Josh Gordon would take Teddy Bridgewater at No. 4

Browns receiver Josh Gordon has said he’s “pretty sure” the Browns will take a quarterback with the fourth overall pick in the 2014 draft.

Gordon is even more sure of which quarterback that would be, if he were the one to make the selection.

In a video on NFL.com, Gordon is pressed to make a selection.  And he eventually does, albeit reluctantly:  Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Based on Bridgewater’s lackluster, glove-free Pro Day, there’s a chance Bridgewater will still be available when the Browns use their second pick in round one, the 26th overall selection acquired from the Colts for running back Trent Richardson.

As Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer recently pointed out on PFT Live, the Browns could be leaning toward taking Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr, whether at No. 4 or No. 26.  And since we never pasted in this space the video of Cabot talking Browns, here it is.

  1. The Vikings will draft the best qb in the draft.the rest of the teams drafting qbs wish they had the front office that has found as much talent as the vikings.Cleveland is where qbs go to die.SKOL

  2. If players want to go where there’s no Super Bowl trophies to look at from the past, and will be no Super Bowl trophies to look at in the future, they should hope to get drafted by the Vikings.

  3. Says the guy that on NFL network a couple of weeks ago said he would draft Johnny Manziel, players in on smokescreen now?

  4. I like that he had an answer. Everyone is entitled to their opinions, and it get’s SO old hearing guys doing the PC thing and giving no direct answer. JG seems to march to a different drum and I like that. Now if he only was on my team it would be even better!

  5. Gordon is due for a big payday if he has a season like his last. Last thing he wants is another stud receiver taking his balls. I can understand his thinking, but its rather selfish. Pad his #s and get to the bank, either in Cleveland or better yet somewhere else.

  6. Receiver is the last position Cleveland needs with the #4 pick, I don’t think he needs to worry about that

  7. One good year and he’s a gm ? Doesn’t seem like a team guy and if he fails another drug test he’s done pretty sure id let someone else be the mouth piece of the organization

  8. There are a lot worse QBs on NFL rosters that has never had the success Vince Young has had …(NFL Rookie of the Year, 2 Pro Bowls, Playoff experience and Mobility). Vince has a career winning record of 31-19…
    I hope some team gives this quarterback a try-out, even if it’s for third string…
    GM/Coach, sit down and talk to this guy…I think he can help….

  9. All these QBs will probably be overdrafted. But who can blame teams for it? If you get Clowney and he ends up being the greatest DE of all time, your overall team still isn’t significantly better.

    If you draft a QB and he ends up being the 8th best QB in the league for a decade, you’re probably a playoff contender every season.

  10. Josh needs to shut his pie hole and just do what he does best and that’s catch passes.

    I’m sure the Browns will find a way to screw up the pick without any input from Josh.

    Based on the way he played last year, it doesn’t really matter who is throwing the ball to him….unfortunately they can’t throw it to him on every play.

  11. Unless by some odd chance Manziel is still there at No. 8 (which he won’t be), Carr will go to Minnesota. Cleveland will take Bridgewater and eventually regret it. His style of play won’t last long in the NFL. In the end, Carr will turn out to be the star QB in this draft.

  12. gordon nice way to have hoyer back there lol

    but yes they need a qb but not with the 4th pick

    bridgewater is over rated he will slip down

    i like mack at lb for them or sammy watkins another wr they def need
    and pick a qb in 2nd rd or trade back into the first

  13. Gordon is a company man and isn’t going to give a straight answer. Yes they should draft one but my guess is it will come later in the first. Josh knows the ball just has to get to him and he does the rest. If he repeats what he did last yr, no doubt he is the best in the game. I believe he has matured and learned from the past. Watch out for the Browns because they are going to surprise a lot of people. Pettine knows D and what was already good is only going to get better.

  14. Whoever the vikings select will turn out to be the clown of the draft , but who cares they gave greg jennings 9 million a year lol

  15. So Bortles, who has a career completion percentage of only 50% for passes 10 yards and over (and tends to float long balls), has a great “pro-day” and should go #1.

    Bridgewater, reads defenses, changes plays at the line of scrimmage, can make every throw and has an overall great body of work against actual opponents – has a so-so “pro-day” and he’s falling?

    Just take Manziel already, and let the chips fall where they may. It’s not like you don’t have a 15 year history of lousy #1 picks or anything…
