Jameis Winston's rookie season is beginning to look like that of Cam Newton.

Winston moved up to seventh on the list of quarterbacks drafted in the first round since 1980.

His quarterback rating is 85.58, which is just behind where Newton (87.06) was at this point in his rookie season.

When the Bucs picked Winston No. 1 and Marcus Mariota went No. 2 to Tennessee, the Tampa Bay Times built a database of all first round quarterbacks since 1980.

Each week we plug in the statistics and compare Winston and Mariota against the others at the same point in their rookie seasons. Mariota missed is second consecutive game with injury, so he still ranks fifth at 93.62.

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.
