If you've been following news relating to the 2014 NFL Draft on the internet, you know that Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater had his Pro Day on Monday. You've probably also seen that many of the people in attendance feel that Bridgwater looked. . .well, let's say sub-par.
But fear not, ladies and gentlemen! For there was one man that thought that young Bridgewater looked pretty good at his workout today.
And that man. . .is NORV~!
Not as down on Bridgewater workout as some. Only saw 1 bad throw. Norv Turner told me he thought it was pretty good.— Gil Brandt (@Gil_Brandt) March 17, 2014
See, at this point in the process, what are you really going to learn from a Pro Day? You have years worth of game film on the guy, you've seen him do things in actual game situations, and you either think the guy can play football or you think he can't. Hey, if enough teams want to pass on Teddy Bridgewater to let him get to #8, the Vikings better be sprinting to the podium in order to make that pick happen.
For some reason, Bridgewater chose to throw today without a glove after spending his entire college career throwing with one. I don't care what the guy's wearing on his hands. . .hell, he can slap on a pair of oven mitts as far as I'm concerned. Whatever helps him throw the football. And, hey, if he's going to be throwing passes at TCF Bank Stadium for the next two years, those gloves might come in handy.
If the Houston Texans, St. Louis Rams, Jacksonville Jaguars, Cleveland Browns, Oakland Raiders, Atlanta Falcons, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers would all like to pass on Teddy Bridgewater because of what they saw on a random day in March, that would suit me just fine. I think it would suit most of you just fine, too.
