The Unofficial Pre-First OTA Rookie Fantasy Prediction


We do it every year (except for the hopelessly NFL-wise, prudent, and practical). We long for gem-in-the-rough rookies to exceed all expectations while becoming training camp 'rags-to-football-riches' legends who spark our imaginations. In honor of this tradition, I suggest the following poll (so those of us who love to say "I told you so" over 'Redzone Redmans' can thump our chests or gnash our teeth when our predictions pan out or fall flat on their collective faces).

Note: Please provide your predictions for each rookie plus your answers to the questions that follow.

1. Biggest draft disappointment?

2. Rookie who makes the final 53 against the longest odds?

3. Rookie whose play has the greatest positive impact in 2013?

4. Winner of this year's "Redzone Redman" award? (Note, can include 2nd year rookies)

(My responses as a sample...)

1. Jarvis Jones: I think he'll be too slow to cover TEs and backs, too weak against the run, and unable to generate pressure.

2. Terence Garvin: Undersized linebacker who started at safety for two years before being switched to LB. I'm guessing the team sees him as a defensive specialist for replacing Foote or Williams on passing downs. (Or for tracking read-option QBs)

3. Le'Veon Bell: Just a hunch--I've got my fingers crossed.

4. Derek Moye. (6-5, 4.4 forty, good hands...I expect him to study for a year (on the practice squad for a year) under Plaxico Burgess before becoming a WR fixture in the coming years.
