And manziel being better than wilson and kaepernick? Lol, based on what? 1 guy has been steady at the qb position since day one as a starter and has the 2nd highest qbr in the league behind only peyton manning....the other has already been to a SB. Pretty lofty expectations for a guy who hasnt even mastered passing the ball on the college level.
Bridgewater is 6'3" 205 lbs
vs Manziel 6'0" 212 lbs
so YES TB is a bit frail in comparison, Bridgewater has narrow bony shoulders, could be numerous shoulder injuries in his TB's future. Those weak shoulders are probably why he floats the long ball.
If you're one who stereotypes because your small you will get injured often, the truth is 6'5" QBs get hurt about as often as 6'0" QBs. Unless your name is Bret Farve you're likely to miss games as an NFL QB due to injuries. Manziel is 2" taller than Wilson. Manziel as a freshman in the SEC threw for over 3000 yds and ran for over 1000 yds. Kaepernick was only able to accomplish this his Senior yr at Nevada in the WAC. Manziel also has a quicker release, quicker feet and sees the field better than Kaepernick or Wilson did in college. As a freshman and Soph Kaepernick was only able to complete 54% of his passes, Wilson 58%, Manziel over 70%.
