Bridgewater Eliminated 

Despite all of the pre-draft experts talking about how pro-ready Bridgewater is, he actually comes in third place here. I have to put him there because he has more around him than the other two and he’s not doing anything with what he has.  Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson are his receivers plus his Minnesota Vikings have the NFL’s No. 7 rated overall defense.

The team has a Top-10 defense and their record is 1-1 with Bridgewater as the starter so he deservedly gets a share of the blame. Sure, superstar running back Adrian Peterson is suspended but those receivers and that defense is enough to work with. Pluse Bridgewater has played against one defense that’s in the top 10 with the weapons he has at his disposal.

His quarterback rating is 70.8, his QBR is 31.6 and he has no touchdown passes to three interceptions so far this year. He also has  one 300-yard game but he isn’t as advanced as many thought and has a longer ways to go than the other two. But this is about who’s at the head of the Class of 2014 right now and Bridgewater currently doesn’t look like that guy.
