NFL Media analysts Daniel Jeremiah, Bucky Brooks and Mike Mayock haven't reached a consensus about the top quarterback prospect in the NFL draft, but they're getting closer.
After witnessing pro day workouts that saw Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel dazzle and Louisville's Teddy Bridgewater fizzle, Mayock moved Manziel to the top of his position rankings, ahead of UCF's Blake Bortles and Bridgewater, who fell to the No. 3 spot. Brooks' latest update of his Big Board included a similar shuffle, with Bridgewater falling from the draft's No. 5 overall prospect, ahead of Manziel, to the No. 10 overall spot. Brooks replaced Bridgewater with Manziel as his No. 5 overall prospect, up from the No. 6 position.
Unfazed by pro day results or any other factors, Jeremiah remained steadfast in maintaining Bridgewater as the draft's top quarterback prospect in his Tuesday update of the draft's top 50 prospects. Jeremiah dropped Bridgewater two spots to the No. 11 overall prospect in the draft but kept him ahead of No. 12 Manziel, who dropped two spots as well.
A few other notable shuffles by the analysts:
» The biggest jump forward in the rankings is that of Virginia Tech cornerback Kyle Fuller, who moved up seven spots to the No. 32 position. Perhaps Mayock's assessment, who has sung Fuller's praises throughout the offseason, is rubbing off on Jeremiah.
» Minnesota defensive lineman Ra'Shede Hageman took the biggest tumble, falling from No. 23 to No. 30.
» Brooks' latest look at the draft's top 25 prospects didn't include as much movement as Jeremiah's list. In fact, Bridgewater's five-spot tumble to No. 10 was the biggest. Notable, however, was the initial entry of Auburn defensive end Dee Ford on the list. Brooks slotted Ford as the No. 24 player in the draft, replacing Hageman, who dropped out of Brooks' top 25.
» So where do Brooks and Jeremiah differ most? Probably Alabama linebacker C.J. Mosley, who is Jeremiah's No. 9 overall prospect and sits on the bubble outside of Brooks' top 25.
