Raiders Only Have Eyes For Teddy Bridgewater

The Oakland Raiders are in need of a quarterback still, but they are only interested in one of the quarterbacks that are projected to be drafted in the first round. The Raiders sit with the 5th pick in the draft and would need for their quarterback to fall to them in that spot.

The quarterback that they have their eyes on is Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater (Vic Tafur). Bridgewater has been projected as the first overall pick many times and seems to be the most ready to join the league. The Houston Texans hold the first pick in the draft and are in need of a quarterback as well. The latest rumors for the Texans have them liking Blake Bortles or Johnny Manziel. Bridgewater might be making a little bit of a slide and that could help out the Raiders.

The Raiders have a long wait till the 5th spot though and have other needs around the roster. If the Raiders decide to pass on the other quarterbacks in the draft, then they will be looking for any other talent to add onto the roster. They are in need of a lot of pieces to make this thing move.
