After the Panthers traded Kyle Allen this spring and elected to not draft a quarterback last weekend, Teddy Bridgewater is cemented as their 2020 starting quarterback. His case as 2020’s late-round quarterback boils down to three simple predictions.
- Bridgewater will likely be near the top of the league in pass attempts.
- He will likely be slightly above league average in passing efficiency.
- He has rushing upside that separates him from other potential late-round options.
Let’s look at the case for each prediction.
Prediction 1: Elite Passing Volume
In three of the past four seasons, the Panthers have attempted at least 563 passes, and they finished second with 633 attempts last year. Entering 2020 with a new coaching staff, the Panthers should again be near the top of the league in pass attempts.
