This week we are looking at mock draft from Fansided’s Erik Lambert, of the NFL Mocks” href=”http://nflmocks.com/2013/12/24/2014-nfl-mock-draft-update-c-j-mosley-falls-bears/” target=”_blank”>NFL Mocks website.
In Lambert’s first mock draft of the season he’s projecting the Houston Texans to draft No. 1 overall and selecting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater of Louisville.
Lambert wrote about Bridgewater:
“Case Keenum was a nice experiment but he is not a starting quarterback in the pros. Teddy Bridgewater is. The Houston Texans need to fill that position badly, and the junior is the most physically and mentally gifted in his class.”
I agree with Lambert in saying the experiment of Keenum has been nice, but I also think if given the right time and possibly an entire offseason as a starting quarterback Keenum could possibly become “decent” starting QB in the NFL. Do I believe Keenum can lead the Texans to a Super Bowl in the future … no.
As for Bridgewater being a a NFL caliber starting QB right now, I’m still not sure, but I’d rather go with him rather than Keenum as of today. I believe the Texans should draft a QB in the draft, but the question is should they maybe wait until the second round to find their next franchise QB?
I saw that because there are a lot of quality QBs in this draft that can be taken in the second round or not with the No. 1 overall selection.
Bridgewater is the safest pick of any of the QBs in the draft with the No. 1 pick, but there is a lot to think about each day we get closer to the drfat.
So for this week, I like Bridgewater, but there are still a few months remaining and I want the Texans to go over every option they have.
