NFL Rookies: Which Impress or Disappoint?


Every year I watch the NFL Combine and every year I pick out the rookies I think will be awesome NFL players. Some of my good picks include; Jay Cutler, Maurice Jones Drew and this year, Joe Flacco. Some of my bad picks; Vernon Davis, Kellen Clemons and Vincent Jackson. I do this mainly to help me with my fantasy football drafts. To get a grip on who might be worth filling in a spot on my roster and soon become the next Adrian Peterson.
So we are at the halfway point of the NFL season, which rookies impress you and which make you want to turn off the tv???
My favorites are Flacco(that catch last weekend gets him rookie of the year if you ask me!), Matt Ryan, Chris Johnson, Steve Slaton, Eddie Royal, Donnie Avery and DeSean Jackson.
Disappoints are Rashard Mendenhall, Ray Rice, Darren McFadden, Felix Jones and Glenn Dorsey.
So let me know which are you favorites and which are busts??

How can a guy be a disappointment if he's on IR and not playing?

Just a rookie disappointment, not for his whole career. Hype was huge for McFadden coming out so you would consider his year a disappointment thus far considering he has been injured for most of it.

Being a Steelers fan, I was thinking of Mendenhall, but thanks for the clarification.

Mendenhall has had a very disappointing rookie season. I was so pumped when he was going to start and then the Ravens knocked him out. That is what I mean, with all the hype, that is disappointing, not the players fault just disappointing.
Are you ready for Monday Night Grumpy?????
