Sudden Impact (Rookies) 5 Af Rookies Mentioned


Recommended Posts

Interesting read. Expected better ranking on Tevin Colmen, especially since the topic is in regards to impact.

Thoughts?

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap3000000492541/article/sudden-impact-projecting-top-100-nfl-rookies-of-2015

Members of the 2015 NFL Draft class are settling in with their new franchises and are looking to make an impression on the league early in their first season. Here's a ranking of the top 100 rookies based on who will make the biggest impact in Year 1.

1. QB Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Bottom line -- nobody in this draft class will have a greater impact on their new team than the guy under center for Lovie Smith.

2. S Landon Collins, New York Giants: Collins is already assuming a leadership role for the Giants and fills a huge need for a team that will have to contain some high-powered offenses.

3. WR Amari Cooper, Oakland Raiders: The Alabama star will provide an instant boost to an offense that was dreadful last season and enters 2015 looking to pass the ball with second-year pro Derek Carr.

4. WR/RS Tyler Lockett, Seattle Seahawks: Meet Russell Wilson's new best friend, a dynamo out of the slot who will create plenty of mismatches and boost the return game instantly.

5. RB Todd Gurley, St. Louis Rams: Gurley will be the workhorse back for a run-heavy Rams offense, barring any setbacks as he returns from an ACL tear.

6. QB Marcus Mariota, Tennessee Titans: The Week 1 starter for the Titans will have plenty of pressure to perform as the new face of the franchise in the most interesting offensive experiment in the NFL.

7. WR Nelson Agholor, Philadelphia Eagles: Jeremy Maclin is gone and his immediate replacement could put up similar numbers in Chip Kelly's offense.

8. WR Kevin White, Chicago Bears: Defenses might rotate toward Alshon Jeffrey this year, so White will have opportunities to make big plays if Jay Cutler gets him the ball.

9. RB Tevin Coleman, Atlanta Falcons: The path is there for Coleman to be the primary tailback, and he will be a big part of the team's plans early in his career.

10. RB Melvin Gordon, San Diego Chargers: The team will still throw the ball around, but Gordon should be a focal point for the offense from Day 1.

11. DE Vic Beasley, Atlanta Falcons: There were plenty of high-quality edge rushers in this year's draft, but things set up best for Beasley to have the biggest immediate impact.

28. WR Justin Hardy, Atlanta Falcons: Hardy will fill the Harry Douglas role in Atlanta and brings a set of sure hands and some savvy route running to it as Matt Ryan's new target.

67. DT Grady Jarrett, Atlanta Falcons: Not an every-down player, but he'll be able to provide a nice boost in the trenches as a tough guy to block.

83. CB Jalen Collins, Atlanta Falcons: Collins had moments where he didn't contribute during his final season at LSU, but he can reverse that to start his career in Atlanta.

I would just like to point out that the OP was structured incredibly.

-Listed the top 10 players, just for the general interest of those that like lists.

-Listed all Falcons players appearing on the list.

-Included link in case anyone wanted to go and read the full list themselves, keeping the thread short and relevant to our interests.

-No unnecessary formatting making things harder to read.

Great job, man. Kudos for the thread posting abilities you showed. People should take notes. You get a +1 from me.

Was very close to my idea of perfectly done. All he had left to do was put the whole article part of the post in quotes so when and if someone quotes him it doesn't take a whole page and its perfect.

I'm a very hairy llama.

I'd just assume that burden belong to the poster that feels it necessary to quote the OP. Also, quoted text is still editable so you can cut down the specific parts you'd like to address if necessary. If you are replying to the thread, I think it's safe to assume you are adding to the conversation started by the OP and you don't have to quote it. If you are replying to another response within the thread, that's when quoting is more appropriate. That's just me though.

Weird list, I see Hardy as our slot/dime and there's a good chance Jalen takes our RCB job, strange to see Hardy so far above Collins.

You do know that Hardy is a WR and not a CB, right?

Yeah if people actually did that, but they don't. Just something I have always found annoying. People will quote an OP with the entire 3 page article and it just clutters things up. Myself and a few others format it like I said and it makes things run much smoother. Jbo is one them. You'll see that whenever he posts an article it is all in quotes for that very reason. I know it sounds weird, but it does help.

I've never heard it for a receiver, always just when referring to a 6th DB on the field.

Yeah it generally means the 4th corner, but as the term slot receiver lead to the term slot corner, dime corner's sort of transferred too, apparently not as mainstream as I thought.

I've never heard of a nickel corner being referred to as a slot corner. Just nickel or dime. The slot receiver has always been a slot receiver from olden days. Same with nickel and dime corner.

Yeah, I've heard of nickel and dime referring to defensive packages and how much field you have to protect to keep the offense from converting.

I've heard of a slot corner, like when we talk about Tru and Jalen playing outside and moving Alford "to the slot" where he would cover slot receivers. However, I have never heard of those terms crossing over to the offensive side because you don't run a nickel package on offense. You can have 3 or 4 wide receivers, but usually the formations are already named whereas defensive alignments are based on covering what the offense is doing.

I think we should do away with OP quotes. You don't need to tell us what you're referring to when it's the OP. It's like responding to a personal email by quoting the original email
