  • Your 2008 All-Rookie team

    I was watching NFLTA's retrospective on the 2006 QBs and I was thinking - what is your 2008 All-Rookie team, one year later? How does it compare with the 2008 All-Prospect team you had in your head? How many did you get right?

    QB-Matt Ryan
    RB-Chris Johnson
    RB-Matt Forté
    WR-DeSean Jackson
    WR-Eddie Royal
    TE-John Carlson
    LT-Ryan Clady
    LG-Jeremy Zuttah\
    OC-Mike Pollack - Not too sure on interior lineman rookies
    RG-Chilo Rachal /
    RT-Jeff Otah

    DE-Philip Merling
    DT-Sedrick Ellis
    DT-Jason Jones
    DE-Kendall Langford
    OLB-Keith Rivers
    MLB-Jerod Mayo
    OLB-Bryan Kehl
    CB-Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
    FS-Kenny Phillips
    SS-Chris Horton
    CB-Antoine Cason

    *Obvious omittions include Glen Dorsey, Chris Long, Jake Long(very unfortunate due to the great play of Clady), Run DMC

    A few surprises especially both Dolphin ends, especially as they play in a 34, however I couldn't think of anyone else except Cliff Avril who is just a pass rusher-albeit a good one

      That's a good looking team but I would have Brandon Flowers starting over Cason and maybe, maybe Marcus Harrison starting over Jones.

        I was thinking of Flowers but thought Cason was fantastic and quite underrated as the Chargers nickel. Flowers probably should be there as he started but sure. I have to disagree about Jones. I thought he was a great impact player, now whether or not that was due to playing on a great line has to be seen but I really liked him last year

          I dont see how someone could put Antoine Cason or Brandon Flowers over Leodis McKelvin at CB

            McKelvin doesn't belong on there at all unless you're listing a returner.

              Because McKelvin is a good return man while Flowers is a good (soon to be great) cornerback.

              Flowers was very good for the Chiefs on a defense that had a historically bad pass rush. Once he gets a pass rush to help him out, and some more experience too, he will be among the top cornerbacks in the league.

                are u really trying to say McKelvin isnt a good cornerback?

                wow

                Buffalo's pass rush was also absolutely horrible... So you could also say the same thing about Leodis

                  He's good, just not on Flowers' level. And Buffalo's wasn't as bad as Kansas City's.

                      Lofton would probably be second team middle linebacker, but not Douglas. Douglas was good, but a few wide receivers were better than him.

                        KR/PR = Clifton Smith.

                        Zuttah is more of a RG (IDK what side Rachal is on).

                          I made my own team with changes.

                            Was it historically horrible? 10 sacks in a season horrible? I doubt it.

                              How could someone place either Langford or Merling ahead of Chris Long? Not to be a homer, but he is much more deserving than either of them. I would have been less offended if you chose to put Trevor Scott on there instead of him, but not Merling or Langford. To the guy who listed Long and Avril, well done my friend.
