South Alabama senior QB Brandon Bridge completed 20-of-37 attempts for 279 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions, and rushed for 41 yards and a touchdown in a 33-28 loss to Bowling Green on Saturday in the Camelia Bowl.
Bridge was the victim of a comedy of drops, and he complained on the sidelines at one point that his receivers weren't running the correct routes, according to the ESPN broadcast team. For his part, Bridge consistently wasn't setting his feet in the pocket. To be fair to both parties, the Jags recently hired new OC Bryant Vincent, the former UAB OC, and trotted out a new scheme on short notice. Vincent, it should be added, admitted he hadn't had time to watch South Alabama film, so he obviously didn't have a great handle on his personnel. Bridge has an NFL-grade gun, and NFL-grade athleticism, but he's about as raw as they come, with happy feet and a propensity to fire fastballs to nearby receivers expecting changeups. CBS projects the signal-caller as a mid-to-late round draft pick. "The ball shoots off his hand and he has some traits you cannot teach," an AFC North scout said earlier this year. "I'm just not sure how naturally the game comes to him." Dec 21 - 1:08 AM

Date:

South Alabama senior QB Brandon Bridge will attend the NFLPA bowl.

Not to criticize the NFLPA game, but we are surprised Bridge is not at the East West Shrine game, or even potentially the Senior Bowl. Bridge's box score is fairly ugly, as he completed 52 percent of his passes this season and produced a TD to INT ratio of 14:6. Still, South Alabama receivers dropped plenty of passers and Bridge is viewed as a developmental prospect. He has great athleticism and an arm to hit throws at every level of the field.

A scout speaking to CBS Sports said South Alabama senior QB Brandon Bridge "has some traits you cannot teach."

"He's as raw as he is talented," the AFC North scout said. "The ball shoots off his hand and he has some traits you cannot teach. I'm just not sure how naturally the game comes to him. How much better can he get? What is his football ceiling? I'm not sure. But he could end up being a bargain for a team that brings him along at his pace." CBS projects Bridge as a mid-to-late round draft pick, and ranks him as the No. 6 senior QB. "He has elite-level arm strength and release quickness with the ability to add velocity and extra RPM's on his throws with ease," CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote. "Bridge isn't shy about testing tight windows and trusts his arm to make frozen rope throws and put the ball anywhere he wants on the field. He has mobility to keep the play alive when the pocket breaks down, shaking off arm tackles and stepping up with his eyes downfield." According to the analyst, Bridge must work on his mechanics and accuracy.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler reports that it "doesn't sound promising" that South Alabama senior QB Brandon Bridge (ankle) will play on Saturday against South Carolina.

"Had a good chat with South Alabama QB Brandon Bridge this morning. Doesn't sound promising that he'll play Saturday vs. South Carolina (ankle)," Brugler tweeted. Two weeks ago the South Alabama prospect was forced out of the Louisiana-Lafayette game with an ankle injury, and was unable to give it a go against Texas State. QB Hunter Vaughn, will once again start under center in Bridge's absence.

South Alabama senior QB Brandon Bridge exited Saturday's game against Louisiana-Lafayette with an ankle injury.

Prior to exiting, Bridge had completed 16 of 27 attempts for 177 yards and a touchdown. He was replaced by Matt Floyd. There have been no updates on Bridge's injury. South Alabama plays Arkansas State next.
Nov 3 - 10:50 AM

South Alabama senior QB Brandon Bridge completed 9 of 21 attempts for 106 yards and a touchdown in the school's 27-13 win over Troy.

Bridge posted an awesome first quarter that culminated with a 45 yard touchdown pass, which was a real Sunday throw. As with many games, Bridge's box score looks poor, but that can partially be attributed to multiple drops and at least one long pass interference penalty. Box score enthusiasts will not like Bridge, but his skills will be worth a shot by NFL teams. He could be the top true senior quarterback prospect.

An NFL source compared South Alabama QB Brandon Bridge to Colin Kaepernick.

"Bridge is building a real buzz inside war rooms," TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline reported. "One league source compared his physical skills to Colin Kaepernick’s as Bridge has the arm strength to make all the throws as well as the leg speed to make big plays running the ball. When questioned about his rather ordinary completion percentage of 55% this season I was told there have been 40 recorded drops of catchable passes by South Alabama targets this season. Bridge will likely receive a Senior Bowl invite, though for disclosure purposes none of this is coming from Senior Bowl staff. If he does turn up in uniform next January in Mobile it will be a huge opportunity for Bridge." Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage said the 6-foot-4, 220-pound Bridge, a Canadian native, "has height, a big arm and the athleticism to develop."

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler predicts South Alabama QB Brandon Bridge and TE Wes Saxon will become the first players ever drafted from the school.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Bridge went 21-of-39 with no touchdowns, one interception, and 203 yards versus Mississippi State over the weekend. "The Canadian native did a nice job scanning from the pocket and pushing the ball downfield with talent that reminds me of a less refined Colin Kaepernick," Brugler wrote. "Bridge is tall and lean with a rocket launcher on his right shoulder like the 49ers quarterback and has more than enough velocity on his passes to toss ropes to all levels of the field. He lacks ideal experience, but shows a good understanding of situations and field awareness, playing under control of the offense with a quick processor to read the field then grip it and rip it. Bridge needs to tighten his mechanics, improve his pocket presence and sharpen his ball placement, but from a tools perspective, he has intriguing talent worth developing."

After watching South Alabama senior QB Brandon Bridge play against Mississippi State, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler is "very intrigued" with the Jaguars prospect.

The 6-foot-4, 220-pound Bridge had a decent day versus Mississippi State completing 21-of-39 passes, with one interception, and 203 yards passing. He was sacked six times. Bridge was on target for most of the day, but his wide receivers dropped several passes in the Jaguars 35-3 blowout loss to Mississippi State. Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage believes Bridge "has height, a big arm and the athleticism to develop."

South Alabama has a QB to work with in junior Brandon Bridge, according to Senior Bowl executive director Phil Savage.

"He has height, a big arm and the athleticism to develop," Savage tweeted. After spending two seasons at Alcorn State, Bridge appears to have the talent to make a splash at the FBS level in 2013.
