Florida's starting defense vs. Louisville

DE - Dominique Easley
- Considered a 1st rd prospect this year, but tore his acl early in the year. If he declares will probably be a 2nd round pick

NT - Omar Hunter
- UDFA for the Steelers

DT - Shariff Floyd
- 23rd overall pick by Vikings

BUCK - Lerentee McCray
- UDFA for the Broncos

OLB - Neiron Ball
- Currently a junior OLB for UF

MLB - Jonathan Bostic
- 50th overall pick by the Bears

NICKEL - Loucheiz Purifoy
- Projected as a 3rd round pick for this year's draft

CB - Jaylen Watkins
- Projected as a 5th round pick for this year's draft

SS - Matt Elam
- 32nd overall pick by the Ravens

FS - Josh Evans
- 169th overall pick by the Jaguars

CB - Marcus Roberson
- Projected as a 2nd round pick for this year's draft


Keep in mind that, more than likely, the only players from that Louisville offense that will be drafted are Bridgewater and his WR DeVante Parker. OG Alex Kupper was an UDFA the Texans stashed on their practice squad.

If you watched the game, Bridgewater was not average. He played a very impressive game against a stacked defense and had little talent to work with against it. That's why so many people were impressed with this one game.

FWIW, I agree with you that body of work is more important than one game.
Remember I mentioned how Keenum out scored Bama 17 points in his rookie year (he was splitting time with another QB who was part of the reasons UH was in a big hole.)

Alabama started having problem after that game, what with all the suspensions and injuries.

That defense there was as close to an NFL defense that you will find in college.

Keenum outplayed Bridgewater against a better defense as a rookie.
What's so hot about Teddy?
