Rookies to watch
It's never too early to make any NFL predictions, so NFL.com released its list of players projected to have a campaign worthy of being named to the 2023 All-Rookie team. Will Anderson Jr. makes the Defensive Rookie list while WR/Return specialist Tank Dell is predicted to make the special teams list.
"The highly regarded edge rusher faces a tall task to meet expectations. Though he won't be the biggest defensive end in the league, the 6-foot-4, 243-pound Anderson can convert speed to power and use his length effectively from a three-point stance. He'll be a true force as a rookie under head coach DeMeco Ryans if he's able to mix up his pass-rush moves and consistently turn the corner."
"The wide receiver will likely be a factor on offense in Year 1 with the Texans, but he could also land on all-rookie squads as a returner, having handled such duties throughout his three college seasons with Houston. Willing to head directly up field after securing the ball, Dell uses his quick feet and fearlessness to explode through holes and fight through arm tackles."
