    LZ mentioned on Twitter yesterday that he felt Manziel would have a better career than Teddy; I'll be interested to hear that analysis.

    Both are really good QBs. Johnny may wow the crowd, but Teddy's work is so much cleaner looking. It would be a very, very bold move if the Texans were to pick Manziel over TB. I just don't see it with this organization. Teddy is squeaky clean. He just needs some time in the gym. I'll support and trust whom ever O'Brien rolls with. I just don't see any logic skipping Teddy unless some crazy trade which is HIGHLY fkn doubtful. A lot of people here need to realize that.

    Click on his name and it brings up a Breakdown page with pros/cons and film study.

    Also click on the big Notes and Commentary button at the top.

    Pretty darned comprehensive tool, imo.

    I've read their analysis, I'm just surprised anyone would rate Manziel over Bridgewater as a prospect, and I like Manziel.

    Reading Manziel and Brdgewater's pros and cons, not sure how they conclude Manziel is better suited to QB in the NFL.

    Now you will be the one accused of irrational JFF hate. (Welcome to the club. I love me some JFF, but think Bridgewater will be the better pro. So I'm a hater.)

    We'll all get to see what actually happens. Sometimes its not always the best prospect who develops into the better pro. Has a lot to do with coaching, scheme, how hard he works & what cannot be measured.... his heart:heart:

    I think Manziel has greater potential than Bridgewater (this is not a knock on Teddy at all; I just see his ceiling as Matt Ryan with a better arm, while Manziel could become Tarkenton), but Bridgewater is more deserving of the #1 pick. I'd love to grab Bridgewater at #1 or trade down for Manziel at #4.

    There's a guy that plays for the Seahawks that could answer that question for you.

    In the Bortles thread LZ says Texans take Bortles #1 overall and here he is listed as 13th best prospect? Is LZ fishing for hits again by blatantly playing both sides? Something doesn't add up.

    I know you don't like LZ but that's what he said this morning regarding some discussions he's had with a few scouts including somebody in the Bears org.

    There's a difference between saying who they will pick, and who you would pick.

    The Bortles thread was started in Nov. LZ's last post on this board was in Oct.

    I think he meant my post in the Bortles thread regarding LZ's statement on his show this morning.

    Who called you a hater?

    Bridgewater isn't some can't miss prospect. He is more pro ready than Manziel, but all these highlight gifs people kept posting of Bridgewater, Manziel has done those exact same plays. i think he has the most potential. I wouldn't take either QB first overall, only Clowney. Trading back a few spots and grabbing him would be best.
