2014 NFL Draft: Teddy Bridgewater "Contemplating" Staying In School

Andy Lyons

Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater is reportedly considering staying in school rather than entering the 2014 NFL Draft, because apparently the Texans have the worst luck of all time.

Former Dallas Cowboys executive and current NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt sent out a very concerning tweet for Texans fans (and probably Vikings, Jaguars, Raiders, and Browns fans too) earlier today about Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.

Bridgewater, widely seen as a top three pick in the upcoming 2014 NFL Draft, is considered one of two likely candidates to go first overall should the Texans be "rewarded" with the first selection. Possessing a lethal mixture of athleticism, arm strength, and intelligence, Bridgewater lead the Louisville Cardinals to their second straight eleven win season with over 3,500 yards passing, 28 touchdowns, 4 interceptions, and a 70% completion percentage. Louisville has earned an invitation to face Stephen Morris and the Miami Hurricanes in the Russell Athletic Bowl. Morris, who also will be looked at heavily in the draft process as a draft eligible quarterback, is one of the more physically gifted signal callers in this class, though he has yet to demonstrate the level of intelligence and accuracy seen from Bridgewater. If both quarterbacks play to their capabilities, we could be in for one hell of a shootout in a couple weeks.

Bridgewater graduates after this semester. If he does decide to go back to school to chase a national championship, it could have massive ramifications on the NFL Draft. Do the Texans take Jadaveon Clowney and roll the dice on finding a quarterback in the second round? Does Houston trade the rights to Clowney for a bounty of picks and target an injured, yet promising, prospect like Aaron Murray in the middle rounds? How many hours would it take for Houston to burn itself to the ground if another Carr is taken first overall? All of these questions and more will (hopefully) be answered this May. Until then, all Texans fans can do is wait and pray that our dearest Teddy does not abandon us.
