Teddy Bridgewater NFL Draft Profile

Teddy Bridgewater, Junior, Quarterback, Louisville



Teddy Bridgewater's career at Louisville started off on the bench. Once he was given the reins to the starting job as a freshman though, he went on to win Big East conference Rookie of the Year. He was also named a freshman All-American by a number of publications. His sophomore season went even better. Throwing for 3,718 yards and 27 touchdowns on 68 percent completion while tossing only eight picks all year, Bridgewater led Louisville to a BCS Sugar Bowl win over the heavily favored Florida Gators. With another season came some more hardware: Big East offensive Player of the Year and Sugar Bowl MVP. It is pretty safe to assume that, had Teddy been eligible for last season's NFL draft, he could have vied for the number one overall selection.


Final Projection:

After this season, the junior QB will be eligible and he is the franchise quarterback prospect so many teams value and covet. Starting the new and rather weak American Athletic Conference, there is no reason to suspect Louisville and their quarterback won't have another excellent season. If that is the case, Teddy Bridgewater may be the only living soul who can knock South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney out of the number one spot in the 2014 NFL Draft. There is nothing more valuable to an NFL team with quarterback questions than someone who may be their future at that spot for many years to come.
