Teddy Bridgewater took a little dip in Mel Kiper’s latest big board. He is now ranked in at number 10 on his big board. He was previously ranked in at number 7. Here is the analysis from Kiper on the drop:
He drops a little on my board this week after more time to review, but he’s still almost certain to go in the top-five range if he comes out. Bridgewater is poised and smart and is the guy most regularly making NFL throws with timing and anticipation in this class. He has a good blend of arm strength to drive the ball into tight windows and the sense of when to take some heat off the ball. He’s very catchable. He moves his eyes quickly and often scans the whole field. When he sees a target, he has a quick release, plenty of arm strength and good ball placement.
Bridgewater still is the top quarterback on the big board, but he is dropping out of that top 10 quick. Marqise Lee, Stephon Tuitt and Greg Robinson all surpassed him.
Bridgewater could be taken with the first pick in the draft by the Houston Texans. He has that type of talent and the Texans have that much of a need at the position.
