When you look at the grind rookies go through, it’s no wonder they hit the rookie wall at Week 10. As soon their final collegiate seasons end, they’re already training for the NFL Scouting Combine. After that, they train for Pro Days and private work outs with the NFL Draft soon to follow.

And as soon as they get drafted, they’re on their way to their team’s facility for rookie minicamp. Just days after that, it’s time for the whole team’s minicamp, where they try to impress the veterans on the team. Then there’s the mental stress of having a ton of information from the complex NFL playbooks dowloaded into their brains.

From there, it’s back to training and studying the playbook for camp around seven weeks later. At least veterans get to take a few weeks to let their bodies heal and their minds unwind right after the season. So the rookies that hang in there through that whole process the best will have the best rookie seasons.

But it helps to the best player too.
