Data Points: Passer rating for teams drafting a QB

While coaches wait for the lockout to end, there understandably exists some anxiety regarding the learning and assimilation time incoming rookies are missing. In theory, all of these coaches and their respective organizations are in the same boat.

But fans of the teams that drafted a quarterback to compete for the starting job could argue that all is not even-steven. The hardest position to play in sports necessitates quite the learning curve, especially for a young player transitioning from the college game.

While Carolina (Cam Newton), Tennessee (Jake Locker), Jacksonville (Blaine Gabbert), Minnesota (Christian Ponder), Cincinnati (Andy Dalton) and San Francisco (Colin Kaepernick) wait for the labor strife to resolve itself so each team can see its newest toy, we take a look back at how effectively each club threw the football last season.

The Jaguars lead the pack, and depending on what Carson Palmer does, likely have the strongest incumbent quarterback in David Garrard.
