2014 NFL Draft rumors: Browns could be eyeing Teddy Bridgewater at No. 26 overall


Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has been falling down draft boards since a below average Pro Day, and we will finally learn just how far he has fallen in a few days when the 2014 NFL Draft gets underway.

Bridgewater is reportedly now viewed as a borderline first-round pick, but if he is available in the 20′s when the Cleveland Browns are on the clock with their second of two picks in the first round.

“If Browns go QB-less at No. 4 and Teddy Bridgewater is waiting there at No. 26, don’t be surprised if Cleveland grabs him. Scouts like him,” Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network wrote on Twitter.

The Browns could always swing for the fences with Johnny Manziel at No. 4 overall, but if they choose to go with someone like wide receiver Sammy Watkins or Mike Evans, Bridgewater being available in the final third of the round will be a best-case scenario for Cleveland.
