As we near the post-season schedule the 2014 NFL Draft is on the mind and lips of football fans worldwide but the almost certain first pick is uncertain whether he will actually declare for the draft.

Junior quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, of the Louisville Cardinals, is widely expected to be the top quarterback pick and overall first pick of the 2014 draft.

But the 21-year-old is reportedly considering returning to Louisville for his senior season which would most likely lead to Johnny Manziel becoming the most sought after quarterback in next year’s draft.

Would it be foolish for Bridgewater to pass up on a potential number one draft position? Any change in form in a senior season would surely lead to a sharp decline in Bridgewater’s suitors for the 2015 draft.

It’s unlikely that he will reveal his decision until after the Cardinal’s bowl game on December 28th but with many NFL teams contemplating a new quarterback the decision will be one highly anticipated by many.

The Houston Texans are currently in line to receive the number one pick in next year’s draft and they have been predicted to recruit Bridgewater first. Previous favourite’s Jacksonville Jaguar’s recent stellar form has played them out of any real position to draft the Louisville man.

Oakland Raiders and Cleveland Browns are also in the hunt for a new quarterback in the draft but it’s unlikely Bridgewater would not be drafted before their picks.

As a freshman Bridgewater was named the Big East Rookie of the Year completing 64.5 percent of his passes for 2,129 yards with 14 touchdowns and12 interceptions.

Last year he led Louisville to an 11-2 season which boasted a Sugar Bowl win over Florida. His season statistics were impressive with 3,718 yards from passes with 27 touchdowns and just eight interceptions.

The decision awaiting the young quarterback could certainly make or break the future for  Teddy Bridgewater.
