Report: Teddy Bridgewater To Enter NFL Draft

David Manning-USA TODAY Sports

The time has come for Louisville to say goodbye to Teddy Bridgewater.

According to ESPN's Brett McMurphy, Bridgewater has officially decided to forgo his final year of eligibility an declare himself eligible for the NFL Draft. He is expected by most experts to be the first quarterback selected, and by many to be the No. 1 overall pick.

Bridgewater's departure will undoubtedly spark a debate (at some point) over whether or not he was the best to ever suit up at Louisville.

In three seasons, Bridgewater led the Cardinals to a 30-9 overall record, two conference championships, two double-digit win seasons and a pair of bowl victories over Florida and Miami. He'll leave U of L ranked No. 1 all-time at the school in completion percentage and passing efficiency, and he owns the Cardinal record for passing touchdowns in a single season. Despite playing one year less than the guys ahead of him, Bridgewater also leaves ranking third in career touchdowns and third in career passing yards.

We'll have more when Teddy officially confirms this and a fitting tribute down the line at some point, but for now I think the thing to do is simply say thank you and congratulations.
