Kacie McDonnell From Villanova U is Christen Ponder’s Girlfriend (Pics)

Getting drafted in the first round, despite most experts projecting you as nothing more that a second round pick and having a hot girlfriend with an incredible body to celebrate the event with?  Yes, things certainly are looking good for Christen Ponder these days.

With a solid defensive unit and Adrian Peterson penciled in at the running back position, the former Florida State quarterback will be set up with the opportunity to someday bring the Lombardi Trophy to Minnesota, but for now Vikings fans will have to settle for another trophy that Ponder is set to bring to their city – his girlfriend, Kacie McDonnell, from Villanova.

I was as shocked as anyone when I heard the Vikings had taken Ponder with the 12th overall pick yesterday.  We all knew they needed a quarterback, but I guess they figured with Ponder they would get that, and upgrade their sex appeal in the stands at the same time.

Kacie McDonnell should look great on FOX’s cameras while she watches her man line up under center for the purple and gold.  The images below should have you thinking the same thing.
