Three quarterbacks were selected in the top 10 picks of the 2012 NFL draft.
One preseason game is an awfully small sample size, but if their first games under center were any indication, the teams that made the lofty investment in this trio of young signal-callers are going to be very glad they did.
Second overall pick Robert Griffin got things started on Thursday when he took the field as the starting quarterback for the Washington Redskins.
Griffin didn't play very long but did plenty with the time he had, connecting on four of six passes for 70 yards, including a 20-yard scoring strike to Pierre Garcon.
Next up was Ryan Tannehill of the Miami Dolphins, and although Tannehill did most of his damage against second stringers there's no denying he looked good doing it.
Tannehill was easily the most effective quarterback on the field for the Dolphins in their 20-7 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, completing 14-of-21 passes for 167 yards and a score.
However, their debuts paled by comparison to the show put on by first overall pick Andrew Luck of the Indianapolis Colts.
After completing his first NFL pass for a 63-yard touchdown, Luck proceeded to go 10-of-16 for 188 yards with a pair of touchdown passes against the St. Louis Rams in a performance that drew rave reviews, even from the opposing coach according to Yahoo! Sports.
''He's going to be a really good player,'' new St. Louis coach Jeff Fisher said. ''We knew that before playing him today. He's got that sense and he's smart. We've got unblocked rushers twice and he got out of there to avoid the sacks by spinning out of there.''
