I don't think Jesus is going to help you, not dense, I unlike others understand comments made are after the fact and not before. However it is clear that some have difficulty deciphering and understanding the before and after comments.....and if you watch the video in it's entirety then you will know there is much more to it than the bits and pieces mag article.

Savage: Teddy Bridgewater has critical pro day ahead of him
Quote:
"That will be almost required at his pro day, that he finishes the rest of the (combine) workout," [Browns GM Phil] Savage said. "Every player basically has what I call an inventory sheet. And these teams are looking to fill in every blank on that sheet. Whether it's character questions (answered) through the platform of an interview, the 40-yard dash, the 20-yard shuttle, whatever. They want you to fill out a full resume. Bridgewater will end up running the 40 and doing the other drills he missed, then do his (throwing) workout."
...

"What happens if he strains his hamstring doing the 40? Now that's going to impact the rest of his workout. So you are putting all your eggs in one basket."

Default Re: Teddy Bridgewater

NFL Films' Greg Cosell stated on the Ross Tucker Podcast that he's heard Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater's weight dropped to 188 pounds late in the 2013 college season.
Quote:
Cosell is very plugged-in around the NFL, so we don't doubt this for a second. "He bulked up to 214 for the Combine," said Cosell. "I've spoken to people who said that late in the year at Louisville, he weighed 188." On tape, Cosell was impressed with Bridgewater's comfort in the pocket and coverage reading, but concerned about his "very slight" build and average arm strength. "He doesn't really drive the ball, Bridgewater," Cosell stated. "He's a bit of a short-armer."

Thanks for that. I am by no means an expert, but the team should be able to keep the weight in the right spot, right? Just keeping an eye on him that he is training and eating right. So, with the weight being alright right now, it shouldn`t be a problem, should it?

I know there are injury concerns and they are valid - but as far as I know Bridgewater was never severly injured so far. And his playing style isn`t really dangerous. He gets the ball out quickly, rarely scrambles and has a great feel and great feet in the pocket. This is not like RG3 or Manziell who make a living on the run.

And the lacking arm strength - as far as I´ve read he isn`t lacking arm strength, he just doesn`t use it right. He floats the ball too often and lacks accuracy on deep balls sometimes. But he has the strength to zip the ball and throw it 60 yards deep (as seen on one of the vids posted one page before). To me, this seems more like a coaching thing, than like a lack of physique thing.

Again, I am far from being an expert - but right now it seems like scouts and coaches are more in love with physical traits and thinking, that the mental aspect can be coached. We´ve seen this approach houndreds of times and it usually fails. It is hard to teach a guy to go through his reads quickly and it is hard to teach a guy how NFL defenses work. If you take a raw player, the speed of the game will kill him the first 2 seasons - and if you´re lucky, then he learns enough to become productive after that.

Wilson dropped because of his lacking physique, so did Rodgers and Brees. Despite them having everything you need to have in the head, a great drive and competitiveness and decent technique.

To me, Bridgewater looks like a guy that really gets football and is living, breathing and eating football. He is also the most accurate guy and has the best feet in the pocket. And he is the only college QB that did all the reads himself at the line of scrimmage and basically worked as an offensive coordinator. All that while being tall enough for it not being called a weakness and "heavy" enough to prove, that he can fill out his body and protect himself. And don`t forget, QBs in the NFL make their living with 5-15 yards passes - Bridgewater excelled at those.

I really don`t understand, why he seems to be dropping in rankings and mock drafts right now. Him not participating in combine drills is the most logical answer, but lots of high profile QBs do that. It´ll be interesting how his proday will affect his draft stock. I truly believe he will do anything the scouts ask him to do and excell.

He talked to kirwan and miller at thr combine. He said he was 222 before he had the overbite fixed. After that, he dropped weight and couldnt put it back on. Jay cutler dropped alot of weight until he found out hevwas diabetic.
