Earlier: Louisville junior quarterback Teddy Bridgewater may very well be the No. 1 pick in the upcoming NFL draft, just like Peyton Manning was in 1998. But according to the Cardinals star himself, that isn’t where the comparisons of the two end. He took a few questions from Twitter on SportsCenter today and made quite a claim when asked which NFL quarterback he sees himself as most similar to.

Yes, Bridgewater is an absolute stud and worthy of getting a shot as a starting quarterback in the professional ranks. But he might be setting himself up for some lofty expectations if he keeps comparing himself to one of the all-time greatest quarterbacks to ever play. Only time will tell.
