Colin Kaepernick is PFF’s 30th ranked quarterback

Oct 24, 2016 at 9:30 AM--


As of Monday morning, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is the 30th ranked quarterback according to advanced statistics site Pro Football Focus. In case you were wondering, that is just four spots above where Blaine Gabbert sits, at 34th. Of course, that is out of 34 graded quarterbacks in the NFL. While better than Gabbert, that ranking is still pretty bad.

At the top of the list are New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Indianapolis Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. Brady has the best passer rating among all quarterbacks while Luck is 12th.

In Pro Football Focus' grading system, Kaepernick sits right in front of Tennessee Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota.

Kaepernick finished last season as the 37th ranked quarterback in the NFL per Pro Football Focus, earning a 42.9 grade – the lowest of his career. This season, he is just above that grade at 46.1.

"Kaepernick's continued inaccuracy plagued the offense throughout and the offensive line did him zero favors," wrote Wes Huber of Pro Football Focus in regards to Kaepernick's performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. "Kaepernick accumulated a mere 143 passing yards on 34 attempts, 41 yards coming on the first drive and 36 of those gained during garbage-time check downs. Kaepernick would complete only two of nine attempts for six yards when under pressure and only twice attempted throws of 20 yards or more – both incompletions."

How does Kaepernick compare to the top and the bottom of the list? Let's take a look.

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers fans are confident their team will emerge with a victory over the Dallas Cowboys this weekend, the opening weekend of the NFL playoffs. Kyle Shanahan's squad has become a bit of a sexy Wild Card pick. The Cowboys are favored by three points, and the Niners are the road team. They boarded a Dallas-bound plane after Friday's practice and enter the matchup with a lot of confidence. The 49ers also could be healthier than they have been all season. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is still dealing with a thumb injury, but he delivered a gutsy performance in last weekend's regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. He's just one of the
