    QB Prospects Thread

    Teddy Bridgewater

    This is all of his snaps this year for anyone that wants to see. So it's not a highlight tape, it shows all his drop backs and throws (good or bad)

    Comparisons to bridgewater? Aaron Rodgers.

    Bridgewater will be a great pro. Reminds me of Aaron Rodgers coming out of Cal. - Bucky Brooks

    (Making quarterback comparisons) Teddy Bridgewater: Aaron Rodgers – Matt Miller

    I saw embryonic Rodgers aspects to (Bridgewater’s) game when he was on the move. – Doug Farrar

    (Referring to Bridgewater) I really like (Doug Farrar’s) comp to Aaron Rodgers. I see it. - Joe Bussell

    Great job on this thread...gives a one stop shop to just discuss QB. I'm not high on anyone other than the top 2 but I haven't got to see a lot of them actually play so this will help me break it down.

    Adopt-A-Viking: Harrison Smith
    Tackles: 23, INTs: 2, Sacks: 0

    There are a bunch of other QB's that should be included here and I'm sure we'll get to them soon enough.

    First chance to start evaluating these guys is at the East-West Shrine Game, Sat Jan 18 @ 4pm EST. I believe NFL Network is carrying the game. Notably Jimmy Garoppolo is playing in this game.

    Bridgewater = Rodgers, not a chance.

    Jimmy is also attending the Senior Bowl now that AJ Mccarron dropped out. I think he can really elevate his stock to the second round by performing well.
    A famous quote on PSD, from the one, the only;

    I hate to break it to ya like this amigo but nobody here is really too concerned with what you want like or need....ok? If a thread isn't for you do like everyone else, walk on by...ok?

    Chicago Tribune article on Jeff Matthew's, QB, Cornell, and Jimmy Garoppolo during Shrine Game practice week. http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2...chandler-jones

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. - Although the first day of practice is typically sloppy with a lot of walk-through as players become acclimated to a new setting, coaches and teammates, there were several prospects who stood out on day one of Shrine Game week, starting with the quarterbacks on the East Squad.

    Cornell's Jeff Mathews had a middling senior season and entered this week as a prospect under the microscope. In Monday's east practice, he started slow, but picked up steam and got into rhythm with as the drills progressed, showing off his big arm and downfield vision.

    Mathews displayed good placement, accuracy and anticipation, something that he flashed in college, and he gained confidence throughout the practice. His set-up, release and overall process is average at best, but he has the superior arm strength compared to the other passers in St. Petersburg this week.

    While he doesn't have the arm strength of Mathews, Eastern Illinois' Jimmy Garoppolo showed off what he does well on Monday. He was quick in his set-up, delivery and timing to quickly scan the field and get the ball out of his hand before the rush reached him.

    Garoppolo doesn't have an elite arm, but he snaps off better velocity than expected with touch to give his receivers a catchable ball. Different teams will prefer Garopollo's style, while others will lean toward Mathews, but both had a positive first day.

    I hope Jimmy G doesn't elevate his stock so we can steal him in the 3rd....because using the 1st 2 picks on D (or Watkins) and getting a potential starting QB in the 3rd would be saWEET!
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    I dont see how people can compare a college kid to a top tier QB without him playing a single snap in the NFL yet. I would take these comparisons with a grain of salt. Even if he does remind them of Rodgers coming out of Cal, it doesnt mean anything. Rodgers got drafted into a situation where he got to learn for 3 years under a HOF QB and a QB guru of a head coach. Teddy will not get that luxury and will likely get thrown into the fire and expected to produce before he is ready. Who knows how Rodgers would have ended up if he would have been thrown into a worse situation (alex smith?)

    props to VCU for the sig!

    Jeez i didnt know comparisons would get some people butt hurt.

    These are scouts/analyst that study the game for a living, it's their job. I'll take their word over most of the people in this forum. (No offense)

    Its kind of starting to feel like this draft is going to be really chaotic…

    We've talked a lot about an early run on QB's but there is another possibility- It could happen that all the teams that need QBs see value in the 2nd & 3rd QB's and they ALL start dropping. It's gonna be crazy.

    One prediction I will make - I've read a lot of articles that the Pats see Mettenberger as Brady's future replacement. I don't think the Pats would take him in the 1st round but I could definitely see the Pats taking him in the 2nd round. So if 'Booger' turns out to be the guy Norv wants its gonna cost the Vikes their 2nd round pick or higher.
