Grading NFL’s next generation of quarterbacks: Trevor Lawrence flashes, Justin Herbert, Mac Jones struggle

Joe Burrow was clearly the best first or second year quarterback in Week 16, throwing for 525 yards in a throttling of the Ravens. Outside of that historic effort, his contemporaries didn’t fare too well in the third-to-last game of the regular season.

Well, outside of Trevor Lawrence, who, against the Jets defense, provided a glimpse as to why he was the No. 1 overall pick in April.

There were 10 quarterbacks selected in the past two NFL Draft classes that saw considerable playing time — more than 10 pass attempts — in Week 16.

Let’s dive deep into the individual efforts of each quarterback and assign a grade on a per-snap basis, taking every individual aspect of their performance into account.

I dove deep Burrow’s record-setting outing against the Ravens right here. It was an “A” effort. Obviously. 

Grade: A
Season Grade: B
