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.

College Football Top 10 Games Week 8 (2012)

Florida Gators Football

The Gators are back in the BCS National Championship picture after Florida leap-frogged the South Carolina Gamecocks following their loss to LSU last week. The two will get a chance to go head to head in this week’s game of the week (GOTW).

Another crazy week of college football is in the books and now it’s time to look forward to the week 8 games that are trending on Tickifieds.com.  It comes as no surprise that this week’s top games are dominated by Big 12 and SEC games.  However, ACC football is certainly starting to garner some attention with 3 games in our top 10 this week.

With many teams on the cusp of becoming bowl eligible, games are becoming more and more important.    This is true not just for the top 25 teams (which frequently appear in our Top 10 lists) but also for non-ranked teams having strong seasons.  Teams like Arizona State, Northwestern, Nebraska, Duke, and North Carolina will be looking to build upon their winning ways.

College Football Top 10 Games Week 8 (2012)

1.  #2 Florida Gators vs #7 South Carolina Gamecocks

The Gators look to continue their unbeaten streak with a big win over 7th ranked South Carolina.  South Carolina lost a heart breaker last week to LSU.

2.  #13 West Virginia Mountaineers vs. #4 Kansas State Wildcats

WVU will look to rebound after getting destroyed by Texas Tech.  It won’t be easy against the 4th ranked K State Wildcats!

3.  #18 Texas A&M Aggies vs #6 LSU Tigers

Texas A&M’s stock has risen with the Gators (their only loss of the season).  A win for Texas A&M and you would have to consider them one of the top 10 teams in the nation (if not the Top 5).  LSU badly needs another win over a quality opponent to get back in the national championship discussion.

4.  #23 TCU Horned Frogs vs #17 Texas Tech Red Raiders

Two 5-1 teams will battle it out for the Big 12 supremacy.  Ticket for this game are in big demand as the 2 Texas school get ready for thier first Big 12 showdown!

5.  #19 Clemson Tigers vs Virginia Tech Hokies

The 19th ranked Clemson Tigers will look to put away ACC powerhouse VA Tech on Saturday.  The Hokies have been inconsistent but still have the talent to win the ACC.

6.  Northwestern Wildcats vs Nebraska Cornhuskers

A huge game between these two Big 10 teams.  With the conference down, a win could be the difference between a bid to the Rose Bowl.

7.  Duke Blue Devils vs North Carolina Tarheels

The Duke – North Carolina rivalry is always big but who woulda thunk that this game would actually mean something?  With both teams sitting at 5-2, the winner becomes bowl eligible.

8.  Miami Hurricanes vs #14 Florida State Seminoles

Another big in-state rivalry game… FSU should easily handle the ‘Canes but winning in Miami is never an easy task.

9.  Arizona State Sun Devils vs #3 Oregon Ducks

Although ASU is not ranked, they are sitting at 5-1 and present a tough match-up for the Ducks.  Tempe will be rocking for this game!

10.  #25 Texas Longhorns vs Baylor Bears

The Longhorns got destroyed last week by Oklahoma and will look to rebound against Baylor.  Texas will need to win convincingly to avoid dropping out of the top 25.
