Out of all of the top-tier quarterbacks projected to go early in the 2014 NFL Draft, former Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater may have suffered the most damage to his stock in the long lead-up to May's festivities.
Per Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, the potential Cleveland Browns target still has the faith of his former quarterbacks coach at Louisville, Shawn Watson, behind him:
“All the big games we were in that changed our program, he showed up big," Watson said. "He showed up when the lights turned on and they got really bright. He didn’t shrink. He got bigger than the lights. He’s a great competitor. You put that with his work ethic and his character, and those two things I believe really helped him to realize his talent. I think he is a slam dunk. It’s an easy one."
Whether or not the Cleveland Browns see him as an "easy one" is up for debate. However, the Browns may be inclined to look past his less-than-stellar pro day performance if they feel his complete package of skills is what they need to lead their offense into the future.
