Skip Bayless: Teddy Bridgewater is not a high draft pick

Louisville quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater has long been thought of among the top quarterbacks in this year's NFL draft. However in recent weeks, his draft stock has fallen and now top ESPN analyst Skip Bayless is unsure of his potential.

Speaking on his twitter account, Bayless said: "TBridgewater is a fine young man but lacks leadership charisma, It Factor. Suffered stage fright on his Pro Day. Bad sign. Not a high pick."

Bayless was referring to Bridgewater's pro day yesterday, which scout Mike Mayock referred to as 'average at best'.

The analyst has long confessed to being a supporter of Johnny Manziel, the quarterback from Texas A&M and believes that he should be taken high in the first round. Clearly he does not feel that same way about the signal-caller from Louisville.

Bridgewater threw for over 3,900 yards last year at Louisville but Manziel and UCF quarterback, Blake Bortles have gathered fans during the offseason whilst Bridgewater has lost admirers for seemingly doing nothing at all.

He did lose fans after not participating in any combine drills and now with a sub-par pro day on record, it remains to be seen which NFL teams will be willing to take a chance on Teddy Bridgewater.
