    You guys thinking Sproles relied on speed to score or gain yards are full of it.

    He's a shifty and quick RB who thrives in open space especially on passing downs. Mismatch against any RB and most safeties due to his quickness not speed.

    A lot of you claiming to have football knowledge really are showing your true colors.

    Not really, you just said two completely different things back to back. You said "one can dream" about Bridgewater and Sproles being on the Jags, then "one can dream" about them landing outside the division. Which do you dream of?

    You said Clowney and Watt would crush TB and Sproles in J ville (one could dream)

    it will not be that east

    You said that bridgewater and sproles won't be in the division (one could only dream)

    The jags aren't passing up Bridgewater, especially if we get clowney

    I'm sure Sproles is itching at the chance to come to a 2-14 team :p The Texans would have to over pay him to entice him to come here.

    Ah gotcha. Well it would be that easy because a beast of a pass rush plus a small framed QB that performs the 3 cone drill slower than the statue that is Blake Bortles equals a broken QB.

    I know....you're Bridgewater super fan guy. It's okay, keep the dream alive, it'll be shattered soon enough.

    " small framed QB that performs the 3 cone drill slower than the statue that is Blake Bortles equals a broken QB. "

    You probably thought Montana and Brady wouldn't amount to much

    To slow, to frail

    Screw the football IQ, screw the accuracy, screw the poise

    We don't need that here, just be 6'5 and throw out the park

    Ha, true.

    Can't do that.

    Nice weapon to have but yeah, probably not here.

    Montana struggled with injury his entire career....how old are you?

    Anyway, keep the dream alive while you can, reality will set in all too soon and before you know it, you'll be wondering how you could have been so wrong.

    I never said that he was a bad QB, just that he struggled with injuries his entire career, and Teddy Bridgewater isn't anywhere near that good. It's a really unhealthy delusion.

    Wrong to think that the Texans could make the right decision and take Bridgewater?????

    Not saying Bridgewater is as good

    but they have a lot of similar qualities in their playing style

    LOL SMH. I can't wait for this draft to be over. The Manziel and Bridgewater fans are absolutely nuts.

    I think Sproles would be a great addition to the Texans or just about any team as far as that goes. My main concern is having both Sproles and Foster would have to much money tied up at rb.

    Your sleeping on Bridgewater, one day you'll wake up to a resounding clap of thunder and realize what I have been saying

    Vince Young was:

    Lazy
    Emotionally unstable
    Wouldn't fix his release and attempt to grow in the game

    These are things I saw a mile away, really were magnified in the pros
