Amid the talk that his stock is rapidly dropping in the NFL Draft by some, former Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater still has a few weeks left to change teams’ minds, and he will do that with some upcoming visits, one of which includes a trip to see Bill O’Brien and the Houston Texans, according to NFL.com.
Bridgewater will meet with the Jaguars on Saturday and with the Texans next week, ESPN.com reports. It will be his second meeting with the Jaguars.
While at one time it was seen as a foregone conclusion by some that the Texans would take Bridgewater with their first overall pick, that more than likely is not the case anymore.
There is a possibility that the team will not use that top pick on a quarterback, rather they may use it on either defensive end Jadeveon Clowney or offensive tackle Greg Robinson, and then just take a signal caller in the second round, where some have now projected Bridegwater to go.
This meeting could be just to gauge some interest in taking Bridgewater with their first pick in the second round, if that is where he should fall to for whatever reason.
