Rookie receivers were all the talk during the first half of the 2011 NFL season, and seeing players like Julio Jones and A.J. Green come into the league and immediately make an impact thoroughly impressed me.
These guys came out of the draft with a flurry of hype and experts knew they had the talent needed to transition to the highest level.
But for others, like Doug Baldwin of the Seattle Seahawks, success has come at a much tougher rate. All 32 teams passed on Baldwin in the draft and he used this as motivation, turning in dazzling displays during the first half of his rookie year.
Just goes to show that it doesn't matter if you are a first rounder or an undrafted rookie, making the most of your opportunities will certainly get you the recognition you deserve.
