Rounding Up Early Buzz About This Year's Rookie Class
USA TODAY Sports

With the NFL draft now squarely in the rear-view mirror, the greenhorns selected will soon be called upon to contribute on the grandest stage in the sport. It's time to round up early buzz about this year's rookie class and find out the plans that teams have for some of their top picks.

It's not unusual for media and fans to speculate about a neophyte's potential role, and that's happened in spades this past week. With interest in the draft still at its zenith, there's a lot of information to be taken in. Here, we'll present you with many of the juiciest stories and rumors emanating from the festivities of draft week.

In this column, you'll learn that two teams are taking extremely different approaches to getting their first-round quarterback on the field, while another is completely bungling the process altogether.

We'll also discuss the viability of a second-round receiver being ready for training camp; where a first-round offensive lineman is projected to start; the fact that a fourth-round running back could feasibly end up starting as a rookie; and determine whether a second-round cornerback will make an immediate impact in Year 1.

Here is the roundup of early buzz regarding this year's rookie class.
