  • "The main attraction will be Louisville junior quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who sits atop a lot of draft boards. Bridgewater (6-foot-3, 196 pounds) is averaging 312.4 passing yards per game, with 16 TDs and one interception, and he is completing 71.7 percent of his passes."

  • 196? Kid needs to put some muscle on. That's light for the NFL especially for a 6'3" QB.

  • It's the new NFL. A QB can never be too short or too thin.

  • 6'3 196 is soccer defender in terms of weight. Wilson is 5 inches shorter and 14 pounds heavier.

  • It'll make me sick if the Steelers get Bridgewater or Boyd. I haven't formed my own opinion on Bridgewater, but, I'm going to assume he's real deal.

    They'll be good if the hit on a QB. Add youth defensively and they're 8-8, minimum next year. That OL will be a damn good one, eventually.

    I liked the Steelers when they nabbed Ben.

  • Bridgewater doesn't really get me going. He's good, but tonight he was finally playing an opponent with at least similar talent and he wasn't all that great. Rutgers blitzed the hell out of him, stunted to the right a lot, which makes me think that they noticed he struggles throwing to his left and they were trying to force his hand a bit. He looks like a real smart kid though and goes through his progressions quickly, I wonder about his ability to fire the ball into small spaces though

    That's Richard Sherman's height and weight, give/take a pound.

  • The kid has a gigantic arm and seems to have a great command of the huddle. What's the comparison? I'd say his skillset is very much like Cutler, except he's more likeable. Maybe phillip rivers?
    It's gonna be interesting though to see if Mariotta goes higher

  • I think they should be sending scouts to watch the Beaver Sean Mannion (OSU) and the Duck Markus Mariota (UO). Mannion has impressed me this season with his smart.

    Very true. I was thinking in QB terms because they take a bigger beating.

    Though it is funny to think about Sherman being so huge for a CB at that weight, though.
