Hey rook, get in there and show your stuff. Adidas Billy Smith Jersey .Thats the reality of the NFL these days, when rookies, especially those selected high in the draft, not only are given a chance to prove themselves but are expected to contribute immediately. The salary cap forces it, but so do coaches eager to get more athletic skill on the field.This year, wide receivers and the guys who try to cover them are having the most impact.Such as Brandin Cooks of the Saints.He is so sharp in being able to pick things up and we use him in a lot of different ways, Drew Brees says of throwing to the first-round pick. He just continues to amaze me with his ability to compartmentalize those things and go out and execute it. If he makes a mistake it only happens once. He corrects it very quickly. Ive been impressed with that.Perhaps equally as impressive has been the work of another first-rounder, Cleveland cornerback Justin Gilbert. He started slowly but recently has been as effective as veteran Joe Haden at the other corner.I think hes really improving, Browns safety Donte Whitner. I think hes going out there and not thinking. Hes going out there to make plays and not going out there not to get beat.Thats critical in the secondary, where Chicago CB Kyle Fuller, San Diego CB Jason Verrett, Denver CB Bradley Roby, San Francisco safety Jimmie Ward, Arizona S Deone Bucannon, and Green Bay S Ha Ha Clinton-Dix have stood out in positions where the transition from college is exceptionally difficult.Not to mention the challenge of facing high-powered pro offences where receivers such as Cooks, Arizonas John Brown, Buffalos Sammy Watkins, Carolinas Kelvin Benjamin, Jacksonvilles Allen Robinson, and Philadelphias Jordan Matthews have so smoothly fit in.Its huge, Packers safeties coach Darren Perry says of the learning curve, particularly for a safety in his first NFL season.I mean its just a totally different game then the college game. The offences that you face are different. You see a little more zone read nowadays with some of the teams that we play, but for the most part its a different game.And so (Clinton-Dix) is learning, and I think every day for him is a new experience. You can see him growing, still has a ways to go. ... So we just got to keep plugging, were taking nothing for granted, as youve got to be with young guys.The most difficult positions for rookies to make a difference usually are quarterback and anywhere on the offensive line.While Derek Carr has been Oaklands starter from the get-go, and Teddy Bridgewater and Blake Bortles have ascended in Jacksonville, neither is close to producing the way Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck, Russell Wilson and Cam Newton did in recent seasons.But the offensive line has produced quite a few noteworthy debut seasons, ranging from centres Corey Linsley (Green Bay), Bryan Stork (New England) and Russell Bodine (Cincinnati) to tackles JaWuan James (Miami) and Justin Britt (Seattle) to guards Zach Martin (Dallas) and Joel Bitonio (Cleveland).They are old-school offensive linemen, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett says of his young blockers, but that fits for all the rookies up front. They dont say a whole lot. They go out and do their job. They do it the right way.Not all rookies are doing things the right way, nor do they even come close to that.Last springs top overall draft pick, DE-LB Jadeveon Clowney, got hurt in Houstons opener and only just returned. Giants WR Odell Beckham Jr. injured his hamstring in the first practice of training camp and only recently got into the lineup.Falcons OT Jake Matthews has been ineffective and bothered by a sprained ankle. The Lions Eric Ebron, considered one of the best tight ends to enter the league in years, has been slowed by injuries.And Johnny Manziel sits patiently on Clevelands bench, the most touted rookie backup since, well, Tim Tebow.Still, this has been an exceptionally strong rookie crop, with solid work by Ravens linebacker C.J. Mosley, Vikings RB Jerick McKinnon and Chargers RB Branden Oliver.And its punctuated by the performances of three kickers: Washington punter Tress Way, and placekickers Chandler Catanzaro and Cody Parkey.Way is showing the way by leading the NFL with 49.7 gross yards per kick.Arizonas Catanzaro set the rookie mark by making his first 16 field goal tries. Philadelphias Parkey is not far behind, hitting 14 out of 15 kicks.Catanzaro was an undrafted free agent who beat out veteran Jay Feely in the preseason and has been spotless since. Even his kickoffs, something he didnt handle in college, have been strong.We have some good friends at Clemson. Theyve always talked about it, Cardinals coach Bruce Arians says, adding that special teams coach Amos Jones had worked him out and knew about him. And we kept our fingers crossed that he did not get drafted because he was a guy we had marked to get right away as soon as college free agency started.Nice move. One of many made by NFL teams in adding impactful rookies.___AP NFL website: and Adidas Jaroslav Halak Jersey . The Flames announced Monday that Treliving, a former assistant general manager with the Coyotes, will take over the vacant GM spot in Calgary. "Im ready for this,"Treliving said. Adidas Anthony Beauvillier Jersey .com) - Kam Chancellor bobbed his head in celebration as he crossed the goal line on his game-clinching 90-yard interception return. .com) - Robert Martin and Josh Hicks combined for more than 300 yards rushing and three touchdowns, as Rutgers rolled past North Carolina, 40-21, in the Quick Lane Bowl.The San Jose Sharks have stormed out of the gate and have taken top spot in the NHL Power Rankings for the first update of the regular season. Its still very early, so there is a lot of room for statistical fluctuation, but the Sharks dominance, which includes a league-best goal differential (plus-17) and shot differential (plus-19.6 per game) makes them a worthy candidate for the number one ranking, just ahead of the St. Louis Blues and Colorado Avalanche, the two other unbeatens. The Avalanche are one of the major surprises early, ranking 26th in the preseason, but up to third in the seasons first update, thanks largely to sensational goaltending. Other teams that made big moves up into the Top 10 include the Toronto Maple Leafs, going from 16 to eight, despite missing some key players including right winger David Clarkson, and the Calgary Flames, who vaulted from 28 to nine, after a 3-0-2 start to the season. Among those to fall early, the Philadelphia Flyers have dropped from 13 to 25, after a slow sttart already cost head coach Peter Laviolette his job and injuries have taken a couple of top six forwards out of the lineup. Adidas Jason Chimera Jersey. The Ottawa Senators have surrendered an appalling 43 shots per game and that contributed to their fall from six to 23. As for the rest of the Canadian teams, the Montreal Canadiens moved up from 10 to five, on the strength of improving young forwards and the Winnipeg Jets, getting big contributions from newcomers Michael Frolik and Jacob Trouba, jumped from 23 to 12. The Vancouver Canucks have one regulation win in six tries, combined with a couple of notable lineup absences, that dropped them from 12 to 17 and the Edmonton Oilers, with problems throughout the lineup, fell from 24 to 29. As noted, its early, so there is room for drastic change by the time next weeks rankings roll around.
