Mid-Season NFL All-Rookie Team

By | November 10, 2015

Taking into account BYE Weeks, we are pretty much at the midway point of the NFL season. I thought I’d look around the League and put together an All-Rookie team. Clearly, this team could look quite different at the end of the season, primarily because of injuries and late developing players. For instance, LB/JORDAN HICKS/EAGLES just went down with a torn pectoral muscle and will be lost for the remainder of the year. Surprise URFA JONATHAN ANDERSON of DA BEARS might well take his slot on the final team by January. I have included each player’s number and noted Undrafted Rookie Free Agents. Let the debates begin.

I was pleased to find that I had a very hard time selecting amongst candidates for some of these positions. And it is also clear that many more Rookies are just finding their way into starting lineups. But everyone cannot make the team. If you feel I have made an egregious error in judgment by not including a favorite Rookie of yours please send me an email with your player’s name.
