The standard for this year's rookie quarterbacks was set by Andrew Luck and Robert Griffin III, the top two overall picks in 2012 who led the Colts and Redskins to the postseason.
But they weren't the only instant success stories, something this year's Senior Bowl passers are aware of.
Among the six quarterbacks in last year's game, five started a combined 44 games, led by Russell Wilson (12-6 record for Seattle, including playoffs).
Brandon Weeden was 5-10 for Cleveland, Nick Foles 1-5 for Philadelphia, Ryan Lindley 1-3 for Arizona and Kirk Cousins 1-0 for Washington.
Among that group, only Weeden was a first-round pick.
It's the emergence of Wilson and Co., which has the top senior quarterbacks in this year's draft optimistic.
"There isn't one clear quarterback right now in our class,'' said Zac Dysert of Miami (Ohio). "It's wide open for that guy and it gives me motivation and incentive to work a little harder to try and be that top quarterback."
Only so much can be gleaned from the Senior Bowl practices.
Dysert and Arkansas' Tyler Wilson have supposedly struggled with accuracy and Glennon has climbed to the top of a group that also includes Florida State's E.J. Manuel, Oklahoma's Landry Jones and Syracuse's Ryan Nassib.
But who knows? A year ago, Wilson was judged by some teams as too short, Foles too inaccurate, Weeden too old and Lindley too slow.
The Jaguars are paying attention to the quarterbacks and the entire group.
