Top 10 Rookies to Watch this NFL Season

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.

Top 10 Events This Weekend (12/17 – 12/19)

Well, here it is Wednesday again.  Time to announce the top ten events that are going on this weekend!

The top ten are heavy on the music with pop superstar Justin Bieber and his My World Tour and the incomparable Prince with his 20Ten Tour, both nabbing 4 0f the 10 positions.  Given that Nashville is one of the country music capitals of the world, it shouldn’t be surprising that country legend Mr. Garth Brooks is making quite the splash there.

Football is of course, another exceptionally popular event this time of year.  The Rams vs. Chiefs game is garnering quite a lot of attention.  There is a lot on the line for both the teams as the Chiefs are trying to hang on to their small lead over San Diego by one game in the AFC West and the Rams are momentarily tied with their rival Seattle for first place in the NFC West.

Another exciting football game should be the Vikings vs. Bears game for Monday night football.  The real question with that game is, where are they going to play?  Given that the roof caved in on the Metrodome in Minneapolis under the immense pressure of the snow, the venue is still TBD.

The Giants vs. Eagles game pits the two against each other in a battle to see who will be the division leads. The winner of this game will be in a super position for the playoffs. The loser will still be a contender for the playoffs, but the certainty will be gone.

  1. Prince – Saturday, 12/18/2010 – Madison Square Garden, NY, NY
  2. St. Louis Rams vs. Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 12/19/2010 – St. Louis, MO.
  3. New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles, Sunday, 12/19/2010 – East Rutherford, NJ.
  4. Prince – Friday- 12/17/2010 – East Rutherford, NJ.
  5. New York Knicks vs. Miami Heat, Friday, 12/17/2010 – Madison Square Garden, NY, NY.
