Outlook
Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater put an exclamation point on a fabulous career for the Cardinals, throwing for nearly 4,000 yards in 2013. The Miami, Fla., product hit the ground running for Louisville, playing in all 13 games as a freshman. Bridgewater was named Big East Rookie of the Year for his efforts, thus beginning the start of an illustrious career. Over his three years under center, Bridgewater's numbers constantly improved, as he completed a career-high 71 percent of his passes last season. The Cardinals ranked 16th in the country in total offense in 2013, and the junior's 3970 yards through the air placed him 10th in the NCAA. He finished fifth in the nation in passing efficiency with a 171.1 mark.

Bridgewater has already graduated from Louisville, and opted to turn professional after his junior season. His final game in a Louisville uniform proved memorable, as he went 35-for-45 for 447 yards and 3 TDs in a 36-9 whitewashing of Miami. He finished the year with 31 TDs to just four interceptions, the lowest total in his career.

Bridgewater is widely regarded as one of the top quarterbacks available in this year's draft, although is overall value as a prospect fluctuates with each publication.
