    Even if he didn't declare, we would have to go ahead and make appropriate plans to tank next season right off the bat to be able to get him. I'm making a prediction now that Bridgewater will go to Cleveland in the 2015 draft if doesn't declare this year

    Pfffft unless Bridgewaters stock decreases I cannot see that Browns team slipping to the 1st overall pick. They are a good team and if anything are unlucky not to have won more than they already have.

    Hate his throwing motion???

    If you said this about kaepernick coming out, I'd agree. But there isn't anything wrong with Teddy's. This is grasping for straws to over come the fact he's gonna be a Texan. And has a solid chance at being a good- great QB.

    he'll be very very average. if he stays for his senior year, he'll be exposed against the ACC.

    nope. notice though how after a few games into the season, teddy's hype faded? other QBs put up numbers that were better against much stiffer competition. i just don't see him being anything special in the pros. i might very well be wrong.

    I just did the numbers, and I (in my opinion) went through all 1st round QBs, 2000-2010.

    Went thru and counted which actually had success with their team (especially playoffs.)

    29 1st Rd. QBs taken 2000-2010

    2000 Chad Pennington New York Jets
    2001 Michael Vick Atlanta Falcons
    2002 David Carr Houston Texans
    2002 Joey Harrington Detroit Lions
    2002 Patrick Ramsey Washington Redskins
    2003 Carson Palmer Cincinnati Bengals
    2003 Byron Leftwich Jacksonville Jaguars
    2003 Kyle Boller Baltimore Ravens
    2003 Rex Grossman Chicago Bears
    2004 Eli Manning San Diego Chargers
    2004 Philip Rivers New York Giants
    2004 Ben Roethlisberger Pittsburgh Steelers
    2004 J.P. Losman Buffalo Bills
    2005 Alex Smith San Francisco 49ers
    2005 Aaron Rodgers Green Bay Packers
    2005 Jason Campbell Washington Redskins
    2006 Vince Young Tennessee Titans
    2006 Matt Leinart Arizona Cardinals
    2006 Jay Cutler Denver Broncos
    2007 JaMarcus Russell Oakland Raiders
    2007 Brady Quinn Cleveland Browns
    2008 Matt Ryan Atlanta Falcons
    2008 Joe Flacco Baltimore Ravens
    2009 Matt Stafford Detroit Lions
    2009 Mark Sanchez New York Jets
    2009 Josh Freeman Tampa Bay Buccaneers
    2010 Sam Bradford St. Louis Rams
    2010 Tim Tebow Denver Broncos


    Good long-term franchise QBs on original team:Carson Palmer, Eli Manning, Roethlisberger, Rodgers, Flacco.. and even some of these are questionable. Palmer was good only for a brief time, and led to little actual success. Eli Manning is mindblowing how awful he is sometimes.

    Questionably decent:Ryan, Stafford, Vick, Grossman, Pennington

    Bad: Everyone else.

    5/29 are legitimately good on their original team 17.24 percent

    9/29 have some success.

    20/29 are simply not worth their draft stock. 68.9 percent.


    It sucks how tough it is to find a good one in the bunch.

    Yes. It's hit and miss. And a lot of miss. But I question a bold statement from a random forum member about a QBs throwing motion... When there isn't some obvious issue with it... And it definitely doesn't effect his accuracy so.....
