After diving into the effects of pressure as it comes from various positions and going further in-depth on the overrated left tackle position, it’s time to take a look at how individual quarterbacks are affected by different types of pressure. The first two pieces consist of a more general view of the NFL, and perhaps they’ve already helped influence at least one team’s NFL Draft strategy, but this breakdown is looking for trends in specific quarterback performance.Are some quarterbacks more vulnerable from the inside? Off the edge? From a particular side? We’ve called upon our five years of extensive data (2008-2012) to answer some of these questions.As you read and digest the numbers, please keep in mind that certain charts may be skewed by small sample sizes. For instance, much more pressure comes through the tackle positions than does from center so quarterback numbers when facing edge rush pressure may be more indicative of future performance than pressure that comes from center.Enough of the caveats, let’s take a look.
