01:35 PM ET 01.11 | Louisville Cardinals quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is widely considered to be the top signal-caller in the 2014 NFL Draft class. While many believe that Bridgewater will be the top quarterback selected later this year, there is some momentum building for Blake Bortles of UCF. However, when you see the comparisons that Bridgewater is receiving, it would be hard to pass up selecting him if he can live up to the hype. Specifically, Bridgewater is being compared to Green Bay Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who has established himself as one of the premier signal-callers in the league.

And yet Rodgers lasted until pick 21. The NFL draft is as much a crap shoot as anything going so we'll see how this guy shakes out.

Will be interesting to see. I was under the impression Bortles was going to stay at college for another year.

Crap was right. SF who picked first chose Smith instead of Rodgers and all the other teams before GB thought there was something amiss with him. Dumb a GMs. I don't see TB as another AR though.

I remember reading all the great about VY and how he was the second coming. There were so many comparisons with great QBs and that he was in a league of his own, yadda yadda. Same for JaMarcus Russell and so many others.

Ya he actually passed for 40 yards on his knee's. Very impressive. Then after getting drafted he found: pizza, BBQ Chicken, beer, sausage, donut holes and donuts without holes.
His **** was wider than a Minnesota Snow shovel. Word is he clocked in at over 300 pounds. Thats why he delayed signing to take off some weight. What a waste of freeking money

TB is still a risk because you never know who is going to work out (crap shoot). I remember V. Young looking great in College, so where is he now?

When you're the top QB in the draft you're always going to be compared to the top QBs in the NFL... doesn't mean you actually deserve it.

Biggest knock on Nick Foles was his accuracy... and he's currently got the lowest INT % in league history.

I don't believe there's a GM alive who knows how to draft quarterbacks.

Indy's did pretty well - as did GB's, come to think of it.

TB compared to AR

two hands check
two legs check
one head check
want to play QB check
proven record not so much

Complete guess work. Even a blind squirrel finds a nut.

The players are in the draft. Someone is going to end up with them. Doesn't mean the guy who found him knew any better than the guys who didn't.

Somehow I just can't see an African-American doing "Da Bears" commercials ...
