2014 NFL Draft rumors: Teddy Bridgewater the best fit for Jacksonville Jaguars

As the 2014 NFL Draft rapidly approaches, we still have not the slightest idea where any of the big three at the quarterback position will end up. But, if NFL Network draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah had a say, Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater would be the new savior of the Jacksonville Jaguars organization, simply because he’s the best overall option at the position of anyone.

“In my opinion, the best fit is the best quarterback, and that’s Teddy Bridgewater in this draft class,” Jeremiah said. “He comes out of a pro system at Louisville. I’ve seen him under center. I know what I’m getting with him.

“This Jacksonville Jaguars offense needs a consistent football player,” he said. “He’s the most ready-made to play, and that’s why he’s the best fit for Jacksonville.”

This past week, the Jaguars re-signed Chad Henne to a new deal, but that still doesn’t mean that Bridgewater can’t come in, compete for the position immediately, and win it. Two years ago, Russell Wilson beat out a newly-paid Matt Flynn, and we all know how that turned out.
