I'm pretty certain of those 4, only Kiper and Jeremiah have Manziel going before Teddy. They still have TB higher on their boards, so your statement is completely baseless. Only paying attention to ESPN and NFLN can really paint a picture different than reality, so it's understandable.

Default Re: Teddy Bridgewater

Sorry Mel, but no way am I paying to subscribe to BSPN to see his "detailed" mock on how we take Manziel first and Teddy will fall all the way to number 8. I don't have a problem with us taking Manziel, just doubt Teddy will fall that low. If the Vikes really want him they will trade up. Browns taking Bortles? I can see that happening.

Go watch some of his highlights from the past year or two. An example here. He's been trained to STOP holding the ball that high. He holds the ball much lower, much closer to the way Bridgewater holds it now.

I don't think Bridgewater holding the ball low is a bad thing. I think it's a sign that he's studied guys like Rodgers and he's learned from it.
This...already been discussed earlier in this thread...don't understand why folks are still harping on how he holds the ball..Noone in the NFL holds it like that..it's simply a teaching tool to encourage throwing the ball over the shoulder.

I don't see a more recent McShay Mock, but here he has Teddy going number 1. Brooks also has Teddy over Manziel. Care to share your links?

lol, nice try bro. I see that you've already had several people throw a bunch of links at you, so I won't bother.

You think TB looks like Matt Schaub in the pocket? C'mon bro, I like a lot of what you have to say, don't become that guy.

There is a reason I never responded to KingTexan. You all that embarked on that journey have chosen to engage in a back and forth argument with a child, good luck to you all.

This thread has completely become a thread where 2 sides have drawn a line in the sand and just keep throwing rocks back and forth. I can't lie though, I keep coming back.

Because when you reach for things, you often find yourself saying the same things twice.

Good post & excellent link..Pretty much confirms what i see from all of these prospects down to a tee. he was a little to effusive with his praise...Obviously TB will have his growing pains, but it's pretty clear who's the best qb of this crop..& i can't see how people see that it's even remotely close between TB, Manziel & Bortles.

He's pretty convincing. If the Texans see it the same way there is no way they would consider trading the pick or taking someone like Clowney over Bridgewater.

Just bear in mind he had Matt Barkley at #7 and Geno Smith at #12 overall pre-combine last year. Link

Mock drafts are a pretty big gamble. His X's and O's sounded pretty impressive. Was there something you disagreed with him on in the interview?

Good point.

With any sort of Mock or anything, you've got to be clear on the purpose of it. You can create it trying to figure out which team is going to draft which player, you can create it trying to figure out who you think each team SHOULD pick, you can create it by saying you think these guys are the best guys.

That BRB Big Board was his assessment of how good players were and not where he thought they would or should go. The only way to judge this is going to be after a few years to see if the players at the top of his board end up being good players or not and whether Matt Barkley ends up being the best QB out of last year's draft.

I mean, after a single season, Colin Kaepernick had thrown a grand total of 5 passes and I don't think anyone expected him to get the job away from Alex Smith.

7. Matt Barkley, USC - Barkley might not be physically gifted like Cam Newton or Robert Griffin III, but his football IQ, pocket presence, and intangibles are through the roof. As a pure pocket passer, he could be just as good as recent first overall picks Andrew Luck and Matthew Stafford.
Says same about "Rain Man" Bridgewater.
