For whatever reason, the NFL Draft stock of former Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater has taken some serious hits. The hits are apparently so severe that some aren’t even considering him a lock for the first round anymore, much less the top 10.
So if this is the case, then those that are against the stock of Bridgewater falling and still believe that he’s an elite talent are beginning to suggest that some teams take advantage of this, and NFL Network’s Charles Davis thinks that the Jacksonville Jaguars should be one of those teams.
When the draft process began, the Jaguars were one of the teams supposedly interested in taking Bridgewater with their third overall pick. But now, Davis believes it they can cash in on those that are bashing Bridgewater by taking another top prospect at the top of the draft, and then trading back into the first round later on to grab Bridgewater as their potential future franchise QB.
"“To me, if I were Jacksonville, I would take one of these top position players — whether it’s Sammy Watkinsor whether it’s a Khalil Mack — and then I’d come back and trade my first pick in the second round back into the first round and go get Teddy Bridgewater.”"
If the indications going forward the next few weeks do suggest that Bridgewater will fall that far, the Jaguars could come out looking the biggest first round winners if they pull the trigger on a deal like this.
