Every year, the NFL relies more and more on rookies. Success in the NFL draft has become part and parcel of any franchise hoping to have long-term success in the league. 

Along those same lines, teams have come to count on their rookies more and more every year. It only makes sense. College athletes are coming into the league better and more prepared every season.
