8. Dan Marino, 1983 Dolphins

The 1983 draft was a QB bonanza, but Dan Marino's stock was far from the highest: he was the sixth play-caller to be selected in the first round, behind John Elway, Todd Blackledge, Jim Kelly, Tony Eason and Ken O'Brien.

Marino didn't make his first pro start until Game 6, but what a debut it was: he completed 19 of 29 passes for 322 yards and 3 TDs in a thrilling 38-35 OT loss to Buffalo. The starting job was his for good, and he led the Fins to seven wins in the next eight games, sealing a playoff berth. He ended the season with 173 completions in 296 attempts, throwing 20 TD passes while having only six picked off.

Marino still holds the records for highest passer rating for a rookie (96.0) and highest completion percentage for a rookie (58.45). Marino started only nine games, but became the only rookie to lead a conference in passing and the first rookie QB to start in the Pro Bowl.

2 rookie records could fall. Completion % which he already has (60%) and getting close passer rating(88.3)
