Ourlads' Profile:

2014 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about Teddy Bridgewater: Louisville, 6021 214 4.85. Junior entry. Three-year starter. An accurate (71% in 2013) and clutch quarterback who makes good decisions. Right-handed. Throws to a spot, not to a man. He passes the ball before the receiver breaks. Good poise and presence in the pocket. Has quiet feet. He can roll away from pressure. Productive on third down. The team has confidence in Teddy and he makes the players better around him. Against this competition he can gun the ball into tight spots for a completion. Disciplined with the football. His performance is generally consistent and reliable. Leads by example. Needs to work on deep accuracy. There are head scratchers that each team is addressing along with the positive production over Bridgewater’s career. Durability is a major concern. He has an injury history that reaches back to high school. Almost every body part and joint has been nicked up. His ectomorphic build is not conducive to growth or to the train wrecks he will encounter on Sunday afternoons. He wears gloves to throw which is some indication that he has problems gripping the football. Competition level was such that he rarely faced any NFL prospects. What did he do versus good teams? Central Florida was the only top-25 team that he faced. Connecticut, Memphis, South Florida, Temple, Kentucky, and Florida International combined for 13 wins. Four other opponents were poorly rated. Not working out at the Combine and a poor pro day workout left more questions than answers for evaluators. Ball clubs are wondering how much better he can get. Runs more of a traditional West Coast offense where the team huddles. Climbs the pocket well while keeping his eyes down the field. Good athlete who is smooth and consistent. Quick release. Can stretch a secondary and is accurate with his back shoulder throws. Stands strong in the pocket. Accurate when rolling out and throwing to his right. He doesn’t leave the pocket and run too early. Lays the ball out for his receiver. Good touch and feel. Throws his receivers open. Good ball placement to receivers on blitzes. Will take what is there in the passing game. Uses his check downs and outlet receivers as needed. Will stare down an oncoming blitzer and throw the ball accurately. A good package of tangible and intangible assets. 2013 stats: 303/427, 3970 passing yds, 71.0%, 31 TD, 4 INT. Did not work out or throw at Combine, his choice. First round. (A-33, H-9 1/4, SS-4.20, VJ-30).
