3 Vikings on NFL's 'All-Under-25 Team'

Author:

Teddy Bridgewater, Sharrif Floyd and Anthony Barr are part of NFL.com's "All-Under-25 Team."

The team consists of one player, 25 years old or younger, at every position. Bridgewater is the quarterback, Floyd one of two defensive tackles and Barr one of two outside linebackers. Dallas is the only other team with three players on the 26-man list.

Bridgewater:

"Bridgewater beats out Derek Carr on this list, mostly because he avoided the valleys that the Raiders quarterback experienced in his rookie campaign. While each player's stats weren't too far off -- Carr had seven more touchdown passes, while Bridgewater posted a completion percentage that was six points higher -- Teddy's game-by-game consistency is a harbinger of larger success to come."

Floyd

"Floyd made significant progress in Year 2. Everyone was focused on Cordarrelle Patterson entering last season, but it was this Vikings sophomore who flourished. Despite missing two games, he was a stud against the run and recorded 4.5 sacks."

Barr

"Give Barr a lot of credit. While Mack was (deservedly) racking up headlines, Barr had a pretty nice rookie campaign of his own. Despite missing four games, the 22-year-old had 70 tackles (six for loss) and forced two fumbles."

Viking Update notes that Bridgewater set Vikings rookie records for most starts (12), games without an interception (four), completion percentage (64.4) and passer rating (85.2).

Barr had 99 tackles before an injury cut his season short.

Floyd set a career highs with 55 tackles, 4 1/2 sacks, 11 tackles for loss and 43 quarterback pressures. According to the Star Tribune, Floyd was rated among the best defensive tackles in the NFL by Pro Football Focus.
