The Texans, Saints and Jaguars saw major contributions from their rookies while the Ravens, Broncos and other teams were left disappointed.
The Lions' fifth-round pick made an immediate impact on special teams, leading the league in punt return average and bringing two back for scores.
The Raiders' best rookie was third-round pick Eddie Vanderdoes, who was consistent and durable (until the finale) but didn't dominate.
First-rounder Adoree' Jackson has come on at cornerback; the jury is out on fellow first-rounder Corey Davis, who was slowed by injuries.
Not surprisingly, a rebuilding 49ers team leaned heavily on its rookie class -- with Reuben Foster a dynamic presence when he was healthy.
The Falcons didn't get much from their rookie class outside of Takk McKinley, who proved he could be a terror to opposing QBs for years to come.
