With a plethora of differing evaluations on the top quarterback prospects, there could be as many as four or as few as zero quarterbacks selected among the top 10 picks of the 2014 NFL draft.

Teddy Bridgewater ranks as the No. 1 quarterback and prospect in this year’s draft class, and the second-best quarterback draft prospect (behind Andrew Luck) since 2001. He is NFL-ready and has the intelligence and skill set needed to be a franchise signal-caller. A team needing a quarterback should not pass on his talent, which is why I feel the Houston Texans should select him with the first pick in this year’s draft.

Before the Senior Bowl begins in earnest with practices on Monday, the biggest contest on the pre-draft all-star game schedule thus far came Saturday with the East-West Shrine Game, televised on NFL Network from St. Petersburg, Fla.

The East won Saturday’s game, 23-13, but the final score was essentially meaningless. Instead, the game served as the culmination of a week-long opportunity for 2014 draft prospects to showcase their talents to NFL coaches, scouts and executives in hopes of being among this year’s 256 draft selections.

Which players made impressions, positive or negative, in Saturday’s game? While it’s hard to make any big takeaways from the game, as the practices actually hold more value in the all-star game evaluation process, there were a players who might have made scouts want to go back and take another look at their tape, for better or for worse.

Looking at the list of prospects to focus on for the game alone makes this Bowl look like a complete mismatch. While Northern Illinois will be counting on Junior QB Jordan Lynch to continue his magical season into the post season, seemingly alone against a Florida State defense that is stacked with draft worthy prospects. If Northern Illinois is to make a game of it, they will have to neutralize Junior Bjoeren Werner, who is likely to be a top 5 pick assuming he declares. N Illinois does catch a break as talented senior DE/Linebacker Brandon Jenkins and Cornellius Carradine will miss the game due to injury. The Huskies are the more motivated team here trying to prove they belong. That may be enough to keep things close, but in the end look for talent to win out. (more…)
