Those are things to keep in mind while reading the following: It's only the preseason. With that disclaimer out of the way, it was a rather ridiculous weekend for rookie signal callers.
It was the little things. As Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com pointed out, Luck was going to his third and fourth reads. He was moving defenders with his eyes. He was reading the play before it happened. It's hard to imagine a more impressive debut. Luck sold some tickets on Sunday.
Tannehill's debut was lost in the Chad Johnson fiasco that followed. Expected to be more of a project than other highly doubted quarterbacks in this draft, Tannehill seems to be developing ahead of schedule. He looks the part. After going 14-of-21 for 167 yards and a score, it wouldn't be surprising to see Tannehill start a preseason game ahead of Matt Moore. At this rate, Moore will have a short leash if the veteran wins the starting job coming out camp.
Is it too early to say that it's ridiculous Wilson was the eighth quarterback drafted? The guy looked like a human highlight reel in his debut. Matt Flynn held serve with a solid-enough debut, but Wilson isn't out the race to be Seattle's Week 1 starter. We've seen enough to know Wilson is going to be an exciting player to watch for a while.
It's only the preseason. It's only a week. But the rookie quarterbacks were the story of the first preseason week.
