Realistic Stat Predictions for Every Starting QB in 2013
USA TODAY Sports
What kind of stats will Colin Kaepernick put up in a full season?

The huge deals signed by Joe Flacco and Tony Romo this offseason serve as another reminder of how much of a quarterback-driven league the NFL continues to be.

While the rumor mill continues to speculate about the future home of Carson Palmer and Matt Flynn, teams are taking the new crop of 2013 rookie quarterbacks through the paces at private workouts around the country.

So let's look ahead and predict what kind of statistics every starting quarterback will generate this year. Our focus is on predicting the key passing statistics for 2013.

With the time NFL teams and coaches devote to learning how to play defense against read-option quarterbacks, making predictions about the rushing totals of quarterbacks seems pointless. The give and take between the offense and defense is the beauty of the NFL. Offenses try to find new ways to exploit defenses, and defenses respond in kind.

For any team where the starter is still up in the air, we will make our best educated guess about who will emerge as the starter.

Each team slide will include the available weapons on the roster, (or the supporting cast if you prefer), to bring you up to speed on every NFL team. Team weapons are listed in order by the overall size of their contract, as per Spotrac.com. We will also highlight the final passing stats from 2012, via team QB totals, considering that a number of teams used multiple quarterbacks.

Finally, we will include predictions for what the 2013 starter will do, along with analysis of every 2013 offense, as it stands on April 1. Please note the projected QB passer rating is only a prediction, as opposed to the result of plugging the numbers into a formula.
