After the 2012 class of rookie quarterbacks set the NFL on fire, the 2013 draft class has high expectations to live up to. Unfortunately, there isn't a rookie quarterback like Robert Griffin III, Russell Wilson or Andrew Luck this year.
The only rookies who are likely to see playing time this year are Geno Smith of the New York Jets and EJ Manuel and Jeff Tuel of the Buffalo Bills. Tuel is basically a wash because he'll be replaced once Manuel is healthy enough to regain the starting position.
So, that leaves Manuel and Smith to lead the 2013 quarterback class to glory. Sorry, but it isn't going to happen. The Bills will feature running back C.J. Spiller heavily, and the Jets are...well, the Jets.
Both Smith and Manuel have plenty of potential, as do other rookie quarterbacks like Ryan Nassib and Mike Glennon, but the 2013 season won't see much impact from first-year signal-callers.
