What the scouts are saying:

"A calculated, football-smart, precision-matchup rhythm passer, Bridgewater would be best suited entering a warm-weather or dome environment such as those most common in the South divisions." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)

"Comes from a pro-style offense at Louisville, and was among the nation's leaders in all passing categories when facing blitzes. Naturally steps through his progressions, and keeps his eyes focused downfield with defenders closing in on him. Can manipulate the defense with his eyes." (Dane Brugler, CBSSports.com)

"Bridgewater should go in the top 10 given his pocket-passing ability. He just isn't the elite quarterback prospect some have made him out to be. If Bridgewater lands in a nice spot with good coaching and talent around him, he could turn into a quality starting quarterback in the NFL. "(WalterFootball.com)
