‘Several teams’ think Louisville junior Teddy Bridgewater is overrated


Bridgewater will mature into an elite NFL quarterback.

According to NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah, “several teams” don’t think Louisville junior Teddy Bridgewater is good enough to be taken in the first round.

The 21-year-old Bridgewater formally announced two weeks ago that he plans to enter the draft.

Bridgewater, who starred in December’s 36-9 rout of Miami in the Russell Athletic Bowl, finished the season with 31 touchdowns, against four interceptions, for 3,970 yards.

Blessed with a tremendous arm and great mobility, Bridgewater also completed an astounding 71.0% of his 427 attempts.

Most importantly, the 2013 Sugar Bowl MVP again proved to be a natural leader who can quickly sense pressure in the pocket.

Granted, there is not a team in the American Athletic Conference that will ever be confused with the 1985 Chicago Bears on defense.

Still, Bridgewater was utterly brilliant over 39 contests as a Cardinal and his performances can’t be overlooked.

The Houston Texans will consider selecting Bridgewater, Blake Bortles, Johnny Manziel, Brett Hundley and Derek Carr with the top overall pick.

However, after wisely running from the “Derby City,” expect Teddy Bridgewater to shake Roger Goodell’s hand and relocate to Houston this May.

Apparently, Daniel Jeremiah has spoken with “several teams” that don’t know how to evaluate talent.
