Bridgewater's measurement officially at the combine is 6'2 & 1/8 inches, 214 pounds, and hand size is 9.25. So pretty much the media got every single thing wrong. But what kills me is the way they reported it. Instead of eating their crow and write an article about Bridgewater's result, they instead just mentioned it at the bottom of an article about Manziel as just honorable mention. With all the hoopla about Bridgewater's phantom lack of size you'd think it would need an article on its own to report it. For a supposed #1 overall prospect, just like Manziel, you'd think this would be headline, again, just like Manziel. But instead you have:
Other notable measurements:
» Bridgewater: 6-2 1/8, 214 pounds, 9 1/4 hands.
» Bortles: 6-5, 232 pounds.
By the way, Manziel measured at 5'11 & 3/4, 205 pounds, huuuuge hands 9.625. So much huuuger than 9.25
Now, on to the 40 yard dash. Get ready for some "surprises?"
Are they trying to keep Bridgewater out of the the AFC South? Him there could create some discomfort for their god Andrew Luck. They wanna keep that division as uncompetitive for Luck as possible. They seem to wanna ship him to Cleveland. They want both the Jags and Texans to pass on him. Two QB needy teams passing on a QB that is compared to Aaron Rodgers? lol. That certainly makes sense.
Now that Bridgewater's size(both hand and weight) is of no concern, what angle does the media go to now? Could Bortles save the day?
