In 2014, Mastrole continued with first round quarterbacks when he took over the Pre NFL draft training for Louisville star quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Mastrole organized private workouts in South Florida, while training Bridgewater, for several NFL teams. The most important, the Minnesota Vikings, would go on and draft their quarterback of the future in the first round (32nd overall). Mastrole was also responsible for the most decorated quarterback in Clemson football history Tajh Boyd.
