When the quarterbacks start throwing at the combine Sunday, Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater won’t be one of them. He will run but not throw this week in Indianapolis.
But in Bridgewater’s mind, he’s already done enough to merit consideration at the top of the NFL Draft in May. In face, he thinks the Houston Texans should chose him number one overall.
“Yes, no doubt. I feel that I’m the best quarterback in this draft,” he told the media Saturday.
“I’m not just going to sit up here and say it. There’s obviously actions that have to back up these words,and I’m just confident in myself and my capability to be able to play this position. I’m just going to go out there and prove that I’m the best guy.”
Bridgewater says there’s one major factor that separates him from the rest of the quarterbacks.
“The biggest thing I think is my accuracy,” he said. “This past season, I was able to complete 71 percent of my passes. My third-down passing completion percentage was pretty much off the charts, my pocket presence. I’m a competitor. Each day I go out there and I’m eager to learn, remain a student of the game, and I think that right there just separates me.”
