02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Combine: From 40 times to Fritos, 10 Bold Predictions: 5. Teddy will be ready. Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater won't be fat but after officially being listed at 6-3, 205 pounds for the Cardinals throughout his junior season, expect him to weigh in significantly heavier in Indianapolis, easing some of the concerns scouts have about his ability to hold up physically in the NFL. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Combine: Bridgewater may throw; Carr waiting until Pro Day...Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater hasn't yet decided whether he's going to participate in the athletic testing -- including passing -- at the 2014 Combine. Bridgewater, NFLDraftScout.com's top-rated quarterback and No. 3 overall prospect, told Jim Corbett of USA Today that he'll confer with his agent Kennard McGuire and decide whether to throw "when the times comes." Bridgewater could help his stock simply by reassuring scouts of his size. He was officially listed by the Cardinals at 6-foot-3, 205 pounds and is especially slim in his lower half, leading to concerns about whether he'll be able to withstand the punishment of an NFL pass rush.
Bridgewater showed toughness and durability throughout his three starting seasons at Louisville and completed 68.4 percent of his passes for 9,817 yards and 72 touchdowns against just 24 interceptions over his career. In an era of inflated statistics due to relatively simple spread offenses, Bridgewater's production stands out as he played in a pro-style scheme in which he took a high percentage of snaps from under center and was asked to make adjustments at the line of scrimmage. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
02/20/14 - 2014 NFL Draft Scout Pre-Combine Top 64 Prospects: 3. *Teddy Bridgewater, QB, Louisville, 6-2, 205, 4.67, 1...His impressive production, passing accuracy and leadership abilities helped rate him as top QB prospect by NFLDdraftScout.com analysts, but there are a few concerns. His frame seems slight and even if he bulks up, durability might be an issue as he lacks that innate feel and smooth athleticism to move in and out of pocket. But, then, that might describe Tom Brady. A low release point -- from ear height -- may become an issue against taller, athletic defensive fronts. - Frank Cooney, The Sports Xchange
02/19/14 - 2014 NFL Combine: 10 prospects with the most to gain/lose: 1. All 19 Quarterbacks...From Teddy Bridgewater's hand size to Derek Carr's accuracy during passing drills, every quarterback invited to the Combine has a lot to gain or lose this week. Manziel won't throw, but his interviews are paramount, whether the questions are football-related or not. Central Florida's Blake Bortles will compete in every exercise and needs to show accurate ball placement during passing drills. On the training table, LSU's Zach Mettenberger and Georgia's Aaron Murray are both in the midst of rigorous rehabs, battling back from ACL injuries – how close are they to returning to the field? And then of course, the exact height-weight measurements for the underclassmen: Will Manziel get above six-foot? Will Bridgewater come in over 210-pounds? Just how tall is Bortles? Above all, the Combine is an opportunity for quarterbacks to perform on the big stage – who will separate himself? - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
01/03/14 - Bridgewater to Forgo Senior Season; Declares for NFL Draft...Bridgewater won 27 games in his three years as the starting quarterback for Louisville, including 12 wins in 2013, which tied a school record.

In leading the Cardinals to a 12-1 record, Bridgewater developed into one of the best quarterbacks in the nation. He opened the season by tying his career high with five touchdown passes in a 49-7 win over Ohio and four more in wins over Eastern Kentucky and FIU. He recorded seven 300-yard passing games and was a second team All-American Athletic Conference selection this season.

In earning Most Valuable Player accolades in the win over the Gators, Bridgewater went 20-of-32 for 266 yards and two scores in a win over Florida. - Louisville football
