There is electricity in the air! The NFL Draft is well in the past, training camp is inching ever nearer, and a clearer picture is being painted of NFL Football Rookies rankings for 2013. The group of rookies from last year, were incredible, to say the least, and it’s exciting to think what they could do in the upcoming year.
Clearly these rankings can change as training camp/offseason news is made, rosters are creates and injuries happen.
As stated before, last year’s Rookies saw the most rookie quarterbacks land in the top 12 positions by season’s end, and three rookie running backs end up scoring loads of touchdowns which ranks them among the top 10 rookies over the past 10 years.
Top 10 Football Rookies For 2013 by Tickifieds
1. Montee Ball, RB, Denver
If Ball becomes a starter, he will come upon tough defense to halt the pass during most of the game. He’s one to watch.
2. Eddie Lacy, RB, Green Bay
While Lacy looks great on paper, he has some not great points of interest. He recently had toe surgery and it’s pretty well known that he has attitude issues. These points make for not such a great team player and might not do as well this season. The Packers also the have Johnathan Franklin in their back pocket too.
3. DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Houston
Head coach Gary Kubiak, made a comparison between Hopkins and former Broncos WR Rod Smith. He will work closely with Johnson, and act as his protégé, as he hopes to outshine fellow defense WR Andre Johnson.
4. Zac Stacy, RB, St. Louis
Stacy was a a fifth-round pick for the Rams in the 2013 NFL Draft, but Isaiah Pead and Daryl Richardson and still the frontrunners.
5. Robert Woods, WR, Buffalo
Woods will be going through a lesser version of what fellow teammate Hopkins takes on. Unfortunately, Stevie Johnson cannot compare to Andre Johnson, and Woods’ outcome is linked to Manuel’s most likely.
6. Markus Wheaton, WR, Pittsburgh
Since Mike Wallace left for Miami, the Steelers had an extra wide receiver spot to fill. They already have starters in Brown and Sanders, but they plan to use Wheaton in the slot and in the backfield.
7. Andre Ellington, RB, Arizona
Ellington has been compared to fellow Clemson player C.J. Spiller. He is a great addition Mendenhall and Williams with regards to speed and cutting.
8. Travis Kelce, TE, Kansas City
There is a plan in place by the Chiefs move Kelce out and line him up in several spots, but he has direct competition with free-agent signee Anthony Fasano and Moeaki.
9. Johnathan Franklin, RB, Green Bay
Franklin had the potential for being a top-three rookie running back had Lacy not been selected in front of him.
10. Aaron Dobson, WR, New England
Dobson has the oppotunity to start this season, across the way from Amendola. This is special thanks to Welker and Lloyd moving on.
