I was enamored with Mariota last year, but then I watched more game tape and came to the same conclusion you did. We need someone who will stay in the pocket a bit longer.
I liked Bridgewater a lot last year, but haven't watched him much this year cause I figure he's a top pick and we won't trade up that far. I wish he was playing some tougher competition this year as well.
