Early in the week, NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport warned us not to be surprised if the Cleveland Browns select Teddy Bridgewater with the second of their two first-round picks at No. 26 overall.

Browns scouts are high on the Louisville quarterback's skills, per Rapoport.

That affinity for Bridgewater isn't limited to the scouting department.

The Plain Dealer's Mary Kay Cabot reports that general manager Ray Farmer is "enamored" of Bridgewater and will strongly consider pulling the trigger on him at No. 26 overall.

Coach Mike Pettine also spoke of Bridgewater in glowing terms at the NFL Annual Meeting last month.

"I think he's extremely accurate," Pettine said. "You can tell he's a very cerebral quarterback. He understands the game very well. Understands coverages, that kind of jumps off the tape at you. To me, he seems very unfazed by things. He plays very well under pressure. He's a guy that's NFL-ready.
