Notable NFL Players
Teddy Bridgewater, QB (Minnesota Vikings, @teddyb_h2o)
Arguably the greatest quarterback in the program’s history, Teddy Bridgewater was drafted 32nd overall to the Minnesota Vikings in 2014. The Miami, FL native dazzled from day one as the starter for the Vikings, leading them to a victory over the Atlanta Falcons in his first career start.
The following season, Teddy returned as a full-time starter for the Vikings and took Minnesota to an NFC North division title, upsetting Green Bay in the final game of the 2015 regular season. Bridgewater also earned a Pro Bowl selection in 2015.
Despite a brutal leg injury that threatened his career, Teddy is in the process of rehab and looking to return in time for the 2017 season.
Eric Wood, C, Buffalo Bills (@EWood70)
Another Pro Bowler in the ranks for Louisville, Wood was a first-round draft pick for the Bills in 2008. He has been part of an offensive line that has blocked for the likes of Pro Bowlers Marshawn Lynch and LeSean McCoy. Currently, another former Cardinal, John Miller, also helps Wood keep defensive linemen out of reach.
