NFL Rookies Who Will Be Household Names by Season’s End

Early success in the NFL translates to longer careers. Because there’s such a “win now” mentality in the league, one that disregards the progression of players during practice, instead focusing on scheme, a player almost has to be NFL-ready coming out of college to stick around for more than three or four years.

After a long weekend of excitement, it’s hard to be the one who spoils the fun, but not all of the players your team selected are going to be All-Pros. In fact, the majority of them will have average careers, looking for ventures outside of the sport around 2020.

Some players fell perfectly in the draft, though. There are at least eight prospects who look to be immediate impact players, generating talk around the league and for pundits on television. If you follow the sport on a week-to-week basis, it’s going to be nearly impossible to avoid those eight names during the fall.

We’ll break down who those players are, how they fit with their new roster and what to expect from their first year in the NFL. If you’re lucky, maybe your team landed one of these athletes over the past weekend.

Back when he was 7, Andre Burakovsky tagged along to watch his father play in a professional hockey game in Sweden. The opposing goalie was none other than Henrik Lundqvist. Burakovsky, now barely 20 and an NHL rookie with the Capitals, found himself facing Lundqvist, now the goalie for the Rangers, and the kid came through in a big way Wednesday night. Burakovsky scored his first two postseason goals and Braden Holtby saved a penalty shot, giving Washington a 2-1 victory over New York for a 3-1 lead in the Eastern Conference semifinals.
