The 2019 NFL season began with only one quarterback from the rookie draft class starting Week 1 — Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray — but it was not long before that all changed.

Ten rookie quarterbacks in all took snaps this season, which is three more than last year and most since 2016.

It led to the introduction of guys named Gardner, "Duck," and Blough to the football lexicon, while the more familiar names, such as Murray, Jones and Haskins, also got to show what they can be capable of in the NFL.

Of the 10 rookie quarterbacks who appeared in this season, seven of them had at least 100 snaps. While it's still a small sample size for some, we took a look at how those seven fared in their first season in the NFL.
