Default Re: Teddy Bridgewater

To me, the Geno Smith comparison seems to be just a physical comparison (size, athletic ability, etc.) and not a comparison between skill-sets or playing style.

Yeah, I don't see it, but to each his own. I'm not going to spend hours debating it with people who feel the comparison is a solid one.

Many accredited people.

I think it's the best one I've seen myself. Many QBs avoid the sack then first instinct is to take off and run until they're about to get hit or try to get to the chains.

ARod and TB both step up in the pocket, buy time with their feet, but are rarely looking to run. They always keep their eyes down the field attempting to get the ball into the hands of their play makers.

This IMO, is one of the most valuable skills that I look for in a QB that is very difficult to teach. It's a measured and controlled response to a fight or flight response, which of everything a QB does, this would have to be the hardest to teach.

Rodgers is a polished pro QB and had that quality in college, which it why is was so surprising to see him fall. TB is a project with perceived upside that may or may not pan out. Night and day in my opinion.

TB isn't a project like you think he is, IMO. He displays that same polish, with perhaps more scrutiny because the AAC is not the PAC-12. Project QB is a label that applies more to guys like Derek Carr or Johnny Manziel than TB, who I believe to be the most pro-ready QB prospect in this class, followed by McCarron (who I believe will be decidedly the definition of average).

Yeah, of the reviews of TB I have read the split has been about 100 most pro-ready v. 0 project.

That could just as easily describe Rothlisberger, Romo, Brees, & yup... Matt Schaub. All of them very different from one another.

Then why is Manziel projected to go before TB on every board practically now?

No one will until they take the field in the pros, but I wouldn't draft him.

Assuming you mean "mock" instead of "board", I'd still like you to prove this almost certain false statement.

Bridgewater doesn't come close to Rodgers with velocity , he has a tendency to throw a lot of softballs and doesn't have near the arm strength. Seems to me people have watched a few highlights and made up their minds using that small portion of information ....
