Not yet, though he did an in-depth analysis of Clowney's 2013 game against Tennessee which is in the appropriate thread.

If he's 6ft 3in in spikes that's adequate height for the position regardless of his OL playing barefoot or in spikes. Guys like Wilson and Brees seem to get by and they're shorter than 6ft 1in.

I don't know if Teddy is that short, but part of Brees and Wilson's success is using the oline to create passing lanes so the height isn't a huge issue, though I will say that I always thought it was funny to see people, during the draft, worry about Wilson's ability to see over his linemen when Wisconsin had averaged out as tallest oline that year.

Keenum and Manziel listed at 6 ft 1 in. Elway and Moon check in at 6ft 3in, Montana 6ft 2in.

I'm not totally discounting height, but as you can see, and noted, lacking prototypical height can be overcome.

By the way: Ryan Leaf 6ft 5in, JaMarcus Russell 6ft 6in. Prototypical height helped their draft value, but didn't cement their franchise QB status or NFL success.

Default Re: Teddy Bridgewater

I think he'll check in at a little over 6'2 and probably around 215 lbs. I think he played at about 195-200 this year, but the biggest criticism on him right now is size so you can bet his agent has him working with someone right now to put weight on.

I also don't believe that hand size is an issue with him. The guy wears gloves. So what. Peyton wore gloves last week and Brady tends to wear gloves an awful lot. Wearing gloves is not an indication of small hands. It's all just speculation at this point.

The real question, is size&wieght. In that picture, he looks pretty stout. 6'1" 205ish...... or 6'3" 215ish

The problem, for me is if he's 6'3" 205

Before Michael Vick was drafted some people were worried about his size. With his style of play, they didn't feel like he would be able to play a full season.

That's my concern with Bridgewater. Knowing what you know now, would you have drafted Vick with the #1 overall?

I know his playing style is different, but he was a solid 215. If Bridgewater measures 6'3" 205, or 210..... even sitting in the pocket I find it hard to see him playing 16 games a year in the big boys league.

Think David Carr, how many times he got hit. Dude kept getting back up, but that kind of toughness is rare. And three years in, he couldn't look downfield any more.

I'm not sure you want to mess around that much with his weight, it could affect his fluidity. Core strength, yes, ability to improve on his long ball, yes, but adding weight just to add it on to make him seem more prototypical an exercise wasted. I'm more interested in his forty compared to Manziel who we know is fast

i'd think i'd be kinda pointless to train for the combine/proday/personal workouts with teams, with an NCAA regulation size ball instead of an NFL one.

Never thought I'd see the day when a QB's 40 would be more important than his size.


Even Bridgewater's staunchest defender knows his effectiveness in the pocket is more important than what he can do outside the pocket; now & in the future. The ability to make plays outside the pocket is a plus & it's becoming more & more important, But I rarely ever want to see the guy cross the LOS.

I think the size stuff is overblown. I watched him quite a bit and I don't ever thinking to myself he looked small.

If it all plays out where he's the pick and the main concern with our QB is his SIZE coming out of COLLEGE, I'd say we're in good shape.

which is what Manziel does far more than Bridgewater. what I want to dispel is this notion that Teddy can't create outside the pocket when he has to with his legs while going through his progressions on the run. Face it, competition is the fuel of athletes we feed on. Luck does this a lot & crosses the line, only difference is he's a bigger guy

Irrelevant? Yes.

Well you better get used to it. It's the way things are now. The rules are already there to protect the QB outside the pocket. I want a guy capable of making plays outside when things breakdown but smart enough to use the rules in his favor.
