Drafted by: Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 2015.
Yep, Jameis Winston could be higher on this list, but let's give him time. The Bucs' franchise quarterback has only played two seasons in the league. That said, in that span, Winston has become the leader on the field and a very productive quarterback, despite being just 23 years old. He's also been asked to do so much more than other young passers, having already thrown nearly 300 more passes than the quarterback drafted right after him (Marcus Mariota). No wonder Winston went first overall.
