As Todd Gurley continues to tear up in
Rams it's easy to anoint him the next Adrian Peterson Michael Jordan Jersey , but sometimes players don't have the careers you might think from their rookie season. In the NFL, a player's career can change in a single play because of injury.Many players have burst on the scene in their first year, only to flame out as their careers went along. This is especially true for the running back position, which is a young man's position. The next time a rookie, like Marcus Mariota in his first NFL game, puts up huge stats in their rookie season, you may want to remember this list that shows it doesn't always go according to plan.In 2012 Greedy Williams Jersey , we saw an incredible influx of rookie quarterbacks in the NFL, with the big three being Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III and Russell Wilson. Wilson has already been to two Super Bowls and won one, Luck has carried Indianapolis to three straight postseasons, while RGIII has had trouble getting his career back on track since a serious knee injury derailed his career in a playoff game against Seattle. Ryan Tannehill was from that 2012 class as well and has also shown promise.Last year, it was a bevy of wide receivers taking the league by storm, including Odell Beckham Jr. Sione Takitaki Jersey , Mike Evans and Sammy Watkins and Kelvin Benjamin all broke 1,000 yards receiving.Here are the top 15 NFL players who peaked in their rookie season. Let's face it, New England Patriots fans are spoiled, plain and simple. Having hoisted the Lombardi Trophy four times in the last 14 years is nothing to shrug at. It doesn't hurt that they have arguably the greatest quarterback of all time in Tom Brady who always seems to stand calm, cool, and collected in the pocket when the whole country is watching.We shouldn't forget to mention the guy who seems to always wear a hooded sweatshirt no matter what mother nature brings to the football field, Bill Belichick. Belichick has had his greatest success while serving as head coach of the Patriots compared to his former roles with the Cleveland Browns and New York Jets. Belichick has a knack for getting the most out of his players. Fans shouldn't forget wide receiver Troy Brown lining up at cornerback or drafting a little known quarterback out of Kent State and having him switch to wide receiver in Julian Edelman.The draft Sheldrick Redwine Jersey , in any sport, is an inexact science. As a person making decisions that is costing an organization millions of dollars and a lot of jobs at stake, the pressure to land a franchise player can be overwhelming to say the least. How else can you explain a guy like Tom Brady lasting to the 199th overall pick?Having said all of this, the fact remains that sometimes even a mastermind like Belichick can make mistakes. Below you will find some players that Belichick has missed out on in the past 15 NFL Drafts. In some years, he made the right move by drafting cornerstone players that assisted them in winning Super Bowls. Other years, however, he made some moves that he would like to forget. Please note that in the years 2000 Austin Seibert Jersey , 2009, and 2013 the Patriots did not have a first round pick. It is also necessary to include the years 1999 and 1998 to make the list at 15, even though Belichick was not responsible for those draft picks.
