Why I hope Teddy isn't drafted #1

Scrutiny, That's why I hope Teddy is not drafted #1. I understand that it would be nice to see a Louisville athlete taken with the #1 overall pick in a major American sport (Insert Andrew Farrell taken No. 1 in MLS draft). I understand that it is something that he wants. And I don't think Teddy would shrink under the weight of that scrutiny. I just dont want him to go through it. Plain and simple. I don't want (as a cardinal fan) to hear all year long the constant disecting of his game. Of how he was a poor choice as the #1 overall pick. I would rather see him picked by the Browns and turn a consistantly terrible franchise into a super bowl contender. Honestly, I dont want to hear Skip Bayless speak another word period, but I espcially don't want to hear his constant over-exaggerated, off-the-wall, analysis of Bridgewater's game. The kid can play. Anyone who knows football can see that. I hope for his sake he gets the chance to play without the pressure of having to meet the expectations of pundits who would RATHER see him fail than to see him succeed. It's about time to mention something about Russell Wilson being selected 75th overall. My case and point exactly. Andrew Luck has performed well, and Robert Griffin had a fine rookie season (I discount this past season due to poor coaching and injuries), but it certainly seems the pressure has influenced the play of both players to some degree. Do I think Andrew Luck is and will continue to be a great QB in the NFL? Yes I do. And do I think Teddy could be just as great if he is the #1 overall or if he is selected in the 3rd round? Yes, I certainly do. But I also am aware of the insane pressure that comes with being the #1 pick and the influence it COULD have on his game It's impossible in today's social media driven society to avoid scrutiny (unless you play for Coach Pitino). I hope for Teddy's sake he gets picked 75th. Seemed to work out well for the Seahawks.
