Analysis:

Teddy Bridgewater is the best Quarterback in the 2014 NFL Draft. Bridgewater is very accurate and has quick footwork allowing him to navigate the pocket. Bridgewater also has a strong arm and can reach almost any spot on the field. He is extremely good when blitzed and has shown the confidence stepping into pressure to make a throw. Surprisingly fast, Bridgewater can escape the pocket when provided and tuck it if absolutely necessary.

The only knock on Bridgewater is that he has a small frame. Weighing only 214 lbs, NFL scouts are afraid he is not durable enough for the NFL. That being said, after Bridgewater is given an NFL meal plan, his frame should grow.

Don't be fooled by his bad pro day; Teddy Bridgewater has the potential to be a top 10 quarterback in the NFL.
