Recent News's Ian Rapoport believes the Bucs are "prepared to dial up a signal-caller" at No. 7 overall.
That doesn't mean they will, only that they're prepared to. It would be a mild surprise after the Bucs signed Josh McCown on the heels of Mike Glennon's solid rookie season, but it's quite possible Glennon isn't the long-term answer. We know McCown isn't. The Bucs have a better roster than their draft position would indicate, and could afford to invest in their future if the right player falls. Apr 17 - 9:23 PM

Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater's agent told ProFootballTalk his client has only had one private workout, and the assessment they received was "simply amazing and sharp."

This contradicts a report from ESPN's Chris Mortensen stating Bridgewater had looked shaky in his private workouts -- which is obviously impossible considering he has only had one. There is blood in the water surrounding Bridgewater, and NFL teams will say anything or leak any information if it means a coveted player will fall to them. Lying season is in full swing.

Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater will work out for the Vikings on Saturday.

The Vikings are continuing their quarterback search after meeting with Jimmy Garoppolo on Friday. Bridgewater's private workouts have reportedly gone "very shakily," so he isn't necessarily in play for Minnesota's No. 8 overall pick and could ultimately fall out of the top half of the first round. The Vikings are believed to be high on LSU QB Zach Mettenberger, and have already met with Central Florida's Blake Bortles and Fresno State's Derek Carr. Bridgewater previously visited with the Bucs and Patriots.

Even after struggling at his Pro Day, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reported Friday that Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater's private workouts with NFL clubs "have also gone very shakily."

Mort believes Bridgewater's forthcoming draft-day slide won't occur solely because of his Pro Day. He says Bridgewater's private passing sessions with teams have been underwhelming, too. Mortensen added that teams remain concerned with Bridgewater's smallish hands. Once considered the likely No. 1 overall pick, Bridgewater's fall could ultimately mimic Geno Smith's from last year.

The Florida Times Union believes it's "worth debating" whether the Jaguars' interest in Browns transition-tagged C Alex Mack is an indication they plan to draft a quarterback at No. 3 overall.

Beat writer Ryan O'Halloran refers to it as a "juicy theory," that the Jaguars would poach Mack to "ease the transition" for a rookie quarterback. Of course, this same theory could apply if Jacksonville drafted an early second-round signal caller. For now, our expectation is the Jaguars will select the highest-rated pass rusher available at No. 3 overall, either Jadeveon Clowney or Khalil Mack.

Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater will visit the Patriots on Wednesday.

That's in addition to Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel. Profootballtalk speculated the Pats could be hosting Manziel in an effort to gauge his value in the case of a draft-day fall, with the thinking being they'd have a good grasp of his value in case a team wanted to trade up from the second round and acquire New England's No. 29 pick. The same logic could easily apply to Bridgewater, though he's less likely to fall to the final third of Round 1 than Manziel. Neither player should remain on the board by the time the Pats pick.

According to STATS Ice, Teddy Bridgewater's 11.9 percent "off-target" throw rate in 2013 was the best among this year's top-rated signal callers.

Among Bridgewater's 427 attempts, he was charged with just seven underthrows, 12 "wide" throws, and 32 overthrows. Johnny Manziel had the worst "off target" rate at 14.9 percent. Zach Mettenberger's 12.2 percent came in second behind Bridgewater. Blake Bortles and Tajh Boyd tied for third at 12.6 percent.

Per the San Francisco Chronicle, "it is safe to say" the Raiders are "not in love" with any of this year's top quarterback prospects.

Not that we'd rely on the Raiders' scouting department to predict NFL success, but this is a note worth filing away for mock drafters. (After trading for Matt Schaub, Oakland almost certainly won't use the fifth overall pick at quarterback.) In the last week, the Raiders have trekked to watch Teddy Bridgewater, Derek Carr, and Blake Bortles' Pro Days. Jadeveon Clowney, Sammy Watkins, and perhaps even Mike Evans are likelier candidates to land in Oakland.
Mar 22 - 2:19 PM's Gil Brandt came away from Monday's Louisville Pro Day believing Teddy Bridgewater had a "good, solid workout."

Per Brandt, Bridgewater completed 57-of-65 passes in "the longest quarterback workout I've ever seen." Two of his incompletions were dropped by receivers. Brandt wonders why Bridgewater did not sport gloves, which he's done since high school. Bridgewater continues to face questions about his smallish frame and arm strength. There's really no telling at this point where he'll be drafted.

The Houston Chronicle reports Teddy Bridgewater was "less accurate than expected" during Monday's Louisville Pro Day, as "several" of his passes were "clearly off target" and his ball "often fluttered."

The workout was held indoors. Bridgewater (6'2/208) also weighed in six pounds lighter than his Combine measurement and proceeded to make numerous underthrows and overthrows. Per the Chronicle, "more than ten" of Bridgewater's 65 Pro Day throws were "either misses or drops." Conceded Bridgewater afterwards, "it was nowhere near where I wanted it to be." Added NFL Network's Kurt Warner, "I think he missed a few more throws than you expect at a Pro Day." Bridgewater ran a 4.78 forty-yard dash. He threw without gloves after donning them throughout his high school and college careers. Bridgewater's draft stock has seemingly been falling since the end of the college season.

A league source tells the Florida Times Union that the Jaguars are unlikely to use a first-round pick on a quarterback after re-signing Chad Henne to a two-year contract on Friday.

There is increasing chatter that quarterbacks are going to fall in the draft, and the slides could be expedited if QB-needy teams like Jacksonville suddenly pull out of the derby. Of course, this is Lying Season in the NFL, making it difficult to trust anonymous "league sources." Stated the source, "With Henne back, I don't expect them to take QB until 2nd round and maybe not until 3rd or 4th round." It's worth noting that the source's quarterback expectation would be similar to the path that led the Seahawks to Russell Wilson. Gus Bradley was Seattle's defensive coordinator at the time. He's now the Jaguars' head coach.

The Houston Chronicle's John McClain reports the Texans are "seriously considering" each of Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles and Johnny Manziel with the No. 1 pick.

Per McClain, there's a "long way to go in the process." McClain — who is the most plugged-in Texans reporter — has been adamant that the team will take a signal caller at No. 1, though there's been recent chatter they could select South Carolina DE Jadeveon Clowney. Bortles appears to be the favorite at this exact moment, but there's plenty of time for that to change.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell stated on the Ross Tucker Podcast that he's heard Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater's weight dropped to 188 pounds late in the 2013 college season.

Cosell is very plugged-in around the NFL, so we don't doubt this for a second. "He bulked up to 214 for the Combine," said Cosell. "I've spoken to people who said that late in the year at Louisville, he weighed 188." On tape, Cosell was impressed with Bridgewater's comfort in the pocket and coverage reading, but concerned about his "very slight" build and average arm strength. "He doesn't really drive the ball, Bridgewater," Cosell stated. "He's a bit of a short-armer."

Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater will not throw at the NFL Combine.

Top quarterbacks rarely throw at the Combine these days, preferring instead to show off their talents in the more comfortable environment pro days afford. The decision not to throw will have zero bearing on Bridgewater's draft status. He will not slip past Oakland at pick five.

Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater measured 6-foot-2 1/8 and 214 pounds at Friday's Scouting Combine weigh-in.

He was listed at 6-foot-3, 205 by Louisville, though NFL personnel men all along have expected Bridgewater to be a shade shorter than that listing. The 214-pound weight is a positive for Bridgewater, as there have been concerns about his "slight" build. Bridgewater does have somewhat small, 9 1/4-inch hands. He still won't get beyond the Raiders' pick at No. 5 overall.
