Mayock latest to slam Bridgewater

Teddy Bridgewater 2014 NFL Draft prospects

LAS VEGAS, NV (The Spread) - Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's stock continues to drop the closer we get to the 2014 NFL Draft.

It doesn't feel that long ago that Bridgewater was the consensus first overall pick in May's draft. But with the rise of Blake Bortles, the continued growing popularity of Johnny Manziel, as well as a very poor Pro Day performance, Bridgewater appears to be headed for a slide.

Will he fall out of the first round altogether? Mike Mayock says he wouldn't take the Louisville quarterback in the first 32 picks.

"I've never seen a top-level quarterback in the last 10 years have a bad pro day, until Teddy Bridgewater," Mayock said via NFL.com. "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."

What's ironic is that Mayock prides himself on watching more film than any draft pundit to take the airways. And when you watch the film, Bridgewater is accurate, poised and talented. Granted, his arm strength has been questioned since the end of the 2013 college football season, but it's not as if he doesn't show the ability to test teams deep. Derek Carr, for example, has a strong arm but the majority of his attempts at Fresno State last year were under 10 yards. At least Bridgewater had the willingness to throw vertically last season. He just needs to become more accurate on his deep throws.

The 2014 NFL Draft is shaping up to be one of the most unpredictable drafts in recent memory. Where Bridgewater will fall is anyone's guess.
