be a Barkevious Mingo-type for the Eagles who learns and gains experience in year one before being let loose in year two. Has good height but could bulk up. Joins an experience (old) team that needs to win now. Dynasty impact should be minimal until he can prove he can get to the quarterback in the NFL.
