Teddy Bridgewater has had an uneventful predraft process as the former Louisville Cardinals quarterback has gone from a potential No. 1 overall pick of the Houston Texans to possibly sliding all the way out of the first round entirely after a disappointing pro day.
The most interesting aspect of Bridgewater’s offseason came today when The Bleacher Report’s draft expert Matt Miller tweeted that one NFC North coach compared him to a Willie Beamen, the fictional character in Any Given Sunday.
I present you with the greatest QB comparison ever. An AFC North coach compared Bridgewater to…Willie Beaman. I’m not making this up.

Player comparisons are all over the place prior to drafts, whether it’s the NFL, NBA, MLB or NHL, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a draft prospect compared to a fictional character before, so if nothing else, Bridgewater has that going for him.
No word on if he has any plans to release a video quite like Steamin’ Willie Beamen did.
