Some teams don't view QB Teddy Bridgewater as a first round pick

NFL.com reports that some teams view Teddy Bridgewater as something other than a first round pick. Bridgewater's early season performances propelled him into the spotlight with many analysts projecting him to be the first over pick this May. While many experts still anticipate a top five selection, his slender frame (6 foot 3 inches, 196Lbs.) and the rising stock of Johnny Manziel, Blake Bortles, and even Derek Carr could spell a longer wait on draft day.

Fantasy Analysis:

With months to go until the NFL draft, the jockeying for top quarterback is well under way. You can argue that quarterbacks Brett Hundley and Marcus Mariota's battle for the top spot in the 2015 draft began months ago.

Teddy Bridgewater's performance this year should have cemented him as a first round pick. With 31 touchdowns to only four interceptions, the Louisville product did everything on the field that was asked of him. He posseses accuracy, mobility and leadership skills. It's his size that might hold him back on draft day. Rarely are NFL quarterback's under 200 pounds, couple that with his height, Bridgewater is viewed by some as fragile.

Unlike last year, many of the top teams in the draft lack a franchise quarterback. Even if some experts grade Bridgewater out of the first round, that won't stop a team from taking him early.
