PIGSKIN PAUL’s 2020 NFL All-Rookie Team

By | December 29, 2020

It was not my intention to load up with 50 Rookies on my team. But with a few injuries (i.e. JOE BURROW), an overload of talent at some positions, and the NFL using multiple sets of personnel groupings,  listing just 25 guys is impractical. So on this team, I give you 38 players. PPG

A special note and shout out to James Robinson/RB and Tommy Townsend/P for making this team after earning roster spots with their respective teams as Undrafted Rookies.

I should also mention that the Vikings had the most players on this team, which is appropriate, since they had the most Rookies drafted, with 15, last April.

I was considering doing an honorable mention list, but with the number of Rookies likely to be on that list it would become overwhelming. This group is just another case of sometimes less is more.

Cheers
