We are now one quarter of the way through the regular season. Teams are starting to develop and the top players are starting to show why they are superstars.
The Denver Broncos still have some growing to do. Are they the team that demolished the Raiders in Week 4? Or are they the team that struggled to compete in Week 3 against the Texans? This team will be a work in progress throughout the season and we may not know the answer until the end of the season.
However, we are beginning to see the individuals who can play and who will be able to compete in this league.
The Denver Broncos selected seven rookies in the 2012 NFL Draft. So how has this class of 2012 done so far?
We know that the 2011 class was very good: Linebacker Von Miller won the Defensive Rookie of the Year award, safety Rahim Moore and offensive lineman Orlando Franklin are both starters, Quinton Carter, Julius Thomas, Nate Irving, and Virgil Green all remain on the team as contributors, even Mike Mohamed and Jeremy Beal both have roster spots.
So how does this rookie class stack up?
