He is a great example for other highly ranked highschool QBs that you don't need to go to a big name football school to be a very high draft pick.

However, if you're a highly ranked HS QB, you should still probably go to a big name football school. Let's not pretend that going to Louisville is a move that is likely to work out.

Yeah I said it.
Saying he is going before Clowney isn't a stretch. I've been saying it since the day after he 2013 draft.

I've been saying it since last year. Of course it's all going to depend on which team picks though.

If you don't have a franchise QB, you take one...and so far Teddy has looked the part. He will be more influential on the team that drafts him than Clowney would be....IF he doesn't turn out to be a bust, which I do not think he will be.

There is only one way Bridgewater doesn't go first. If Andrew Luck tears an ACL this week and the Colts finish with only 1 or 2 wins.

I'm not sure why but I'm not really a fan. I'm wishing by draft day Boyd and Mariota(IF he declares), pass him up. He'll probably end up in Jax.

I like Boyd a lot, too, and have a feeling Mariota's going to be the big riser this year.

I really can't say whether or not this guy is an elite prospect until I see him play against some real competition, which might not happen till his bowl game. I mean, how can you really make comparisons off what you have currently seen this year? He has enough time to bake a cake in the pocket before he makes a decision.

Bridgwater played well against good defenses last year. Rutgers, UNC, and the Florida game come to mind.

To me there's no question he's an elite prospect and should go #1 overall next year. It's pretty hard to find bad things to say about him but I think a couple reasonable concerns can be brought up.

First of all there's the level of competition factor that everyone brings up. This can't be ignored but at the same time there's not much he can do about it. He has played well against the good defenses he's faced, with Florida last year being the best example, but you would like to see how he plays against tough teams on a weekly basis. I don't believe you can throw out all of the tape of him against bad teams though as he still shows elite skills even if he has a lot of time to throw.

The other weakness I found is his deep ball accuracy. The guy is a surgeon when it comes to throwing crossing patterns and does a great job of leading receivers bit struggles when throwing vertical routes. It has nothing to do with his arm strength, which is more than adequate and seems to be even better this season, but he struggles to drop passes in over defenders in these situations. If you watch the Florida game the majority of his incompletions came in these situations. I haven't watched enough of him this year to see if this has improved but either way it's correctable at the next level.

While he isn't perfect it's clear he has elite intangibles, great pocket awareness, the athleticism to extend plays, great arm strength, and great ball placement on timing patterns. I'm not sure what else you're really looking for in a #1 Qb and in my opinion he's head and shoulders above the rest of the QB class.

Level of competition is not the major issue that fans want it to be with QB prospects. Last year's Super Bowl QBs played at Delaware and Nevada. There's way more to a QB than the college he played at.

I would argue if you want to be a successful NFL qb you are more likely to pan out if you go to a mid level school where you will be relied on to carry the team.

If you suck and just want to get drafted and be out of the NFL after 3 years sure go to USC or ND
