Teddy to the Texans in McShay’s Mock 1.0

TEDDY-BRIDGEWATER-DREAMS-ABOUT-THE-HOUSTON-TEXANS

Today ESPN’s Todd McShay released his Mock Draft 1.0 and has our very own Teddy Bridgewater going #1 to the Houston Texans. While McShay does have the Texans taking Teddy #1 he does admit it’s not a lock. McShay says that Houston may question Teddy’s durability and that Blake Bortles has a higher ceiling………………………. Wait did I read that right? Well here’s what Todd had to say in full:

1
Teddy Bridgewater*
COLLEGE: Louisville
AGE: 21
HT: 6-2
WT: 220
POS: QB

Analysis: This is a tough call right off the bat. I have Bridgewater ranked as the top quarterback prospect in this class, but just ninth overall. The question for the Texans is going to be this: Do you have a player at another position who grades out considerably higher? (Possibilities include Texas A&M OT Jake Matthews or South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney.) Because if not, given their need at QB and the importance of that position, my guess is that they’d talk themselves into taking Bridgewater — or whichever QB ranks highest on their board in May.

Bridgewater has great football intelligence, is mentally and physically tough, and has proved he can beat opponents from inside the pocket; he can read defenses, has a quick release and is very accurate. If he isn’t the top overall pick, it’ll be because of questions about his durability. He’ll also need to hold off UCF quarterback Blake Bortles during the draft process. Bortles isn’t as polished as Bridgewater but does have a higher ceiling.
