Winstometer Week 10: Jameis Winston mirrors Jim McMahon

Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota had solid games as they remained among the top performers among rookie quarterbacks drafted since 1980.

When Winston and Mariota went 1-2 in the NFL draft, the Tampa Bay Times created a database of all first-round quarterbacks drafted since 1980. As of midseason we began to screen out those with fewer than 50 pass attempts to account for playing time.

Mariota remains near the top of the list, ranking third with a quarterback ranking of 98.7, just behind Dan Marino (102.7) and Ben Roethlisberger (101.3) at the same point in their careers.

Winston is a few ticks below in eithth place with his rating of 80.2 almost mirroring Jim McMahon (79.9)

The Tampa Bay Times created a database of all quarterbacks picked in the first round of the NFL draft since 1980. Each week, we compare Jameis Winston and Marcus Mariota's cumulative performance against the others at the same point in their rookie seasons. As of midseason, we incorporated a screen to assure that a quarterback has attempted a minimum of 50 passes to be included. You can compare quarterbacks by clicking on their names, which will highlight their performance in the graph. Also, if you hover over a line in the graph, it will identify the quarterback.
