First, I don't think they are equal in talent. Manziel is a better college player, but Bridgewater's skills translate better to the NFL, IMO.

Second, Andrew Luck was the #1 QB on the board after his redshirt sophomore season and he went back to school for another year. I don't remember his mental fortitude being questioned over that decision. Perhaps Bridgewater is being pressured to return by his coaches or his parents, and so therefore is exploring his options? As for Manziel, knowing what you want and being able to attain it are two different things. Every year the draft is littered with guys who left school early because they were ready for bigger and better things. Just because you want it does not mean that you will get it.

Third, if going to a party at a rival school has any impact on how a prospect is graded, then the grading process is flawed.
The third thing is just my own personal like, not really something that you would grade on.

As a fan, for me, I like Manziel. Not overly passionate about either one though.

I would be more excited to see us draft Jake Matthews because championships are built on the back of offensive linemen.
