NFL draft quarterback prospect, Teddy Bridgewater may not have had the best pro day of the prospective NFL passers, but the former Louisville QB has still been honing his skills...with some of the Chicago Bears team.

Bears quarterback, Jay Cutler and teammate Brandon Marshall have been showing Bridgewater how to make some of the throws that he will be required to make at the next level. reports:"(they're) giving the first-round draft prospect an up-close look at what NFL throws — and catches — are supposed to look like.T he players are working together at FitSpeed Athletic Performance, an athletic training facility in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., co-founded by Marshall."

Bridgewater will likely not be a target for the Bears in the draft, Chicago already have Cutler and Bridgewater is a little too good to be a backup and most likely will be off the board by the time the Bears have a selection.

However, the chance to practice with NFL veterans at a training facility will be valuable for Bridgewater if he is to improve on his pro day performance and impress teams in individual workouts.

He was expected to be the top pick in the draft throughout the 2013 college football season but had inexplicably dropped off the radar during the offseason. His draft stock was further damaged by his pro day performance, whilst Johnny Manziel and Blake Bortles both impressed.

Where do you think Bridgewater will be drafted? Let us know in the comments.
