NFL mock draft 2014: Teddy Bridgewater draft stock goes up at bowl game

NFL mock draft 2014 news was good for Teddy Bridgewater on Saturday (Dec. 28). In most 2014 NFL mock drafts, Bridgewater is the No. 1 overall selection. Against the Miami Hurricanes in the 2013 Russell Athletic Bowl, he showed exactly why that is the case on Saturday night. In the first half alone, he completed 19-of-26 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns.

Bridgewater was putting on a clinic against the Hurricanes and he carried that well into the second half. He led the Louisville Cardinals in impressive fashion and proved to many scouts that he has the skills to succeed at the next level. It has been clear to many analysts that he can do what he wants against unprepared defenses, but in this game he had to do it against a team that has been preparing for weeks. He obviously didn't miss a step in his own preparations.

In a recent CBS 2014 NFL mock draft, both college football experts had Bridgewater as the No. 1 overall selection by the Houston Texans. There is a disagreement about which quarterback should be the second one off the board and which one should be selected first overall if Teddy Bridgewater decides to stay in Louisville. One expert predicts it to be Johnny Manziel out of Texas A&M and the other projects Derek Carr from Fresno State to be the man.

Both experts predict four quarterbacks getting taken in first eight picks, with the other top choice becoming Blake Bortles of Central Florida. UCLA's Brett Hundley is another name that could become a top 10 pick if he commits.
