Jameis Winston moved into the top 10 in first-round rookie quarterback performance in the Bucs' 38-31 victory over the Jaguars.

Through five weeks, Winston's quarterback rating (77.58) most resembles Andrew Luck (77.13) at the same point in his career.

After Winston and Tennessee's Marcus Mariota were drafted 1-2 in the NFL draft, the Tampa Bay Times built a database of quarterbacks drafted in the first round since 1980. Each week we plug in the updated stats and compare the QBs.

Winston ranks eighth on the list through five weeks, just ahead of Luck.

Mariota and the Titans lost 14-13 to Buffalo this week as the quarterback threw for 187 yards with no touchdowns and one interception. His rating fell to 100.27, ranking third on the list behind Todd Blackledge and Robert Griffin.

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. 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.
