With the 2015 NFL Draft in the books, it's not too early to start thinking about which rookies are most likely to succeed next season. Here's a look at my projection for the 2015 All-Rookie team.
Note: This post was published before La'el Collins signed with the Dallas Cowboys as an undrafted free agent and pass rusher Dante Fowler and tight end Jeff Heuerman suffered season-ending knee injuries. Now, Collins is a legitimate threat to make the 2015 All-Rookie team, likely as a guard. Fowler and Heuerman were on this list prior to suffering injuries during rookie minicamp, and we wish both players the best in their recovery.
Eric Rowe, Round 2 Pick 47, Philadelphia Eagles: Could easily end up playing CB, but his versatility and length make him someone who could potentially match up with the Odell Beckhams and Dez Bryants of the world. ... If Rowe plays more cornerback, Quinten Rollins (second-round pick of the Green Bay Packers) could surprise if he plays full-time safety.
None: No kickers were selected in this year's draft. Justin Manton (Baltimore Ravens) and Josh Lambo (San Diego Chargers) -- two of the highest-rated talents at the position in the 2015 class -- have landed with NFL teams as undrafted free-agent signees, but Justin Tucker is entrenched as the kicker in Baltimore, and Lambo isn't a lock to make the Chargers' roster.
