Early Round Instant Impact NFL Rookies

Going from college standout to NFL rookie is not easy. The 2020 NFL Draft class will be starting further behind than usual, considering a lack of rookie mini camps thanks to COVID-19. Through video conferencing and virtual workouts, these NFL rookies are relocating across the country and trying to transition to the professional ranks amid a pandemic.

While some of these selections might have been head-scratchers back in April, there’s clear opportunity for success for some. General managers envision how these players fit, while coaches and coordinators adjust game plans and scheme fits to maximize this new asset.

These NFL rookies are moving into new situations in strange circumstances. Some will have to play right away, whereas others will sit and wait. Although much has been made of Miami’s selection of Tua Tagovailoa, the Alabama product probably won’t be the starter for Week One. The same is true of new Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert.

However, there are several NFL rookies from the early rounds of the draft that are likely to have an instant impact. Here’s a look at 10 of them.
