Video: Teddy Bridgewater Joins ‘Numbers Never Lie’, Claims Pro Day Performance Was His Downfall

Every year, there is always at least one quarterback who starts the offseason ranked as one of the top NFL prospects in the country, but somehow falls out of favor by the time the actual draft rolls around.
