It should come as no surprise that Teddy Bridgewater's name is the one that you are seeing at the top of this list.
The sophomore quarterback for the Louisville Cardinals is not only the most talented player on this list, but as you will see throughout the course of the 2012 season and the remainder of his collegiate career, he is also one of the most talented players in the nation.
Starting his true freshmen season a year ago as the backup, Bridgewater quickly worked his way into the starting job and finished out the season strong for the Cards.
He racked up 2,129 yards through the air with 14 touchdowns and also added another four with his feet.
With the team that head coach Charlie Strong has assembled around his highly talented QB, Bridgewater should have no problem going far beyond those numbers.
The Miami native has potential to become a household name this season, and others have started to notice as he was named earlier this preseason to the Davey O'Brien and Maxwell Award players to watch lists.
There were two main concerns with Bridgewater's game after last season: his turnovers and his size.
Well, he took notice and went ahead and bulked up 27 pounds since the end of last season to put him at an even 218 pounds to fill out his 6'3" frame.
The turnovers will be something we will all have to keep an eye out for, but given his youth, who can blame him for the 12 picks he had a year ago?
Bridgewater now has a year's experience under his belt with a good offensive line and great receivers; this will be a breakout season for the young man.
If all things go according to plan, this will also be a huge season for the entire Louisville Cardinals team, as they have their eyes set on a very achievable, perfect conference record.
With a pretty easy non-conference schedule, this could be a historic season for U of L, thanks in large part to the man under center.
