      Pretty sure the Vikes win the worst class thread. When you can make a legitimate arguement that your 3rd string QB who went 1-1 and as a starter was the best rookie then it is a pretty solid indication that your class absolutely stunk. I still like the Griffen pick for value and I just hope we have one of those classes that looks horrible now but turns out good long term, but it really just doesn't feel that way.


      Props to BK on the sig!

        I think it's the Buccaneers and it's not even close:

        Starters found in that Draft:
        - Gerald McCoy DT
        - Arrellious Benn WR
        - Mike Williams WR
        - Cody Grimm SS
        - Ted Larson LG (UDFA)
        - Lagarrette Blount RB UDFA

        Guys they drafted and contributed:
        - Myron Lewis CB: Came on during the last 5 games and played very well when Talib went down.
        - Brian Price DT: didn't start but played a lot and was playing very well but had a season ending hip injury.
        - Dakoda Watson SLB: Was a special teamer most of the year, but made some plays when he started and got a chance to play. Might have a future as our SLB .

        Then, they go out and pluck guys who were drafted and cut or not drafted and have contributed:
        - Robert Malone P UDFA
        - Dezmon Briscoe WR Training camp cut from CIN.
        - Larry Assante SS/FS: signed from CLE practice sqaud
        - Derek Hardmen RG: UDFA :started the last 4 games for the Bucs and when you dominate Ndmakung Suh and Sedrick Ellis, then I think he might have a future in this league.
        - Al Woods DT: Signed from NO practice squad.

        All of these guys contributed in a huge way and the Bucs still went 10-6. That is impressive.

          Yeah, your drafted TE's did combine for 16 TDs and you did draft a Pro Bowl starting corner.

          The Bucs had an outstanding rookie class, but the Patriots class this year is probably the greatest rookie class ever seen.

            No disrespect on the Pats class, because they had a very good one, but the Bucs found about 8 future starters in that class, maybe more.

              Larsen was not a UDFA he was actually drafted by the Patriots.

              8 starters is impressive but you need to think about how empty the Bucs' cupboard was when their rookies got there.

                And yet they still managed to win 10 games.

                      RealityCheck doesn't represent any Patriots fans and I'm fairly convinced this is his first year watching football. I'm thrilled our tight ends platooned for such a good season...but come on.

                          Pats had a great class which should be really good long term but I highly doubt it is the greatest first year by a draft class and it certainly has a long way to go to match some previous classes that teams have had overall. Didn't the Steelers get 3 or 4 HOFers in one rookie class?

                            I think both are on par with each other.

                            However, it is definitely not the greatest rookie class ever seen.

                              Thread title reads: "What team had the best rookie class this year?"

                              Nowhere in the title does it says draft class, sir.
                              I agree with what your saying, just repeating what was said. What the title says, and what he says in the 1st post are two different things. I think you should include rookies on the team period.
