Jameis Winston slipped two spots to finish his rookie season eighth on the list of first-year quarterbacks drafted in the first round since 1980.
When the Bucs picked Winston first in the NFL draft and the Titans took Marcus Mariota No. 2, the Tampa Bay Times created a database of all first round quarterbacks since 1980. Each week, we plugged in the statistics and compared Winston and Mariota against the others at the same points in their rookie seasons.
Winston finished with a quarterback rating of 84.2, dropping behind Teddy Bridgewater (84.9) and Cam Newton (84.5).
Mariota didn't play because of an injury. He ranked fourth on the list with a rating of 91.5.
