When you discuss the talent pool in the 2014 NFL Draft, one of the first names that comes up is Louisville Cardinals quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Many believe that Bridgewater, who is a junior, is the most talented signal-caller in this year’s draft class. However, he may not go pro.

Bridgewater has been weighing his decision on whether or not to enter the draft and he is still undecided about his future.

“I’ve been hearing all these stories that I’ve made a decision — I haven’t made a decision,” Bridgewater said, ESPN’s Brett McMurphy.  “I will talk to my mom and the coaches before making my decision.  I’m not leaning either way.”

Bridgewater is currently preparing for his team’s bowl game on Dec. 28, so he will still have plenty of time to weigh his options prior to the Jan. 15 deadline to declare. He hopes to make a decision within a few days after his final game of the season.

If Bridgewater returns to Louisville, it would be a big hit to this year’s quarterback class and it could encourage a player like UCF’s Blake Bortles to declare and take advantage of the opportunity to be a high draft selection, but it would benefit no one more than Fresno State’s Derek Carr.

Do you think Bridgewater will return to Louisville for his senior season or is he ready to make the jump to the NFL? Share your thoughts with us in the comments section below.
