When it comes to the 2014 NFL Draft, Teddy Bridgewater has the eyes and attention of every team on football’s biggest stage. 20 NFL scouts, including the general managers of both the Jacksonville Jaguars and Pittsburgh Steelers, attended his appearance on national television against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Louisville.
On all accounts, Bridgewater has kept his intentions for the upcoming spring’s draft to himself. When asked about what his plans were after this season at Louisville were, Teddy simply said, “I can’t predict the future right now. I’m just living in the moment. I’m just taking it one day at a time and enjoying my time here at the University of Louisville. Whatever happens down the road, that just happens.”
Someone close to Bridgewater, however, had a different thought process. In a feature done by Sports Illustrated, Bridgewater’s mother, Rose Murphy, drops a hint that her son will likely forego his final season of eligibility at Louisville to take his talents to the NFL.
“The reality is that we are hoping and believing that he has a good season, and after that he’ll do what he needs to do to prepare to go to the draft.”
If his mother is right, Bridgewater will likely be a top three pick come April.
