The NFL's best second-year players at every position in 2022

Rookies! They're everywhere when we talk about the NFL. They get their own awards at the end of the year -- they even get their own awards every month.

But what about last year's rookies? They've disappeared into the pool of veterans, but the second season can mean a lot to developing players. So how are they doing?

I've picked out a top player at each position based on a combination of advanced stats from Football Outsiders, ESPN Stats & Information and Sports Info Solutions. Some players make great strides in Year 2 after a forgettable Year 1, and others just continue the momentum they built.

These are the players having the best second seasons through the halfway point of the 2022 campaign.
