Teddy Bridgewater NFL Draft 2014: Grading Vikings' First Round Pick

Use your ← → (arrow) keys to browse more stories

Teddy Bridgewater was drafted 32nd overall by the Minnesota Vikings in the 2014 NFL draft. The former Louisville quarterback once ranked as the consensus top pick in the draft, a virtual can't-miss quarterback, but a somewhat disappointing campaign combined with lackluster workouts this spring to see his draft stock take a hit in many camps. 

However, it's hard to deny the results that Bridgewater delivered on the field at Louisville. The 21-year-old signal caller carried the Cardinals back to relevance over the last two seasons, while also showing significant improvement in number of yards, touchdowns, interceptions and completion percentage from year to year. 

From a skill standpoint, Bridgewater is a solid pick. He has great accuracy and a solid, if unspectacular, arm. He makes good decisions under pressure and remains one of the most polished options at quarterback in this draft.

But, with questions about his size and durability, he's not a prospect without risks. Can he become the star many projected him to be in the NFL, or will the concerns that have come to light during the combine and his pro day be an indicator of things to come? Watch as our Draft experts discuss his ceiling and what skills he brings to the league.
