Snapshot: Bridgewater, Clowney leaving for the NFL

Thu., Jan. 2, 2014, midnight

Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater announced that he will forgo his senior season with the No. 18 Cardinals and enter the NFL draft. Projected as a first-round selection and possibly the first QB taken this spring, Bridgewater (pictured) passed for 3,970 yards and a school-record 31 touchdowns this season, including a career-best 447 yards with three TDs in Saturday’s 36-9 rout of Miami in the Russell Athletic Bowl. Bridgewater said in a release that the decision “was extremely difficult.” Also, South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney says he will enter for the NFL draft. Likely the top overall talent in the class, Clowney finished his college career with five tackles on Wednesday in the Gamecocks’ 34-24 victory over Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl. – Associated Press
