That is the opinion of NFL Network draft expert, Mike Mayock who spoke to reporters today.

Alongside Johnny Manziel and Blake Bortles, Teddy Bridgewater is regarded as part of the 'top class' of quarterbacks available in this years NFL draft.

And with all three being discussed as potential first overall picks, Mayock believes the former Louisville play-caller is the best suited to the NFL at the present time:

"Teddy Bridgewater is most NFL-ready QB in the draft," College Football 24/7 reports him saying.

Bridgewater finished his college career with the Cardinals with 72 touchdown plays, having thrown for 9,817 yards and been intercepted 24 times.

And numerous analysts have argued that he is the most complete QB available in the class of 2014.

As per College Football 24/7's Twitter account, Mayock went on to explain his reasoning during the scheduled conference call:

"Bridgewater not as much of a wild card as Manziel and more developed in reads that Bortles," he reportedly told listening media during a scheduled conference call.

Mayock was likely referring to the off-the-field activities which have come to dominate the image of Johnny Football, but in recent days the former A&M man has spoke out against this as he prepares for the draft in San Diego.

While Blake Bortles' college coach doesn't see his former player as a franchise quality quarterback.

With the Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars and Cleveland Browns amongst  the first teams to pick at the draft, and all needing a quarterback fairly urgently, Bridgewater's ability to step straight in may prove appealing.
