Mettenberger over Bridgewater now? Wow, he must have really been wrong after his initial assessment prior to Bridgewater's pro day. Pretty sure I remember him saying on NFLN he initially watched 4 games and based on them, ranked him #1. As a result of the poor pro day and the red flags it raised, he went back and watched another 4 games. So he didn't see any of the concerns in those first 4 games that would rank him below #1, only noticing them in the other 4 games? Just seems odd that Bridgewater would be able to 'hide' the concerns in some games and have them exploited in others.

I did appreciate Charles Davis mentioning yesterday on NFLN that people are raising concerns over Bridgewater's size, meanwhile he's the same as Carr and nobody says anything about him. Just a little tired of the Bridgewater bashing and think it's overblown.

From what I understand, theres also concerns if Bridgewater can be a leader and a face of the franchise. Usually guys who lack that don't do very well in the NFL. Add one of the worst Pro days ever and you have a lot of questions on your hands. Its not that he watched those extra 4 games, he also talked to people with inside information. You also get to know the player in the offseason besides seeing him work out, which is a factor. Something most people won't feel comfortable taking a risk on until the second round, and I understand that.

Some good points, but I find it funny though for Mayock to have him ranked #1, then he said Bridgewater was dropped to #5 on his list mainly because of the other games he reviewed. I wonder if part of that drop is more because of what he heard and doesn't want to 'look bad' having him rated so high. Mayock's good at what he does, but definitely has an ego.

I don't know, I like the kid and think he can be a good pro. There isn't one polished QB in this draft in my opinion, but still feel teams might reach because of the hoopla (specifically Manziel). I'm hoping they reach so we get a better shot at the true blue chip prospects without having to trade up. Have a feeling though that a trade is inevitable (with TD's track record and with whom I think they covet).

I think its a process, he dropped other guys from his top 5 over the past few months. Teams do the same thing. Theres something to be said about doing more research and admitting you were initially wrong to rank him that high.

Mayock was neither wrong then nor is he wrong now.

Earlier in the year, before Mayock started actually talking to teams about where players are going to get drafted, he evaluated Teddy Bridgewater as the best QB in this class. That is his opinion.

Since then, he's been talking to NFL teams, and most if not all NFL teams value Bridgewater significantly less than Mayock. Rather than being stubborn (and wrong, come draft day) and keeping Bridgewater as his #1 QB, he moved him to better represent where he's going to be drafted, not where Mayock thinks he should be drafted.

I watched him being interviewed on NFLN and that's not how he explained it.
