Another week, another 32 NFL Observations by Nathan Jahnke finding an interesting piece of information about all 32 teams after one week of football.
Now that we’re a little over half way into the season, it’s a good time to see how the rookies have been performing. If you would like to make some observations of your own, you can do so with PFF Elite, where you can find several signature statistics for every offensive and defensive position in football.
Los Angeles Chargers: When Desmond Kinglines up in the slot, he has 11 stops in the pass game which is the most for any rookie cornerback in their first ten games over the last 12 years. The two players tied for second with ten are former Charger Antoine Cason in 2008, and current Charger Casey Hayward in 2012 when he was with the Packers.
Oakland Raiders: The Raiders are one of just two teams who have yet to use a rookie on any of their offensive snaps this season.
Los Angeles Rams: Wide receiver Cooper Kupp has had 10 defenders miss tackles on his catches. That is twice as much as any rookie wide receiver this season, and accounts for 40 percent of all missed tackles on rookie wide receivers this season.
San Francisco 49ers: The 49ers have had 15 different rookies see at least one offensive or defensive snap this season. They have a combined 2,874 offensive and defensive snaps this season which is 661 more than any other team.
