If he does turnout to be a composition of Montana, Brady, Roethlisberger and Luck and you pass on him it will be the biggest blunder in franchise history. Even worse is if Jacksonville drafts Bortles and he is the 2nd coming of Roethlisberger and Luck, what a headache for the Texans facing that and Andrew Luck 4 times a year. GOOD GRIEF!!!!
Yeah, but the same could be said about Manziel and Bridgewater. Manziel could be a whole new kind of star that wins several MVPs in a row - Bridgewater could have Mannings football IQ, decision making and accuracy inside 20 yards. Right now we don`t know if any of these QBs turn out good. The question is: who do you wanna take a chance on, and at what draft position are you comfortable with that.
Since several mock drafts have both Bridgewater and Manziel dropping (others have Bortles dropping), I guess IŽd take bpa with #1 (Clowney or Robinson for me) and trade back up to get, whoever is left on the board late in the first. But my favorite guy out of the 3 is Bridgewater.
