Philip Rivers could have turned it up to 12.

No, that's this puff piece about 2017's fifth overall pick and second QB drafted in the first round. Number five mentions his only rookie start, and number ten his 'froggish voice'.

/All three of 2017's first round QB picks are starting in the NFL
//Right-clicking Trubisky in Chrome is broken (unless Packers fan)
///Rookie contracts FTW

And Eli's still the QB in NY.
Suck it, Giants.

Something to consider: of the 30 Browns QB starters since 1999, Mayfield now has the 11th most wins (tied with Manziel and Delhomme).  One more gets him into a tie for 9th.  One more after that, and he'd be tied for 7th.  Surviving 3 seasons at a .500 average would get him to 1st.

i just read yesterday, his early numbers are a marked improvement over Bernie Kosar's rookie season, whom to Browns fans of the last 40 years, represents the gold standard.    In his 2nd start, he passed for almost 350 yards.  I would bet Cleveland QB's have had that much yardage that less than 5 times in the last 15 years.

2018 NFL rookies compared:

- Baker Mayfield - 63-107 58.9%, 838 Yards 3 TDs 3 INTs (5 total turnovers), 7.8 YPA, 9.2 Yards per Throw
- Sam Darnold - 83-147 55.7%, 1,066 Yards 7 TDs 6 INTs (6 total turnovers), 7.2 YPA, 8.9 Yards Per Throw
- Josh Rosen - 29-59 49.2%, 386 Yards 2 TDs 1 INT (1 Turnover), 6.5 YPA, 9.8 Yards per throw
- Josh Allen - 65-122 53.3% 748 Yards 2 TDs (5 Total) 5 INTs (6 Total Turnovers) 6.1 YPA, 10.0 Yards per throw - 31 rushes 135 yards 3 TDs
- Lamar Jackson 1-5 20.0% 24 Yards - 16 Rushes 72 Yards

I created a Tableau comparison of all rookie QBs of the past 10 years, will continue to update all season.

It's data and basic Tableau bar chart that can be sorted by season, week, quarter, and down/distance, you can also filter out QBs based on how many passes they've thrown. I've ordered by passer rating and made a color chart (Red to Green) based on YPA.

Also includes:
Red Zone filter - Option to filter on passes in Red Zone, inside 10, and inside 5 Yards in
Air filter - I've created groupings of short (Screens, 3-10 Yards), medium (11-20 Yards) and long passes (21-30, 31-40, 40+) to filter on
