The San Francisco 49ersColin Kaepernick is the sixth youngest quarterback to get the Super Bowl start.

Dan Marino and Ben Roethlisberger are the youngest ever. Both started at the age of 23, though Marino edges out Roethlisberger by six months.

But Marino lost, making Roethlisberger the youngest QB to win the big game.

These are the top 10 youngest quarterbacks to start the Super Bowl (or everyone 26 and younger). Ties are broken by birthdate.
