Although the bowl season spotlight shines brightest after New Year’s Eve, few NFL draft prospects will face higher expectations going into their bowl games than Louisville junior quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, the projected No. 1 overall pick should he declare for the 2014 NFL draft, will when the Cardinals (11-1) play the Miami Hurricanes (9-3) Saturday in the Russell Athletic Bowl (6:45 p.m. ET, ESPN) in Orlando.

Bridgewater will certainly be in the spotlight Saturday evening, . His leading wide receiver, DeVante Parker, is another potential early-round draft selection if he declares for this year’s draft as a junior. His quarterback adversary in this game, Miami’s Stephen Morris, is also an intriguing NFL prospect.

2014 NFL Draft Prospect to Watch: Louisville WR DeVante Parker

Overshadowed by both his quarterback and other players at his position, Louisville junior wide receiver DeVante Parker has not yet gotten the attention he deserves as a 2014 NFL draft prospect.

It is understandable why Parker hasn’t taken the spotlight in the preseason buildup to the upcoming college football season. His quarterback, Teddy Bridgewater, could be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2014 draft. At the wide receiver position, there are some very talented players who could factor into the high picks of the 2014 draft including USC junior Marqise Lee, Clemson junior Sammy Watkins and Vanderbilt senior Jordan Matthews.

Overlooking Parker, however, would be a mistake. He is a very talented receiver with star potential, and could easily end up as a first-round selection should he have a breakout junior season and declare for the 2014 draft.

When you watch Louisville this season, it’s going to be tempting just to pay attention to Bridgewater throwing the ball. Let’s take a look at why you should also focus on Parker catching the ball.
