Teddy Bridgewater makes crazy throw before becoming darling of NFL draft

Teddy Bridgewater, the most intriguing college quarterback to play in what was likely his last game Saturday, has a lot to look forward to. It wasn't just adoring fans monitoring his performance this weekend.

Texans GM Rick Smith, whose team could lock up No. 1 pick today, spent Saturday night in Orlando watching QB Teddy Bridgewater.

Yes, the Texans - who are also pointing and muttering to each other about Penn State's Bill O'Brien - were stalking Bridgewater, and their vigilance was rewarded by letting them see one of Bridgewater's prettier throws of the season.

You can't do much more to make scouts and GMs look at each other and nod wordlessly before putting on sunglasses and disappearing into the crowd.

Are NFL GMs different from black ops operatives? Probably.
