Teddy Bridgewater to enter NFL Draft

Teddy Bridgewater has played his last game at Louisville.

While the quarterback had said in recent weeks that he still hadn't made up his mind about his future, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that Bridgewater will forego his senior season at Louisville and instead enter the NFL Draft.

At the moment both CBSSports.com draft analysts Rob Rang and Dane Brugler have Bridgewater projected as the top pick in the NFL Draft, going to the Houston Texans (who, coincidentally, are hiring a coach from the college ranks).

It can't be understated how important Teddy Bridgewater was to the Louisville program in his three years at the school. A four-star recruit out of Miami, Florida, Bridgewater led Louisville to a 30-9 record in his three seasons at the school, including two conference titles andthree bowl appearances. The highlight being a Sugar Bowl victory over Florida last season.

The impact he's had on the football program no doubt played a role in Louisville earning an invitation to the ACC in 2014.

Bridgewater finishes his career with 9,817 yards passing, 72 touchdowns and 24 interceptions.
