Weston Richburg, C/G (2014)
According to Pro Football Reference, the Colorado State product actually was more valuable in 2014 than this year, when many thought he was a Pro Bowl snub.
Bart Oates, C (1985)
The 27-year-old rookie started in 14 of the 16 games he played and earned an “Approximate Value” of 8, the same was Richburg in ’14.
Karl Nelson, T (1984)
The 24-year-old rookie right tackle started all 16 games his rookie season (and the following 2 seasons) while earning an “AV” of 7.
Justin Pugh, T/G (2013)
The 23-year-old Orangeman also started every game his rookie year, the only time in his 3-year career. PFR assigned him an AV of 6, Pro Football Focus selected Justin for their All-Rookie Team, the Pro Football Writers Association (PFWA) named him to their 2013 All-Rookie Team and Sports On Earth did as well.
Ereck Flowers, T (2015)
You already read about his honorable mention on Mel Kiper’s All-Rookie Team, he also got a 9 AV from Pro Football Reference. When three of your top rookies of all-time are all still playing, you have to get just a tad tingly about their prospects in 2016 and beyond.
