QBs are drafted higher because they play the most important position. A very good QB is the hardest player to find. Taking a chance on a QB makes more sense than taking a chance on a LB or a RB. I think you've said yourself that finding a Tom Brady in the 6th round is an anomaly. They won't just fall in your lap.

It's rare that a QB prospect comes into the NFL without pimples. Once every 15 or 20 years? If you need a QB, you're going to have to take a chance. If you don't, another team will. Nearly every year, a good to very good QB comes out of the draft. The Texans need to do everything they can to find that guy.

Default Re: Teddy Bridgewater

Although I have cooled off on Teddy some in recent weeks, this nonsense about his weight fluctuation is stupid. He went from 214 to 208. For a grown man that is really not that significant of a flux. My weight can fluctuate 3-4 pounds in a single day due to hydration, last meal time, and latest bowl movement at time of weighing.

Obviously we all knew he would be as heavy as he could be at the combine, so a 6 pound drop is really insignificant. Teddy isn't a big guy, we have known that from the get go. Trying to make it seem like there is a difference in him playing at 208 or 214 is just as ridiculous as the butt smooching the so called "Teddy fanatics" do.

Regarding his actual performance at his pro day, he didn't look at his best no doubt. However, since Bridgewater's stock has been slowly declining on the last month and a half, I wouldn't expect the media to give him glowing review anyways unless he would have just flat out killed it.

This is how it goes every year; guys who stock has been on the decline almost always get average to poor reviews from pundits about their Pro Days...and guys who's stock has been on the up and up almost always get praised. This is because the media just wants to further validate the perception they have been spreading as of late.

you need to pay attention to every detail. have you seen or watched him? in College he played under 200 almost 6-3. the combine he looked puffy, bloated, did not do much but what he did was less than impressive. he just has a narrow frame, one that will be difficult to add weight or core strength going against the big boys. its injury concern mostly, something you have to insure as your franchise investment.

No, I haven't actually seen him, he's an asian guy right?

We have no idea what weight he played at during college, every needs to stop pretending they do.

He looked puffy? Bloated? Haha what, please show me a picture of this puffy little teddy bear, because everything I saw he looked pretty damn lean like he always has.

Like I said, we know he is an undersized QB and we have known that forever...yet people still want to try and make it relevant that he happened to be just a tiny tiny bit more undersized than he was a couple weeks ago.

Still, Teddy is no longer my #1 QB, a good friend of mine who had a brief stint in the NFL and played 4 years at A&M opened my eyes to a couple things on Teddy recently that changed my mind.

There is Teddys pro day. the camera guy was kind of crappy but you see a lot. I think he started off a little shaky but really got into rhythm after a few minutes. He is at best a 50% accuracy guy when throwing deep. So thats def. a weakness, but he does so many other things well. Gonna be a tough choice.

Teddy Bridgewater moves past shaky pro day, calls himself a ‘servant leader’
Quote:
“The biggest reason I feel is I’m a servant leader,” he said. “I’m someone who wants to make everyone else around me better people, better players with nothing in return. I’m not looking for any recognition or anything like that. I’m a team player, someone that’s willing to go the extra mile, willing to come in early and go the opposite way. Not go in that locker room and try to win guys over but win guys over by going in that film room and that offensive room and learning the playbook right away, breaking down film, showing the guys that I understand what’s going on.

“Once guys see that you know your job, you know what you’re supposed to do, you’re responsible, then they’ll begin to trust you more. I feel that I have that capability. From a playing side, I feel that I’m an accurate passer, I’m smart with the football, I’m a winner. The past three years I was able to win I believe 30 games and I’ve made progress each year. Each year I’m just on a mission to become better and better.”

Once teams meet with Bridgewater, they’ll see it...

Just curious,but do you think its more important to impress the organization at the pro day or the private workout? I know from my conversations with phil savage,pat kirwan,and others at the senior bowl, pro days are less than 10% of the evaluations. The combine is more important for the medicals than anything else.

Lol because we all know a player can only be evaluated solely on their combine and pro day.
