Unsung rookie performer so far?


Recommended Posts

Pick one from your team, or the league in general. Starting out, for the Bills...- WR Gabriel Davis. His stats don't jump out at you or anything, but he's got Diggs, Brown, and Beasley ahead of him in the pecking order, so it's understandable. However, he has already displayed that he's a legitimate target/option, and he'll draw a team's 4th-best corner in 4-WR sets. Mismatch so far. He's shown that he's a true red-zone threat, and now we see he can burn coverage deep. 8 targets, 8 catches, 129 yards, two TD's. Granted, that's a ONE-game result for a true #1 starter, but he seems really efficient with his opportunities. Thoughts, and let's hear your candidates?

L’Jarius Sneed was leading the league in INT’s,  along with great coverage.    Until he got placed on IR.    
 

Tershawn Wharton, probably really the unsung rookie we have.  Undrafted out of Missouri Rolla and he’s getting snaps in the DL rotation already,    Hasn’t really produced much but he has some explosiveness.   Mike Danna also looks like a solid piece along the DL.

Michael Onwenu He was picked 6th RD. Steal

I wanted him in the draft for Chicago as draft sleeper. Good to see he's rocking out.

 

Chicago has 2 rookies playing exceptionally well.

Jaylon Johnson-CB has stepped in on day one and is arguably DROY at corner opposite Kyle Fuller... Chicago being so unimpressive on offense and being so loaded across the entire defense has kind of clouded that a bit.

Darnell Mooney-WR is a 5th round WR who has already worked his way up to #2 WR behind Allen Robinson (I know, not exactly a high bar to hurdle over in Chicago being the #2 WR). If Chicago wasn't such a dumpster fire offensively, this kid would be getting significantly more hype....Right now he's at 2tds 305yrds, but if our QBs could actually throw the damn ball to him when he's wide open streaking down the field, he'd be close to 600+yrs and ~7tds on the season already. Last night was the first time either Foles or Mitch have actually gotten the ball near him while he's wide open, and it was only a 50 yard play because Foles under threw the ball and Mooney had to slow up for it, leading to a tackle instead of a TD.  If he where on KC instead of Chicago, he'd be a household name by now.

The only Brown that this applies to is maybe Harrison Bryant. His stats don't wow you but he's looked good and even was the #2 TE over Njoku entering the season. With Hooper being out the past two games, Bryant saw more playing time and looked very solid against the Bengals. If he could bulk up a bit then I think he could end up being very good, as he's a smooth route runner, has good hands, and is a very willing blocker. He had a fumble vs. the Raiders which hurt us, but besides that he's proven to be a nice find in the fourth round.

Thread is made for Onwenu.

6th round OL, plugged in at G and T, given up hardly anything despite being asked to play multiple positions. Whether it was luck or expert scouting, it's ridiculous what value he's brought.

 

If you're into PFF, he was a top 10 graded PLAYER, let alone rookie, for a few weeks.

For Denver it’s Michael Ojemudia. Jeudy has made some plays yes but Michael has started since day one and while he’s had some bad moments, he’s far exceeded my expectations of him so far this rookie season. 

I came here to say OJ. He's been a welcomed surprise.
