    The 2013 draft class will forever be remembered as the “Year of the Anti-Quarterback”. Teams refused to value the top quarterbacks in the class as franchise-level talents despite multiple showing that ability in college.

    With just one quarterback going in the 1st round and another in the 2nd, the eight or so quarterback-needy teams delayed the inevitable search for a franchise quarterback in 2013, putting added pressure on the 2014 class.

    Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater’s impressive freshman and sophomore year is what has lead him to be the top draft eligible quarterback in the 2014 class (if he chooses to declare). San Jose State’s David Fales has been the recipient of national exposure in recent weeks, but the non-BCS prospect still has ample work to do before he’s a 1st round talent.

    Bridgewater Wows with Athleticism/Arm, Surprises with Composure
    One of the best dual-threat quarterbacks in the country out of high school, Bridgewater landed at Louisville with coach Charlie Strong and immediately assumed a starter role for the Cardinals. Bridgewater has an MCL injury (senior year of high school) and wrist injury (late in 2012 season), but other-wise seems built to withstand injuries in his career thanks to his composed running style and well-built (and still developing) frame across his body.

    The Big East Rookie of the Year in 2011 and Offensive Player of the Year in 2012, Bridgewater already begun to grow his reputation has not only one of the most explosive quarterbacks in the country, but an SEC-level talented quarterback after his demolition of the Florida Gators in the Sugar Bowl.

    Bridgewater most obvious and exciting talent as a quarterback is his athleticism. A natural mover in the open field, Bridgewater stays in athletic position moving in and out of the pocket, and has the quick feet to make substantial gains in the open field. Along with his natural running ability, Bridgewater is able to generate top velocity on his throws, both when working across the field in the 5-15 yard range, and getting enough depth on his vertical throws.
