Bortles isnít turnover prone but the interceptions IMO are the only thing holding him back from going first overall. Thatís a lofty projection, but all the tools are there.
I think Bortles has the size, but not enough flash to compensate for his other shortcomings.
Manziel has the flash, but not the size to compensate for his shortcomings.
Bridgewater has enough size & flash to keep him in the conversation, but - imo - not enough.
Right now, Bridgewater is the best choice, if you're going to spend a 1-1 on a QB that's lacking quite a bit from other QBs who were acquired with the 1-1, then he's the best choice.
If he weighs in at 215lbs, He makes up a big part of that gap. 210lbs..... close enough.
AT the same time, if Bortles has an amazing Combine, decides to throw & all that..... he could very easily become the best choice.
I like Manziel, a lot. There's just no way I'll risk a top 10 pick on him. Just can't do it, unless this draft is extremely void of talent.
