PIGSKIN’s Final 2021 All-Rookie Team

January 13, 2022

The regular season has concluded and I have my final All-Rookie Team for you. Because it wraps up the season I am also including a list of notable Rookies who just couldn’t quite impress me enough to make the team. Some of these guys were injured part of the season, while others came on late after a slow start.

Honorable Mention

Paulson Adebo/CB/Saints; Rashod Bateman/WR/Ravens;  Ben Cleveland/OG/Ravens; Nico Collins/WR/Texans; Divine Diablo/S/Raiders; Nate Hobbs/CB/Raiders; Zach McPhearson/K/Bengals; Davis Mills/QB/Texans; Elijah Mitchell/RB/49’ers; Elijah Moore/WR/Jets; Rondale Moore/WR/RS/Cards; Josh Myers/OC/Packers; Royce Newman/OG/Packers;  Az Ojulari/ER/Giants; Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah/LB/Browns;  Jaelen Phillips/ER/OB/Dolphins; Trey Smith/OG/Chiefs; Amon-Ra St. Brown/WR/Lions; Rhamondre Stevenson/RB/Patriots;  Tommy Tremble/TE/Panthers; Joe Tryon/DE/ER/Bucs; Pete Werner/LB/Saints; Marco Wilson/CB/Cards.

You may have noticed the lack of QB names like  LAWRENCE/LANCE/FIELDS/WILSON. They were nursed along, or force fed, and their best is yet to come. But JONES & MILLS showed me the most overall in 2021.

Cheers
