QB Teddy Bridgewater tops MMQB's 'Big Board'

Posted by: Master Tesfatsion under NFL draft Updated: November 19, 2013 - 4:41 PM

Perhaps a little early to look at draft boards considering the uncertainly of some players declaring for the NFL Draft, but Lousville junior quarterback Teddy Bridgewater topped MMQB's Andy Staples' third edition of the Big Board. Staples covers colllege football for Sports Illustrated.

Bridgewater has been labeled as the best quarterback prospect in the 2014 NFL Draft since the start of the season by most draft pundits. Lousvile faces Memphis on Saturday in what could be Bridgewater's final home game if he declares for the draft.

South Carolina junior defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was second, followed by UCLA senior linebacker Anthony Barr.

10. Texas A&M redshirt sophomore Johnny Manziel

11. Georgia senior Aaron Murray

15. Alabama senior AJ McCarron

18. Clemson senior Tajh Boyd

19. LSU senior Zach Mettenberger
