Currently ranked third on Rory’s big board, Bridgewater has seen heard every type of criticism leading up to this draft. The closer the draft became, the more reports surfaced questioning Bridgewater’s skills. In my eyes he is certainly the most polished QB in this class, but that does not always lead to being drafted early ; ie JaMarcus Russell over Brady Quinn in 2007.

Through all these different reports I get the sense that NFL teams might not like Bridgewater as much as us in the media perceived them to. At this point I think Teddy might have to wait a little while for his named to be called tonight. Questions about his arm and his average pro day have hurt his draft stock. Bridgewater could be looking at falling all the way to the late first round-early second round.
