First Look: 2021 Rookie Rankings

First Look: 2021 Rookie Rankings

In this article, I present an early look at my 2021 rookie rankings.  I’ve listed my top ten quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers, and tight ends.  Not every player listed has officially declared for the 2021 NFL Draft, but each player listed is eligible in 2021.  Given the unprecedented circumstances of the forthcoming college football season, some of these players have already opted-out, and are beginning to prepare for the 2o21 NFL Draft.  Meanwhile, some players have had their seasons cancelled, or postponed as of the time of this writing.  And of course some players intend to play out the scheduled season.  Undoubtedly, there is a great deal of uncertainty surrounding this season along with the forthcoming 2021 NFL Draft.  With all of the aforementioned in mind, here is the first look at my 2021 rookie rankings.
