It’s only been two games, but EJ Manuel is getting praise for being one of the most surprising rookies in terms of performance through the first couple of weeks of the 2013 season.

NFL.com’s Daniel Jeremiah asked five league executives who they felt were the five most surprising rookies in terms of their play early in 2013. Manuel was the choice of one of the NFL execs with whom he spoke for his Top 5 Most Surprising Rookies. Here’s what the NFL executive said about Manuel when asked to pick his most surprising rookie.

Executive No. 1: Bills QB EJ Manuel (Round 1, 16th overall)

“This one is easy to answer: E.J. Manuel. I thought the game would be too big for him. So far, it’s not. He’s way more poised than I ever imagined when I studied him at Florida State.”
