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.

    Didn’t he just say he thought that Manziel was the best QB prospect a couple days earlier on NFL.com?

    LOL. I would take Bustwater at No. 400.

    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

    After what he did last year, I don’t think Gordon much cares what quarterback is throwing to him.

    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.

    Way to show support for your teammate QB’s, Josh.

  7. shaner021 says: Apr 3, 2014 6:14 PM

    Gordon did just say he would take Manziel, not even a week ago.

  8. thestrategyexpert says: Apr 3, 2014 6:14 PM

    I was wrong, I thought he was picking Manziel when they are on the clock.

  9. goldback20 says: Apr 3, 2014 6:15 PM

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

  10. ravenswhat says: Apr 3, 2014 6:18 PM

    They would be foolish to draft a QB at 4. Someone is going to slip.

  11. dieselguy19 says: Apr 3, 2014 6:21 PM

    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!

  12. billsbackto81 says: Apr 3, 2014 6:22 PM

    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.

  13. antalicus says: Apr 3, 2014 6:40 PM

    trying to cover his tracks

  14. slaugin says: Apr 3, 2014 6:47 PM

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

  15. raiders85 says: Apr 3, 2014 6:49 PM

    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

  16. accipiterq says: Apr 3, 2014 6:52 PM

    I thought everyone was saying Hoyer showed some great growth until he got hurt?

  17. evansvc says: Apr 3, 2014 6:55 PM

    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….

  18. Matt dog from C-town says: Apr 3, 2014 6:57 PM

    Of course…..he wants a guy who delivers the ball from the Accurately from the pocket….with Manuel you have to work for the ball

  19. wecj3381wecj3381 says: Apr 3, 2014 7:08 PM

    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.

    Lucky for the Browns, Josh ain’t doing the picking.

  21. tccoats says: Apr 3, 2014 7:24 PM

    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.

  22. believeland1954 says: Apr 3, 2014 7:29 PM

    Keep’em guessing. Farmer is the man!

  23. duluthvikesfan says: Apr 3, 2014 7:34 PM

    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.

  24. sportsnut101 says: Apr 3, 2014 7:38 PM

    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

  25. nflcrimerankingscom says: Apr 3, 2014 7:39 PM

    Sammy Watkins!!!!

  26. jetfan74 says: Apr 3, 2014 7:59 PM

    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.

  27. kwjsb says: Apr 3, 2014 8:45 PM

    Good thing he isn’t making the pick, lord knows his decision making usually goes up in smoke.

  28. brownoholic says: Apr 3, 2014 9:01 PM

    So by Monday, I’m guessing he’ll say we should draft Bortles.

  29. khmer379 says: Apr 3, 2014 9:08 PM

    Where all this hate for my Vikings come from it not like we cheated or won any SB smh..

  30. rwhite84 says: Apr 3, 2014 11:35 PM

    Perhaps he was joking about Manziel, I mean he lacks so much things you look for in an NFL QB.

  31. crise40g says: Apr 4, 2014 12:22 AM

    Please Brownies, take a QB…ANY QB!

  32. artiesliver says: Apr 4, 2014 12:44 AM

    I BELIEVE THE CHILDREN OUR ARE FUTURE.

  33. jhtobias says: Apr 4, 2014 1:04 AM

    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

  34. harveyredman says: Apr 4, 2014 9:13 AM

    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…
