Before the preseason began if you asked most people who the most NFL ready quarterback of the 2014 class was, they would likely answer that it’s Blake Bortles of the Jaguars or Teddy Bridgewater of the Vikings.
While Bortles and Bridgewater have both looked good, now that three preseason games are in the books they may just have to change their minds.
Tennessee Titans rookie Zach Mettenberger has impressed a lot of folks so far this month – most notably ESPN’s Adam Caplan who called him the best looking rookie QB of his class:

Mettenberger has thrown for more yards than any other quarterback this preseason and completed 31 of 44 passes over the last two games. While he has thrown a couple of interceptons, he has also connected on throws that many 2013 starters would not be able to make.
If Mettenberger continues to impress he will have a good chance to take over at QB1 if anything happens to Jake Locker, who has yet to finish a complete season in his NFL career.
