Five quarterbacks went in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft and even more first-round picks have jumped immediately into starting roles during their rookie campaigns. One name, however, has risen above the rest in terms of rookie performance.

That's none other than rookie quarterback Mac Jones, who has led his New England Patriots to an impressive 8-4 record.

Jones' impressive stats are a big reason why he's beginning to pull away in the Offensive Rookie of the Year award race, according to betting odds from FanDuel Sportsbook.

Mac Jones Stats 2021

New England's rookie quarterback has not only been the best offensive rookie in terms of stats, but he ranks atop the NFL's leaderboard for all quarterbacks.

Jones leads all rookie quarterbacks with 2,850 passing yards in 2021. Those 2,850 yards rank 10th across all NFL quarterbacks.

Offensive Rookie of the Year Odds

He's best known for his accuracy after completing better than 70% (70.3%) of his passes through 12 games. Jones' completion percentage ranks behind only Kyler Murray and Tua Tagovailoa, who have played in four fewer games and attempted at least 82 fewer passes.

Jones has also thrown 16 touchdowns to just 8 interceptions, both ranking in the top half of the league's quarterbacks.

NFL Rookie of the Year

Currently, Jones holds very favorable -280 odds to win Offensive Rookie of the Year on FanDuel Sportsbook. Cincinnati Bengals wideout Ja'Marr Chase ranks second with +200 odds and no other quarterback owns better than +10000 odds to take home the award.
