As the focus turns to the 2020 NFL Draft and the next crop of rookies, we look back at the 2019 NFL Draft class and rank the teams that aced last year’s draft.

With all eyes on Indianapolis for the Scouting Combine, NFL Draft season is in full swing as the 2020 NFL Draft is less than two months away. However, let’s take a look back at the 2019 NFL Draft.

The 2020 draft promises to provide plenty of fascination at the top of the board, with the plans of most teams in need of a quarterback still shrouded in mystery.

But, as the page turns to the next crop of rookies, it is worth looking back at the teams that aced the 2019 draft.

Here we rank the top five rookie classes from 2019.

5. Buffalo Bills

Buffalo’s rookies played a significant role in the Bills’ run to the playoffs. First-rounder Ed Oliver came on strong late in the year in a five-sack season while Cody Ford started all but one game at tackle.

Devin Singletary emerged as the clear lead running back as he racked up 969 yards from scrimmage and scored four touchdowns. Tight end Dawson Knox developed into a reliable target for Josh Allen and both he and Singletary should be focal points of the offense going forward.

The draft is primarily about hitting on your day one and day-two picks. Buffalo did that in 2019 and the result was them turning into one of the best teams in the AFC.
