Since the very beginning of the college football season, many from Sports Illustrated to Fox Sports to ESPN predicted that the University of Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater would somehow turn from Teddy Bridgewater into Teddy Heisman. During his junior season as starting QB of the Cards, Bridgewater put up decent statistics, ranking top-10 in completions (303 completions, ranked 9th), completion percentage (71.0%, ranked 2nd), yards per attempt (9.3 yards per attempt, ranked 10th) and QB rating (171.1 rating, ranked 5th) in the NCAA. However, after recent pro day workouts, many are starting to reconsider Bridgewater’s ranking amongst QBs in this year’s draft class. Before the combine and pro day workouts, many had Bridgewater going early first round, perhaps even number one. Unfortunately, those types of rankings are few and far between as of late.
Due to Bridgewater’s lowered draft stock, I have begun to question whether or not Bridgewater actually deserves the criticisms he has drawn from NFL analysts and scouts alike. In this edition of 2014 NFL Draft Scouting Reports, I’ll be reviewing the dynamic play-maker, Teddy Bridgewater. Through my game/film breakdown, career background and player evaluation, I will be able to fit Bridgewater into what I feel is the best place for him to be in this draft.
