Default [2014] Bridgwater vs Manziel who would you take?

Simple enough question, say both of these players declare for the 2014 draft and neither suffer any major injuries. Obviously not seeing them play in 2013 will be a large variable in this question but who would you rather have. Just some physical traits for each player:

Johnny Manziel:
Height: 6-1 (ESPN.com)
Weight: 200lbs (ESPN.com)
YDS TD INT
3706 26 9


Teddy Bridgewater
Height: 6-3 (ESPN.com)
Weight: 213lbs (ESPN.com)
YDS TD INT
3718 27 8

Personally, I love watching Johnny Football play his college ball. As Lance Z described him, he's a 6 foot 200 pound whirling dervish of a QB who played behind probably the best O-line in football. On the other hand you have Teddy Bridgewater who toils in the crappy Big East but had a great Sugar Bowl game against a really good Florida Gators defense.

I would probably favor the bigger guy in Bridgewater, but it's not like Manziel doesn't have a bunch of good things in his favor.

I prefer Manziel overall but Bridgewater in our system. I'm of the belief that Manziel would be wasted in Kube's system (Manziel would be a terror as an Eagle). From what I've watched on Bridgewater, I've been impressed with his mobility in the pocket. He steps up to avoid hits and moves around. He's on his feet and doesn't look like a stone (cough Schaub cough). Keeps his eyes downfield. Great in the pocket. I like his arm too, nothing special but he can make the throws. Dude was composed against Florida. I really like him as a prospect. Obviously for both homer and other reasons I think Manziel is a better quarterback simply because he's a game changer in a way few QBs are but I just don't see Manziel in *this* *current* Texans system. We'd have to have a regime change and a offensive scheme overhaul for Manziel to become deadly in our offense.

The cons... I don't know if it was me... but BW's spiral is a little iffy. That ball wobbles a bit too much on the deep throws and even the medium or intermediate ones.

Gee more Manziel love. Color me surprised.

I voted Bridgewater, one more year experience and though Manziel eventually might break the system QB knock on Sumlin QBs and other "air raid" type qbs out of a similar system have fared in the NFL. It just makes me wary. I also think Bridgewater's size gives him an edge.

I've seen more of Manziel but would prefer Bridgewater + he is a bit taller two inches and 20 lbs heavier. Will watch both more next season.

Hey, I evened it out. Bridgewater in this system... and many other systems. Manziel would be great on a few teams and probably not so great on many others.

If we get a guy like Bevell I'm comfortable with Manziel, seeing as he could use him much like Seattle uses Wilson.

Bridge water and it's not close.

Manziel has some work to do in order to be a good nfl qb. I really like his natural ability and spark he brings, but his qb'ing from the pocket is dreadful at times.

^^^^THIS^^^^

Manziel runs and throws on the run well, but it will only take one hit from an NFL LB or Safety to put an end to a season or career. Remember he's not a big man and his pocket presence ain't very good at times.

Actuall JM weighs more than TB. # Gator O turnovers was the real story of Sugar Bowl outcome.

JM outweighs TB by almost 20 lbs.

I like Bevell but McNair has already eliminated Darrell, no HC experience.

3m's Mettenberger/McCarron/Murray over either one of the poll choices. Good thing is you most likely wouldn't have to spend 1-1 on them.

I still don't want either of them at #1. Hell , if we end up with it , I want to move out of #1. Just don't see a single player who's worthy of the distinction of the #1.
Question then - if the Texans have TB rated #5 overall but feel they need a QB would you want them to trade down still?

I'd be much more comfortable taking him after a trade down scenario pending fair compensation. That compensation reduces the risk.
