Rookie Quarterbacks: It Is Not 2012 Anymore
Jets second-year quarterback Geno Smith has averaged 3.88 Adjusted Net Yards per Attempt this year, which has resulted in him being benched for Michael Vick. That 3.88 ANY/A average is the worst of the 34 qualifying quarterbacks this season. In fact, only three other quarterbacks have averaged fewer than five Adjusted Net Yards per Attempt this year: Derek Carr (4.93), Teddy Bridgewater (4.75), and Blake Bortles (4.16). Those three, along with Johnny Manziel, were selected in the top 40 of the 2014 Draft. Since Manziel has been on the bench most of the season, and Zach Mettenberger does not yet have enough attempts to qualify, this means the only three rookie quarterbacks in the NFL this season have been terrible. With a capital T.

2015 NFL Mock Draft: Could Randy Gregory be the No. 1 overall pick? -
Since the 1997 NFL Draft, only three positions have been selected with the No. 1 overall pick: quarterback, offensive tackle and pass rusher. The Jacksonville Jaguars, who currently own the top spot after the Oakland Raiders earned their first victory of 2014, have recently invested in the quarterback and offensive tackle positions, leaving the pass rusher as the likely option if one is worth the top spot. And Nebraska's Randy Gregory might be intriguing enough to warrant the pick. There might not be an “elite” non-quarterback prospect in this draft class, but Gregory is on the short list of players who flash difference-maker potential.
