There's a big debate right now about who is the best quarterback in the 2014 NFL draft: Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles or Johnny Manziel.
There is yet to be a general consensus reached on where these three will go in May, but according to Cleveland.com, a current NFL quarterback has had his say on the situation:
"One current NFL starting quarterback, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told cleveland.com that if an NFL team wants to win, it should take the taller and bigger Bortles in the upcoming draft.
'If you want to win, you don't draft (Johnny) Manziel. You draft (Blake) Bortles.'"
All three of the guys available have their own pro's and cons but this player clearly feels that the former UCF Knight Bortles is the best option for any team in the draft.
Bortles is passes the eye test straight away. Standing at 6"5 and weighing 230 pounds, Bortles possesses elite physicality and has drawn comparisons to Pittsburgh Steelers play caller Ben Roethlisberger for his stature combined with ability to move in the pocket.
Teddy Bridgewater is probably the best all rounder under center but finds himself being left behind the other two in column inches and radio chatter, despite being as talented as his contemporaries.
Bridgewater threw for an incredible 31 touchdowns last season at Louisville and is generally considered the safest bet and most NFL ready.
Johnny Manziel polarizes opinion. You'll find guys who love him and others that have him classed as a complete bust if he goes first.
Manziel's ability as a playmaker isn't in question but his composure in the pocket is sadly lacking and he often runs when he doesn't need to, missing free receivers down field.
