4. Teddy Bridgewater Had a Subpar Pro Day, According to Some
ESPN notes that Bridgewater had a “subpar pro day,” and this could impact his chances of being a first round pick…particularly if he is sought buy a team with a home stadium in a colder climate.
Other weaknesses outlined by ESPN are as follows:
“There have been several common knocks on Bridgewater before the draft, his arm strength being the most common one.
