NFL Rookie Rankings: Josh Jacobs tops the list, Kyler Murray isn't on it

October 6, 2019

With four full weeks in the 2019 NFL season's rearview mirror, it's a perfect time to evaluate the league's top rookies. The draft class brought a lot of intrigue, and it hasn't disappointed one month into the campaign.

We asked six of our writers and analysts to rank their top 10 rookies to this point. Then we pooled those lists, using Heisman-esque scaling for each ranking, and came up with one overall rank, 1 to 10. Our NFL Nation reporters checked in with analysis of how the first-year stars have played thus far, along with what to expect over the rest of this season. And finally, ESPN Stats & Information's Seth Walder examined the numbers and identified one under-the-radar rookie performer to keep an eye one.

Let's dive in, starting with a talented first-rounder out of Alabama.
