NFL Network’s Daniel Jeremiah has released his newest mock draft and there is a big surprise to go with it. Jeremiah has mocked Teddy Bridgewater to number 26, three spots below the Chiefs’ pick.
Here’s what Bryan Fischer had to say about it.
Jeremiah has two other quarterbacks going ahead of Bridgewater and, with most of the teams in the middle of the first round not looking for somebody under center, the result is a huge drop to the Browns at No. 26. The former NFL scout still believes Bridgewater is the top quarterback in the draft this year but notes that there are few teams that are getting exciting about him. We’ll guess the Browns would be thrilled if he falls to them at the back of the first round, however.
“A mock draft is more about what you’re hearing out there and there was never a lot of buzz about Bridgewater before. Then there was a lot of negative attention coming out of that pro day,” Jeremiah said. “This drop isn’t purely about his pro day, it’s because I haven’t been able to get a lot of enthusiasm about him from executives around the league I talked to.”
Jeremiah has Kansas City taking Marqise Lee at number 23, but if Teddy Bridgewater is available then John Dorsey has to take him, right? Not very often does a quarterback many have as a top five overall pick fall to the mid-20’s. The Chiefs absolutely need to take Bridgewater if Jeremiah’s scenario plays out.
Do you agree? Should the Chiefs take Bridgewater or should they pass?
