      Mark Dominik: Teddy Bridgewater’s problems go beyond Pro DayPosted by Michael David Smith on April 18, 2014, 5:43 PM EDT Former Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater’s draft stock has appeared to decline dramatically in recent weeks, as a disappointing Pro Day has led to talk that he’s not the potential No. 1 overall pick that he was proclaimed to be during the 2013 season. But one NFL personnel man says that in reality, Bridgewater’s stock was never that high to begin with.Mark Dominik, the former Buccaneers general manager who now serves as an analyst for ESPN, said on NFL Live that he doesn’t believe Bridgewater’s Pro Day is a problem so much as his skinny frame, as well as the fact that Bridgewater didn’t always look like an elite passer on tape.“There were things you saw on tape when you watched him,” Dominik said. “Something that scouts internally, we talked about it in Tampa with Teddy Bridgewater last year. Is he really the premiere quarterback? I like the young man, I think he’s a quality individual, he’s got character and leadership and those things. But this is a quarterback, and you’re judged by what quarterback you draft, and I think Teddy Bridgewater might not have all the pieces you’re looking for.Dominik indicated that if teams with Top 5 picks like the Texans, Jaguars and Browns are interested in Bridgewater, their interest is in hoping Bridgewater falls all the way out of the first round and is still available early in the second round. That’s a long fall from where most people thought Bridgewater would be drafted.http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/04/18/mark-dominik-teddy-bridgewaters-problems-go-beyond-pro-day/Something about the guy just doesn't pass the eyeball test with me.

      If Teddy’s frame is too skinny, then so is Matt Ryan’s frame, so is Alex Smith’s frame. Someone should notify the Falcons and Chiefs…

      Grown men that call themselves Teddy instead of Ted does kind of suggest he might be mentally challenged.

      Here’s some NFL logic for you….Teddy, not a good prospect because his frame is to small. JFF, great prospect because he's magic.When analyzing the QB spot, it's probably wise to focus on the things that the player does or does not do in the passing game. Who knows I've never drafted a head case bust who bought more scented candles than one man every should.Teddy B is the most pro ready and will prove to be the best QB in the draft. Put that shit in the books and I'll stamp it.

      The article is very relevant to us, much more than all these other rumors.  MD says he had these conversations with Tampa scouts, and last time I checked, we still have the same scouts.Until Licht can reshape the front office, he'll be leaning on those scouts, especially in the coming draft.

      Disregard the $…he still made poor personnel decisions when ot came to signing/re-signing players.Eric Wright - Below average CB brought in to be a 1b type CB = Poor personnel decision.Davin Joseph - Injury prone G whose performances and production in after '08 was mostly below average = Poor personnel decision. Jeremy Trueblood - Seems he was retained just to keep the "keep our own" mantra going.Big Cheetah - Career STer who should have been and could have been easily replaced with an UDFA = Poor personnel decision. Dashon Goldson - Developed a reputation based upon timely hits and physical tackles, but for his last few seasons in SF, he led the defense in missed tackles/penalties against, and was constantly exposed in coverage. All this was covered and masked by the fact that there were 4 all pro level players in their front 7 and had a ferocious pass rush. He was simply a thumpers who rode the success of Vic Fangio's defense. No surprise that he looked like an overly penalized Sean Jones in his first season in pewter and red. = Poor personnel decision. Sean Jones - A Dashon Goldson type safety who couldn't hit = Poor personnel decision.Tanard Jackson - putting even the slightest bit of hope and trust in a guy who couldn't keep his nose clean = Poor personnel decision.It isn't ever really about the money. Its about constantly signing unreliable players and pigeonholing yourself because of it. Had Dom moved on from Davin or Trueblood or Quincy Black, etc..then they would have had to fill that hole with a different player, yes, but it wouldn't have been the below average player that your were settling with. Rolling with these players in a sense prevented the Bucs from actually upgrading these positions because they were focused on other positions because of the assumption that "Davin will be fine at OG, Trueblood will be fine at RD, amd so forth."Fail.

      Like any GM he had some hits and misses.  Ultimately, he did not produce a winning organization.  It was disappointing watching so many of our draft picks fizzle out in the long-term.  As for Freeman, I blame Rah because he was the guy giving us inside information on the things that did him in.  He was a step up from Allen but never had the right coach.At least he is putting his opinions out there at ESPN.  Many don't do this because they don't want to damage relationships with inside sources (agents).  It will be interesting to see how he evaluates teams drafts (potential future employers) .

      Disregard the $...he still made poor personnel decisions when ot came to signing/re-signing players.Eric Wright - Below average CB brought in to be a 1b type CB = Poor personnel decision.Davin Joseph - Injury prone G whose performances and production in after '08 was mostly below average = Poor personnel decision. Jeremy Trueblood - Seems he was retained just to keep the "keep our own" mantra going.Big Cheetah - Career STer who should have been and could have been easily replaced with an UDFA = Poor personnel decision. Dashon Goldson - Developed a reputation based upon timely hits and physical tackles, but for his last few seasons in SF, he led the defense in missed tackles/penalties against, and was constantly exposed in coverage. All this was covered and masked by the fact that there were 4 all pro level players in their front 7 and had a ferocious pass rush. He was simply a thumpers who rode the success of Vic Fangio's defense. No surprise that he looked like an overly penalized Sean Jones in his first season in pewter and red. = Poor personnel decision. Sean Jones - A Dashon Goldson type safety who couldn't hit = Poor personnel decision.Tanard Jackson - putting even the slightest bit of hope and trust in a guy who couldn't keep his nose clean = Poor personnel decision.It isn't ever really about the money. Its about constantly signing unreliable players and pigeonholing yourself because of it. Had Dom moved on from Davin or Trueblood or Quincy Black, etc..then they would have had to fill that hole with a different player, yes, but it wouldn't have been the below average player that your were settling with. Rolling with these players in a sense prevented the Bucs from actually upgrading these positions because they were focused on other positions because of the assumption that "Davin will be fine at OG, Trueblood will be fine at RD, amd so forth."Fail.

      Left out Michael Clayton.Also we only have those same scouts because it was too late in the process to fire them. Licht will likely clean house after the draft.

      Clayton was Allen no?

      No. Resigning Mike Clayton was one of Dominik first moves.

      Ouch!!

      If L & L thinks he’s the pick, which wouldn’t surprise me, I’d be happy. Teddy has been considered a top pick for two years straight, and he’s produced against top competition since high school in Miami. Here’s the original summary on Teddy from NFL.com:

      A calculated, football-smart, precision-matchup rhythm passer, Bridgewater would be best suited entering a warm-weather or dome environment such as those most common in the South divisions. Would stand to benefit heavily from operating a short, dink-and-dunk rhythm passing game. Compensates for a lack of elite arm talent and prototype measureables with the intangibles and football intelligence that could elevate the other 52 players around him. Instinctive passer with the laser-beam determination to become a Pro Bowl-caliber passer in the right system.

      Dom’s view is interesting as someone said because his view is that colored by what our scouts told him.  The odd thing is that no one else sees inaccuracy. The only limit the “amateurs” on the web or the former players who reviewed him see in Teddy is deep ball arm strength which they rightly point out is awfully similar to the Brady problem he had when he came out.

      I don't completely disagree with you because I've thought highly of Bridgewater for a while, but many of the former scouts and players in the media previously liked Brady Quinn, Brian Brohm, Jimmy Clausen, Matt Barkley, and others the actual NFL people were pretty emphatic they weren't impressed by them. The only QB prospect the fans expected to go in the top 5 who dropped and actually ended up being good was Rodgers and that is coming up on ten years ago.

      I think you're using a little bit of hindsight to say all the players that didn't turn out to be good weren't very highly thought of in the first place. Don't forget a week before the 2011 draft Mel Kiper said "If Jimmy Clausen is not a successful quarterback in the NFL, I'm done. That's it. I'm out." We all know too many QBs get overdrafted. It's extremely rare a QB gets underdrafted. It's possible this is all smoke and Bridgewater will go #3 overall to Jacksonville. But it's very possible if he drops, there's a good reason.

      Yes, Kiper hung on until the end, but the reason no one else liked him is they eventually figured out he wasn’t good, like what might be happening with Bridgewater right now. It wasn’t always like that. Here’s a Nolan Nawrocki mock from January of 2010 and he has Clausen going #13 overall. http://www.profootballweekly.com/2010/01/30/mock-draft-defensive-tackles-dominate Here's Don Banks in March predicting Clausen to go #14 overall. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2010/writers/don_banks/03/04/mock.draft2/index.html

      The article is very relevant to us, much more than all these other rumors.  MD says he had these conversations with Tampa scouts, and last time I checked, we still have the same scouts.Until Licht can reshape the front office, he'll be leaning on those scouts, especially in the coming draft.

      very interesting

      I would not read too much into that. Licht is a scout himself. He is not completely clueless like Dominik was.I am sure Licht isnt going to be influenced by any bogus analysis because he can just check it himself.

      Mark Dominik: Teddy Bridgewater’s problems go beyond Pro DayPosted by Michael David Smith on April 18, 2014, 5:43 PM EDT Former Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater’s draft stock has appeared to decline dramatically in recent weeks, as a disappointing Pro Day has led to talk that he’s not the potential No. 1 overall pick that he was proclaimed to be during the 2013 season. But one NFL personnel man says that in reality, Bridgewater’s stock was never that high to begin with.Mark Dominik, the former Buccaneers general manager who now serves as an analyst for ESPN, said on NFL Live that he doesn’t believe Bridgewater’s Pro Day is a problem so much as his skinny frame, as well as the fact that Bridgewater didn’t always look like an elite passer on tape.“There were things you saw on tape when you watched him,” Dominik said. “Something that scouts internally, we talked about it in Tampa with Teddy Bridgewater last year. Is he really the premiere quarterback? I like the young man, I think he’s a quality individual, he’s got character and leadership and those things. But this is a quarterback, and you’re judged by what quarterback you draft, and I think Teddy Bridgewater might not have all the pieces you’re looking for.Dominik indicated that if teams with Top 5 picks like the Texans, Jaguars and Browns are interested in Bridgewater, their interest is in hoping Bridgewater falls all the way out of the first round and is still available early in the second round. That’s a long fall from where most people thought Bridgewater would be drafted.http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/04/18/mark-dominik-teddy-bridgewaters-problems-go-beyond-pro-day/Something about the guy just doesn't pass the eyeball test with me.

      Feel the same way.  Not that I am that interested in any evaluation by Dominic but obviously he has talked to scouts and they seem to see the same thing. Great Kid High Character Leadership but.... ::)

      Dominik predicts a slide for ManzielPosted by Mike Florio on April 18, 2014, 9:30 PM EDTTeddy Bridgewater isn’t the only 2014 quarterback prospect who received a dire prognosis from former Buccaneers G.M. Mark Dominik on Friday.  Via Rotowold, Dominik also had some bad news for Johnny Manziel.Dominik, who now works for ESPN, said on the air that Manziel “will fall a little more than people think” in the draft.This assessment presumes that a consensus currently exists as to where Manziel will go.  It doesn’t.As time passes, it seems less likely the Texans would use the first overall pick in the draft on Manziel.  After that, it gets fuzzy.  Could a team spring in front of Jacksonville (No. 3) and Cleveland (No. 4) to get Manziel with the No. 2 selection currently held by the Rams?  Possibly.If he gets past No. 2 (and he likely will), the hot spots become Jacksonville, Cleveland, Oakland at No. 5 (very unlikely), Tampa Bay at No. 7, Minnesota at No. 8, and Tennessee at No. 11.The Cowboys at No. 16 could be very intrigued by Manziel.  Perhaps sufficiently intrigued to trade up.If Manziel makes it past the first half of the round, the question then becomes whether a team from round two would trade up in front of the Browns at No. 26, if the Browns don’t take a quarterback at No. 4.  After the Browns, it then becomes possible if not probable that a team springs into the first round, where a four-year contract and a one-year option would apply.We’d be shocked if Manziel isn’t taken in the first round.  His actual placement in round one, whatever it may be, won’t be a surprise.http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2014/04/18/dominik-predicts-a-slide-for-manziel/Dom is definitely unafraid to put his name out there!!

      One thing certain there are NO sure things in this years draft. That being said due to 98 underclassman declaring there will be players that should have been taken in the first round showing up in the 3rd and 4th round. Personally, unless I had the luxury of just drafting a 3rd down specialist I wouldn't touch Clowney with a 10 foot pole.  The kid is lazy and only interested in one big dollar score!  After that I expect him to act more like a 15 year over the hill veteran who is just there to collect a paycheck like many NFL busts.

      Teddy Bridgewater – LouisvilleHe has a strong arm and throws a nice tight ball, but he lacks accuracy and anticipation. Evaluators want to see a quarterback make a throw before his receivers cut. Bridgewater seldom does that. Too often you see his receiver waiting on the ball. While he can get away with that in college, it won’t happen in the NFL.Another thing that is a huge concern is his accuracy on deeper throws. There are a number of throws on tape over 20 yards where he isn’t close to completing the pass. The last thing that concerns me is that while he started off the 2013 season very strong, his play leveled off. It wasn’t until their bowl game that he came back with a consistent performance.
