For a number of scouts and high-profile analysts, Bridgewater did not pass with flying colors.

Former Northwestern High QB Teddy Bridgewater not real impressive at his pro day. Looks like he still needs to gain 10-15 lbs., too.

Curious decision to go gloveless by Bridgewater during Pro Day. Could have an impact. But again, film shows what you need to see.

Gil Brandt, as well as former Browns offensive coordinator Norv Turner, shared a different opinion of his performance.
Not as down on Bridgewater workout as some. Only saw 1 bad throw. Norv Turner told me he thought it was pretty good.

Six NFL head coaches, Bill O’Brien of the Houston Texans, Gus Bradley of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Chip Kelly of the Philadelphia Eagles, Dennis Allen of the Oakland Raiders, Mike Zimmer of the Minnesota Vikings and Ken Whisenhunt of the Tennessee Titans, were reportedly in attendance. General managers for the Vikings, Jets, Titans and Colts were also there.
Bridgewater is projected among the top three quarterbacks and as a potential top five pick.
