Report: Teddy Bridgewater not doing well in private workouts

For most of the past year Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has been considered a lock to be one of the top five picks in the 2014 NFL Draft, but that isn’t the case anymore. News got worse for Bridgewater on Friday as a report emerged that his private workouts haven’t been going well.

Teddy BridgewaterBridgewater struggled mightily at his Pro Day and apparently during his private workouts with teams he has been less than impressive. That report comes from ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, but I reached out to a few scouts and most felt the same way. One even told me he’d be shocked if Bridgewater went in the top 15, given the way things are trending.

Mortensen knows his stuff and he’s been told the Louisville signal-caller has been underwhelming in the private passing sessions with teams. He added that teams are also concerned with the small size of Bridgewater’s hands.

The Vikings will work Bridgewater out on Saturday, but he may not necessarily be in play for Minnesota at No. 8. The Vikings desperately need a new quarterback, but unless they’re blown away on Saturday, don’t expect them to go for Bridgewater at that spot in the first round.

The 21-year-old quarterback was once considered a lock for the No. 1 overall pick, but now that seems like a distant memory. Like Geno Smith last year, Bridgewater’s fall has been pretty stunning. It is another example of how numbers in college aren’t the only factor for teams when selecting a quarterback.

Bridgewater’s final landing spot will be a big story to watch as draft day approaches.
