Thread: How is this years rookie class doing?

    How is this years rookie class doing?

    I'm not talking specifically about the Jets rookies, but the leagues rookies in general? Sheldon Richardson has to be leading the way for DROY? The guy is an animal. What's amazing is us saying this after only 3 games as a pro. We never raved about Wilk like this so quickly. If this guy continues to improve his game, and he can stay healthy, we could be looking at DPOY at some point in time.

    Honey Badger and Star have also looked great. Those two, along with Sheldon, have been the best defensive rookies so far IMO.

    At the moment, I think Justin Houston's got the early lead on DPOY.

    Based purely on stats so far, Kiko Alonso might be ahead but Richardson is right there. And Ansah is a contender along with the two guys mentioned above.

    Oddly enough, the one guy you didn't mention, Geno, might be a legit contender for OROY if he keeps on keeping on. I'd say De'Andre Hopkins is the strongest contender so far but there's plenty of games ahead and he's certainly the top QB at the moment.

    DeAndre Hopkins has been pretty good so far

    It's not inconceivable that we could have both the DROY and OROY on our roster (Richardson and Geno).

    This is shaping up to be an incredible first draft for Idzik.

    Geno, Richardson and Bohannon

    If Milliner steps it up and Winters can eventually step into the starting lineup, then Idzik really knocked this one out of the park.

    He mentioned DPOY regarding Wilk. Not DROY. But I realize now he was referring to Sheldon in the future, not Wilk this year.

    My guy Mingo is off to a good start, 2 sacks in his first 2 games. Much better so far than Jarvis Jones (had Mingo vs Jones arguments all draft season)

    Richardson has the luxury of playing opposite Mo. Mo didn't have that luxury.

    Solid building block for the Dynasty we're going to have here the next 10 years.

    Eric Reid has also played pretty well for San Fran.

    PFF week 3 1st round rankings. Read the comment about Star Lotulelei, it talks about Big Snacks out performing him and star is the highest rated #1.

    Maybe for 3-4 years given your prediction of the Pats going 4-12 this year, but eventually Kraft is going to raise some more money and pay off enough refs to take some wins in that rightfully earned Jets dynasty. He might even pay to prevent it all together. You just can't beat that.

    The defensives rookies have been great throughout the league.

    Offensively, in terms of overall performance, it will come down to two people, Geno and Bernard.

    De'Andre Hopkins is currently the front-runner. But Geno and Gio would appear to be right behind him.

    He can pay off all the refs he can afford, but once Brady retires, the Pats will be lucky to average 2 wins a season for the next decade.

    See all of your games this year... Specifically week 2.

    Awful Jackass

    13. Sheldon Richardson, DE, New York Jets
    Grade: +5.5
    Snaps: 162
    Analysis: Let’s start with the not so good. He hasn’t generated much pressure. Now let’s get on to the good (and it is good), where he is really making a name for himself with his work against the run. Currently only J.J. Watt of the 3-4 ends has a higher rating in that regard.


    Pretty strong start for Sheldon. Although a few of the highly touted DT's have impressed so far. Don't mind the Pats trolls, they are used to their rookies sucking and dropping out of the league.

    FWIF this is PFF's overall rookie of the year rankings as of week 3. 2 Jets in the top 5...not so bad.

    1. Star Lotulelei, DT, CAR: +7.8

    Saw a season-low 25 snaps as the Panthers faced a lot of the Giants 11 personnel and could afford to take it easy on their first-round pick. Still notched his first NFL sack mind you.

    2. DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Texans: +5.3

    A happy start to life in the NFL for Hopkins personally, even if the Texans are coming off a disappointing defeat. Heís picked up a healthy 1.93 Yards Per Route Run and has the third-highest receiving grade of all wide receivers so far.

    3. Giovanni Bernard, RB, Bengals: +4.1

    81 snaps on the year may seem low but that number is rising on a game-by-game basis and the more he plays the more he demonstrates his ability running the ball and catching it out of the backfield.

    4. Sheldon Richardson, DE, Jets: +4.0

    Only J.J. Watt has a higher Run Stop Percentage than the Richardson who has turned 60 defensive snaps against the run into seven stops. The pass rush isnít there yet but heís making an impact.

    5. Geno Smith, QB, Jets: +0.2

    Even in his meltdown against New England there were positives. So once he cut out the mistakes we were treated to an impressive performance as he attacked the Bills downfield and led his team to a victory.

    6. Kyle Long, RG, Bears: +2.7

    Is getting better weekly and can take partial credit for the Bearsí improving offensive line. Gives up a little too much pressure right now but does make up for it with quality work in the run game.
