NFL Coach Compares Teddy Bridgewater to Willie Beamen of Any Given Sunday

As prospects prepare for the NFL draft, they have to handle a variety of comparisons. Former Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater has received a bit of an odd comparison.

Most quarterbacks would love to be compared to Peyton Manning or Joe Montana. Being likened to a quarterback from a movie probably isn't the most flattering comparison.

According to Bleacher Report's Matt Miller, one AFC North coach doesn't appear to be too high on Bridgewater:

Yes, Willie Beamen from Any Given Sunday. That's an odd comparison.

On the plus side, only one AFC North teamthe Cleveland Brownsappears to be in need of a quarterback early on in the draft. The Browns have the No. 4 pick in the draft, which makes them a realistic landing spot for the former Cardinals star—unless coach Mike Pettine was the one who made those comments.

Bridgewater has been in the running to be the No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft since before last college football season even started. However, his stock has dropped a bit since last year's draft concluded. Now, he is being compared to a fictional quarterback.
