Every QB in the NFL runs a pro-style offense. In 2011 Alex Smith was #2 in Accuracy Percentage
In 2012, Pro Bowler Matt Schaub was 8th in Accuracy Percentage
. Pro Bowlers Philip Rivers and Matt Ryan were #1 & #2 in 2013... You wouldn't trade a Geno Smith or a Von Miller for one of those guys, would you? I wouldn't.
Julius Peppers projects into the top of his position group. Bridgewater doesn't project into the top 10 of his position group.
*PFF's "Accuracy Percentage" accounts for dropped passes, throw aways, spiked balls, batted passes, and passes where the quarterback was hit while they threw the ball - factors that hurt the quarterback's completion percentage but don't help show how accurate they are.
So getting to Clowney, the dude is a freak and flashed that last year. He may freak or he may bust in the NFL -- but if he freaks, his upside is big.

If he's a judge of actual "talent", then why the huge moves in 4 weeks? Their abilities didn't radically change.
12 spots is not that big of a move in the bigger picture. Like Earl Thomas to Jimmy Graham. Or Ray Rice to Duane Brown. Or Luke Kuechly to TY Hilton.
