Seeing the best and rating the rest

With the regular season in the books, the bowl schedule set and Navy beating Army, it's time to take a breath, organize notes and reflect on the 2013 season. I went to seven games this year and saw a number of talented prospects. Here's a look at the top three, three who project as Day 2 picks and three sleepers. As always, draft-eligible underclassmen are denoted with an asterisk.
TOP THREE PROSPECTS
Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater* (6-2½, 220)
Bridgewater completed 57 percent of his passes for 288 yards and a touchdown in addition to throwing a pick and muffing a center-quarterback exchange against Connecticut. Not the stat line you would expect from a first-round pick against a struggling pass defense, but the numbers are misleading.
