    Which rookie

    Given the deep draft this past year, someone is bound for a huge year.

    Re: Which rookie

    1. WRs tend to produce earlier than other rookie positions.
    2. Fitzgerald was deemed, before the draft, to be the most NFL-ready of this deep receiving class.
    3. Green has a personal investment in the education & performance of Fitzgerald.
    4. I haven't heard how serious the Boldin injury is, but that may push Fitzgerald much more into the Arizona spot-light.

    My opinion, Fitzgerald will have the biggest impact.

    Re: Which rookie

    I went with Kevin Jones. I think he will be the starter from day 1, and get a lot of carries in Mariucci's offense. Also, the Lions have some talent on their line, so they should be improved running the ball.


    In the long run, however, I think Jackson will be the better back.

    Re: Which rookie

    I'm thinking Fitzgerald. WRs usually develop a little quicker than other rookies and with Boldin's injury, he could have to take a bigger role. Physically, he appears to be ahead of other rookie WRs, at least, and with Green having a personal interest in LF's career, Fitzgerald should get off to a quick start, in my opinion.

    I'm going with Winslow.

    His attitude is already pretty "offensive" and I only expect it to get worse.

    So naturally, he'll be the most offensive.

    Well, Winslow's attitude is already pretty "offensive", and I only expect it to get worse, so he gets my vote

    :tongue:
