I didn`t say I don`t want him here. I know why scouts are dropping him, and I still believe in his gametape and most of all I still believe in his football intelligence and drive. And I´ve seen that he has the legs and the accuracy, except for deep balls. I wouldn´t be mad if we take him first overall - actually I´d be excited. I just don`t think his value matches up with the first pick. I mean, there is a legitimate change that he could fall to the second round - that`s not a guy I would spend a first pick on. But that`s still the guy I´d love to have on our team!

Bridgewater’s agent responds to report of “shaky” workouts
Quote:
For starters, McGuire says that Bridgewater has had only one private workout. Which necessarily contradicts the notion that Bridgewater has had shaky workouts.

“I have a tremendous amount of respect for journalists who work in this new age of media,” McGuire said via email. “While I am certain this statement wasn’t intended to be misleading, it is my duty to remove and eliminate any doubt. Teddy has visited multiple teams with more workouts and visits coming in the near future. The assessment we received from the one workout was ‘simply amazing and sharp,’ and we expect nothing short or less than stellar in the upcoming workouts in the very near future.”

McGuire said another workout will happen today, which will be Bridgewater’s second. More workouts will come. And whatever teams say on or off the record about the prviate workouts can’t be trusted. Too much is riding on the ability of teams to get the guys they want in the draft. Jobs, in some cases, are riding on the way the draft dominoes fall.

I think he was the best dressed of all of them. Suit, with no tie (I don't know if he had the tie on during the interview though).

Johnny at least had a polo.

McCarron & Bortles, I thought, way too casual.

I know they're football players, but they're QBs..... quasi~management. I like the professional look.

We aren't interested in him.

In his pro day and his private workouts so far he has shown nothing.

His game tape was average to begin with.

He may be this years Geno Smith ...

Are you comparing their playing styles or are you just saying that he's going to fall out of the 1st round a la Smith?

Say..... all you guys who don't want to draft Bridgewater with a top five pick (this includes myself).


If he were to go on to become a franchise QB & the guy you'd rather have, with a lower pick... not you guys who want Manziel or Bortles with a top 5 pick.. doesn't.

Say if you're a Garopollo guy, or a Murray, or whoever it is you want to take outside of the 1st round, let's say he turns into a Henne or Fitzpatrick, or a Whitehurst; good, but not good enough to be a starter.

How would you feel if Bridgewater goes on to become a franchise guy & Garoppolo/Murray/Savage becomes a journeyman back up?

Hey. Nobody's perfect.

But seriously, OF the QBs, I expect Bridgewater to end up as a mid-level starter... stats-wise. He's the kind of guy that can direct your team and manage the game. In the right situation, he can probably win some Super Bowls but he's probably NOT going to get in that right situation.

I expect Bortles to have a Boller type of career. I expect him to get the opportunity but just not convert it into something great.

For the guys in the later rounds, I expect even less... but I'm going to hope for more because that's who I expect us to draft this season.

If a QB comes out of this draft and turns into a great QB, I'll admit I was wrong... probably. I'm still not close to admitting that Flacco or Eli are particularly good QBs.

I think a QB from this draft will have a great career. But I won't pretend to believe I know which guy that will be. I think McCarron & Murray are most likely. I think they've got all the intangibles, the pedigree, & have shown the consistency on the biggest stages.

But Manziel's got star power. If he can continue what he's done in the NCAA, he's going to be something else, but he's going to need the right support system (coaches, defense, etc...) & for him, that system is more narrowly defined.

I like Bridgewater, but I don't see the big time ego, the arrogance you see in a Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, John Elway, or even the Jim Kelly, Donavan McNabbs, & Phillip Rivers.

I see the tools with Bortles, but two years.... who knows what year three is going to look like. Same with Savage, except he's only got one year.. but I really like the way he zings it outside the hash marks.

If it ends up being Bridgewater, it's going to hurt worse. "Everybody" is telling us it's going to be him. If the Texans pick him, I can live with it, but if another team gets him & our guy is out of the league in 6 years or so, I'll admit I was wrong, but like I said, it will really hurt.

Of those considered to be the top three, I think he has the potential to fall the most.

Has shown nothing since college. Is it the pressure? Is he just over-rated?

We will see, I think it is the later. Never thought he was what everyone was saying.

Watch his games and you can shoot all kinds of holes in his perceived talent.
