Ranking the top quarterbacks in the NFL draft

  • Updated: May 6, 2014 - 9:46 AM

 

{1}

Teddy Bridgewater

School: Louisville

Height, weight: 6-2, 214 pounds

Projection: First round

Strengths: Played in a pro-ready offense, accurate, reads through his progressions, good decision-maker.

Weaknesses: Questions about durability (although he didn’t miss a game at Louisville) and arm strength.

The skinny: Don’t buy any “unnamed” one-source stories, and there have been plenty about Bridgewater in a negative light. He edges out Bortles and Manziel and would be a steal if he falls out of the top 10.

 

{2}

Blake Bortles

School: Central Florida

Height, weight: 6-5, 232

Projection: First round

Strengths: Has size of a prototypical quarterback, mobile and can extend plays, can fit throws in tight spots.

Weaknesses: Raw, footwork in pocket, deep-ball accuracy.

The skinny: Bortles isn’t ready to start yet, but he has the highest ceiling. For that reason, he’ll be the first quarterback taken at No. 3 by Jacksonville or No. 4 by Cleveland.
