No position garners more attention, draws more debate and causes more disagreements than that of ranking quarterbacks.

When it is done, if your guy isn’t high enough, you’ll spend time trashing those in front of him. If he is highly ranked, you have to defend that ranking like you defend a spouse or relative.

It is always an awkward conversation, but this was more interesting because it came from a community at Reddit/NFL.

Well, they are not high on Sam Bradford at all.

They ranked Bradford in the bottom third of quarterbacks in the NFL.

Ranking ahead of Bradford, outside of the usual suspects in the top 12 who have not been decided, were players who have been two things Bradford hasn’t.

Consistent and healthy.

Bradford was ranked in the Dak, Flacco, Eli Manning, Andy Dalton, and Jameis Winston group.

Most of those quarterbacks are either young and inconsistent (Dak and Jameis) or old, declining Super Bowl winner Eli Manning.

Bradford ranks ahead of only Blake Bortles, Joe Flacco, Deshaun Watson, Case Keenum, Tyrod Taylor, Ryan Tannehill and Josh McCown.

Is Bradford really a bottom third of the NFL quarterback?

What are your thoughts on the overall rankings? We may update this as the offseason goes along.
