It was not long ago, Mike Mayock one of the best Draft Analysts in the game rated Louisville quarterback as a top tier QB. Well things have changed. A matter of fact Mike feels he is not even a 1st rounder.
“I would say in general, tape is worth about 85 percent of an overall grade, and the rest of the process is set up for red flags, and to go back and watch more tape to try to confirm what you saw or didn’t see,” Mayock said. “I saw about four of his tapes prior to the combine, and I really liked him. I thought he had a chance to be a franchise quarterback from what I saw on the tape. … Except you’ve got to see the quarterbacks throw the ball live. I’ve never seen a top-level quarterback in the last 10 years have a bad pro day, until Teddy Bridgewater. He had no accuracy, the ball came out funny, the arm strength wasn’t there, and it made me question everything I saw on tape because this was live.
“I went back and watched a bunch more tape and compared him to the rest of the guys in the draft,” he said. “And like it or not, I’ve come to a conclusion — if i was a GM in the NFL, I would not take him in the first round of the draft.”
Wow, I still feel he is one of the better QB’s in this draft.
