How Good Is Shemar Bridges?

There is no information about Shemar Bridges in either the Pro Football Reference or the College Football Reference reference books. He was not profiled by, a website that keeps tabs on every draft prospect.

The pathologically detailed “The Beast” draft guide by Dane Brugler did include Bridges, but only as the 178th best receiver in this class. Aside from that, the Draft Industrial Complex has been quite silent. The most noteworthy attention Bridges has received is an interview with Damond Talbot of the Draft Diamonds website in June 2021.

How Good Is Shemar Bridges?

One of the few players from a historically black college or university (HBCU) in the NFL, the Fort Valley State alum signed as an undrafted free agent with the Ravens and is now hoping to make the squad.

Bridges played in the inaugural Legacy Bowl, a game that gives players from lesser-known HBCUs the chance to showcase their skills to NFL teams. The game took place in New Orleans.

In addition, he helped organize the first-ever HBCU scouting combine, an event that gives college football players who weren’t invited to the NFL scouting combine an opportunity to show off their talents to professional scouts.

Bridges may be on the cusp of shocking many with his play against the Tennessee Titans in his preseason debut. In Baltimore’s 23-10 victory, he caught all five passes thrown his him for a total of 62 yards and a touchdown, two of which were exceptional grabs.

Bridges went up high to catch a ball from Anthony Brown Jr. for 38 yards with 2:10 remaining in the third quarter.

Near the end of the first half, Bridges scored on a fade pass from Tyler Huntley that covered 14 yards.

We can’t predict Bridges’s future success, but if he keeps making plays like this, his new NFL team will have to seriously consider cutting ties with him despite the Ravens’ perennial receiver dearth.
