2020 NFL Draft: NFL Rookie standouts and sleepers of the NFC East.

With the NFL season right around the corner, the attention of football fans will shift to see who from the 2020 NFL Draft class will have the most impact. With more and more college football conferences postponing their seasons until the spring, the NFL has an even bigger opportunity in the fall to gain fans and viewers.

For the college football fan looking for a boost this fall, following along with the rookies who are just a season removed from the collegiate level might be the best option. Luckily, there are plenty of NFL rookies who will make a strong impact across the NFL.

Of the divisions, the NFC East might have the best opportunities for rookies to make a difference.

In Dallas, a few rookies will see a chance at starting or at least contributing over the course of the season after building strong resumes at the collegiate level.

New York will most likely have bookend rookies on their offensive line after Nate Solder opted out.

As for Philadelphia, a wide receiver corps that couldn’t stay healthy a year ago looks much different now, sprinkled with rookies.

Finally, Washington is searching for a replacement to Derrius Guice after his release, and a rookie might be the best fit.

More scenarios will pop up throughout the season. Whether it be injuries or illness or maybe just lack of production higher up on the depth chart, there could be a big impact felt from rookies in the NFC East that could help shape the conference for years to come as new stars emerge.

Both college football fans needing their fix and NFL fans alike will want to pay close attention to the NFL rookie class of the NFC East this coming season. Some players will be standouts, showing their importance from the first snap, while others will be sleepers who earn their way onto the field.
