In a draft class where three quarterbacks heard their names called among the first three picks and four were off the board by the 11th selection, the fifth has been the best of the bunch to start their careers. 

Jones leads the all first-year signal-callers with a 68 completion percentagewhich ranks ninth overall—2,135 passing yards, 10 touchdown passes, a 48.9 QBR and 89.8 quarterback rating. Oh, the New England Patriots are the only team with a winning record while starting a rookie quarterback. 

The numbers aren't staggering, but they show a competent cog in the Patriots offense with significant room for improvement. According to Pro Football Focus, Jones graded as the league's second-best quarterback since the start of Week 5. 

"You could see how intelligent he was the first day," Carolina Panthers head coach Matt Rhule, who coached Jones at this year's Senior Bowl, told reporters. "We put a lot of install in, a lot of words in, just to see if they could recite it, and you could see pretty quickly he had a feel for the game. He had some moxie, and he was really, really intelligent and accurate and could throw the deep ball at a high level."

Grade: B+
