School: Louisville.
Measurements: 6-foot-2, 214 pounds.

Lowdown: Good athlete, moves well and can make plays outside pocket. Good arm strength. Has composure in the pocket. Excellent intangibles. Good work ethic. He does not have a thick build. Not real broad shoulders or big hips. Smaller than ideal hands. Deep accuracy not elite. Bridgewater started as a true freshman. He had a great sophomore year, throwing for 3,718 yards and earning MVP honors in a Sugar Bowl win over Florida. As a junior in 2013, he led the Cards to a 12-1 season with the only loss to Central Florida (38-35). He went 27-8 as a starter and completed 68.4 percent of his passes for his career. He wasn’t awesome at his pro day, but so what? Long-term durability is bit of a concern.

He said it: “The biggest thing I think is my accuracy. This past season, I was able to complete 71 percent of my passes. My third-down passing completion percentage was pretty much off the charts, my pocket presence, I’m a competitor. Each day I go out there and I’m eager to learn, remain a student of the game, and I think that right there just separates me.” - Teddy Bridgewater.
