The Vikings and 49ers appear to be heading in opposite directions. Minnesota is led by a rising star in Teddy Bridgewater, who finally gets to hand off to Adrian Peterson. And the 49ers have endured a mass exodus during the offseason. How will it play out on the field? Here are five key stats to know.
With the regular season ending, first 20 picks of the 2015 NFL Draft are now set with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers "earning" the No. 1 overall pick for the first time since 1987. That year the club selected local hero Vinny Testaverde. Will the Bucs elect to do the with Jameis Winston or go for the "safer" pick in Marcus Mariota?
The Jaguars (and Oakland Raiders) are big fans of Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota. Not that the clubs want to select either quarterback after investing in the position last spring. No, the Jags and Raiders are hoping the QBs rise to set up trade opportunities. Could St. Louis or Houston be willing to move up?
